Toy Making + Magic Loop Knitting Workshop
Quick to make and oh-so adorable, knitted toys are a wonderful way to make a unique
In this class you’ll learn the Magic Loop, a technique that allows you to knit small circumference projects seamlessly using only one long circular needle. Ideal for making toys, you can also use Magic Loop when making hats, socks, sleeves, and much more without having to change between different types of needles.
We’ll also cover embroidery and embellishment techniques so you can create eyes and
faces. Sophie will also share her tips on stuffing, seaming, and finishing so you can feel
confident in having all the skills to create a new knitted pal!
Yarn will be provided for the class.
