Description - Crochet Kid Stuff by Sharon Mann
20 easy crochet projects for girl and boy apparel and accessoriesCrochet is cool in elementary school. The kids love the beanies, the retro sweaters, the chunky scarves, the backpack dangles. Moms, grandmothers, and aunts are furiously crocheting for this age group, but they're having trouble finding current patterns, especially for boys. Here are the quick, colorful, fun projects they're looking for. While there are more and more books of hip knitting and crochet for women, this book offers a unique collection of crochet patterns for this special underserved age group. Girls will love the cute hats, sweaters, mini-bags, and hair flair; boys will actually wear the hoody, rugged sweater, skateboarder beanie, and fingerless gloves; and everybody will show off backpack danglies, pencil buddies, and hacky sacks. All the projects featured use the latest yarns, including popular and fun super-soft and very textural yarns in bright in energetic colors. Patterns, with simple stitches, mostly single and double crochet, provide three levels of sizing and classic styles perfect for this age range. Each project includes creative touches that kids will love.
