We love our 9" straight Serendipity Needles for aspiring young knitters. Made in North America in smooth white birch and handcrafted with polymer clay finials, these beautiful tools will be loved by children and adults alike.
Sized 5.5mm and 6mm for worsted weight yarn, the needles can be paired with a brightly coloured ball of Noro Kureyon and our Knitting for Children book series--the perfect gift for a young crafter.
We think A First Book of Knitting for Children (and it's sequel, Knitting for Children: a second book), are two of the best knitting books available--and not just for children. The books, based on the Waldorf educational approach to knitting, are packed with step-by-step illustrations and colour photographs, clear instructions, fun projects matched to a young person's attention span, beyond-the-basics skills such as fixing mistakes and much much more.
