Free Ebook on Teaching Knitting in Schools

Scotland’s Arran Knitting Company is offering a free guide to teachers to show how traditional knitting skills can be introduced to the next generation. Textile artist Lynn Gray Ross said, “I am providing a worldwide on-line resource for teachers of all ages and stages, based on my own experience and my work with primary and secondary teachers over 30 years, including development of the award winning learning programme “Connecting Threads”.



Knitting is portable and inexpensive.  Teachers around the world are discovering that, among students of various ages,   it promotes calmness and attention as well as  mathematical-logical , visual-spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, and  interpersonal skills.

To order the guide in pdf form: simply log on to http://patterns.on-arran.com/page/Contact+Us and send a request for the Guide to Knitting in the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.
