Virtual Knitting LIVE is back on in September, and I’m teaching two tiny toy knitting classes!
September 11: Tiny Toy Knitting Basics: Unicorns and Rainbows
In this class, we’ll knit a tiny unicorn together, covering all the techniques from start to finish: knitting on double-pointed needles, I-cord legs and horn, and embroidering a magical mane and tail. We’ll also go over how to use mattress stitch to shape knitted tubes into a little rainbow, so your unicorn can have a friend! (Sorry, frog is not included in this class!)
September 12: Short Rows in Toy Knitting: Tiny Alpaca
Learn to tackle more advanced knitted toys with wrap & turn short rows! We’ll discuss this technique as it applies to toys and get started on knitting a tiny alpaca that incorporates it. In addition to short rows, we’ll cover picking up stitches, I-cord limbs, and face embroidery. By the end of the class you’ll be on your way to finishing your first alpaca, probably with a Cheez-its-munching herd to follow!
Technique Requirements: Circular knitting
👉 See the Vogue Knitting LIVE website for more info and registration! (Classes are listed under my name, Anna Hrachovec.)
September 19: Knit a Tiny Gnome with me!
In this class you will learn to knit a tiny gnome, a project that can be modified into all kinds of different little people! In this class we’ll cover all the techniques used in the tiny gnome pattern. Your gnome can be clothed or gnaked – your choice!
