Sock Yarn Bunny & Little Dragon with Susan B. Anderson

From the renowned designer and author of Topsy Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys and Itty Bitty Toys, Susan B. Anderson brings her magical sensibility to a technique class using sock yarn to create a beloved toy. Grab that languishing ball of sock yarn, striping or solid, or leftovers, and head to this class to create this adorable seamless sock yarn bunny knit entirely in one piece, and a sock yarn little dragon. We will be learning about after-thought arms, legs and ears, face embroidery, stuffing techniques, picking up and knitting onto your toy, seamless toy-knitting from the bottom-up, Kitchener stitch, various increases and decreases, putting your toy together, specific techniques for Little Dragon, face embroidery, how to use safety eyes, and much more.
