beginner knitting instructions

I'm looking for a simple page of illustrated knitting instructions to include with a Christmas gift to two granddaughters, age 13. They are each getting a set of knitting needles and yarn for a scarf. I'd like to include a page to help them get started.-

  • I would recommend skipping the written instruction and getting an instructional CD-rom instead. I taught myself to knit using one I picked up at Joann's for around $10 - seeing it in 'action' so to speak really helped more than any other book had.

  • I crochet but here are some knit instructions.  I'm not sure if this will help but it's worth a shot :)

  • I could never follow things in writing. I love the cd idea.
