If You Want to Knit Some Mittens
In this humorous picture book, a girl’s desire to knit mittens leads to something even better: the warmth of friendship.
How do you knit a pair of mittens? The first step is to get a sheep of course! In this playful story, a girl follows 18 steps to knit mittens–from bringing home a sheep to carding, spinning, and dyeing the wool to knitting the mittens. But along the way, her mischievous sheep creates chaos and wins her heart. By wintertime, the girl has sunny-yellow mittens, the sheep has a sunny-yellow hat, and together they’re ready for adventure. This tale of patience, creativity, and friendship is knitted from skeins of humor and love.

- Watch. Connect. Read. John Schu interviews Laura and illustrator Angela Matteson. “Honestly, who was the first person who looked at a sheep and thought, ‘a cozy, soft scarf, that’s what I’ll make’? But that’s the surprise and joy of making things—that transformation.”
