Crochet is cool in primary school. The kids love the beanies, the retro sweaters, the chunky scarves and the backpack dangles. Mums, 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, colourful and fun projects that they're looking for. While there are more and more books on 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. Guys will actually wear the hoody, rugged sweater, skateboarder hat and fingerless gloves. All the projects featured use the latest yarns, including popular and fun super-soft and very textural yarns in bright and energetic colours. 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.
