Top knit tips

This fun little book can be made from scraps of yarn in your stash. It is intended to be used under adult supervision. If you want to give it to a little one then embroider embellishments onto the pages and omit the buttons.

You can watch how-to videos of different crochet techniques on Alternatively, three-strand plaits could be used in place of crochet chains or you could embroider chain stitches directly onto the pages. For the page edging, you could pick up and knit or work blanket stitch instead.
