Projects & Patterns, Toys
Come knit an adorable folk-style doll seamlessly and from the top down with toy knitting expert Susan B. Anderson. Susan’s patterns from the ebook Mary, Millie & Morgan, published by Quince and Co., will be provided and used during class to take the students on a super-fun seamless doll knitting adventure! Although students will be working on a specific project during class, many toy-knitting tips, tricks, techniques, and skills will be shared and demonstrated along the way. Some of the technique demonstrations and skills worked on during class include: Casting on a small number of stitches on double-pointed needles; working in the round on a small number of stitches on a small number of stitches; short rows; duplicate stitch; doll hair-tying techniques; face embroidery; picking up stitches; placing stitches on scrap yarn; closing holes and gaps in your toy; gauge; stuffing discussions; and more! Please note: Toys are great for kids, but knitting them can be complicated for a kid to master. This class is fast-paced and intended for Intermediate-level knitters; please be sure you have the proper skill level so that you get the most out of the class!
