I think it's a little young.
But she wants to imitate you!
Work first on "finger knitting" - a series of slip knots. Do you crotchet? It's like making a chain, but without the crotchet hook. This can be a bracelet, necklace, bridle for a horse, collar, etc. It gets them working with the yarn. My almost 5 yo cannot really finger knit without my help.
You can also get a "knitty-knotty, kniting nancee, spool knitter - they have many names. You could make one, too. You wrap yarn around knobs or pegs and then use a tool to loop it off. This makes a nice tube - hat for a doll, barbie dress, even a tube sock! My DD can use the hook to loop the yarn off the pegs all on her own, but she cannot wrap the yarn.
I learned to crotchet at 7 because I couldn't handle the 2 needles. I learned to knit at 8.
