Fill your house with cheerful holiday gnomes this Winter season and add some new knitting techniques to your repertoire! We will be working in the round on either dpns, a 32" circular for magic loop or Addi Flexiflips.
New skills include, but are not limited to, pattern reading, knitting small circumferences in the round, i-cord, and various increases and decreases. We will also be learning some simple seaming techniques for the small amount of seaming this project requires (it is mostly seamless). For those interested in making the Here we Gnome Again pattern, we can discuss a few of the extra techniques you find in that pattern.
