Projects & Patterns, Toys
Come to class ready to work on an adorable pint-size hedgehog with a super unique seamless construction. This tiny toy is cleverly constructed and packs in a lot of techniques along the way! Through large group discussion, small group demonstrations, and individual help, renowned knit toy-designer Susan B. Anderson will help you become a more confident toy knitter. In class students will work on the Hedgie pattern, but discussion and demonstrations will cover loads of toy-knitting tips and tricks, such as face embroidery, stuffing tricks, caring for knit toys, the best fiber content for toy-knitting, gauge tips, a universal tip for remembering Kitchener stitch, and a super-fun twisted loop stitch that can be used in different projects. The Hedgie project is small, so some may even finish in class, but everyone will leave with some new toy-knitting skills in their hands!
Technique Requirements: To cast on and work in the round on small numbers of stitches on double-pointed needles (unless you are using magic loop but be aware that the pattern is written for dpns—be adept enough to change it yourself if you prefer that method). Simple increases and decreases.
