Join us as we work through a Little Cotton Rabbits knitted stuffed animal from cast on through finishing.

If you've wanted to tackle one of these adorable stuffed animals but were intimidated by all the pieces, let's work through it together!

Participants should be very comfortable with various cast ons, knitting, purling and directional increases and decreases. The class will mainly be focused on the finishing work (seaming, attaching limbs, embroidering facial features) and there will be knitting both during class and as homework between classes. Willingness to swatch is a must!
