Susan B. Anderson
Join renowned knit-toy designer for some seriously fun sheep knitting and toy-knitting tips. The pattern will be provided for students. In class, students will work on knitting their own Sheep! toys in either a textured wrap stitch, a loopy stitch or some simple stranded colorwork. Susan’s classes include large group discussion, small group demonstrations and individual attention. As students work on their selected sheep style loads of general toy-knitting tips and tricks will be taught as well. Tips and guidance on face embroidery, stuffing tricks, fiber choices, gauge information, a super-helpful kitchener stitch tip for memorizing, and ways to get your toys to look great and to stand the test of time, and more will all be shared. Students will leave class being more confident toy-knitters!
