Get a grasp on knitting with double-pointed needles and make something sweet while you’re at it! In this class, we’ll go through Mochimochi Land’s Hearts pattern from start to finish, covering techniques such as the long-tail cast-on, how to begin a circular project with a small number of stitches, increase and decrease stitches, separating one round into two, and finishing a circular piece.
Technique Requirements: knit/purl
• 10 yards of worsted-weight yarn (or your preferred thickness yarn) in one color plus optional accent color for eyes
