SMALL POUFTuesday, October 09, 2012
Do y'all look at the the free pattern slips that are at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Jo Ann? I usually don't like the patterns that are on there, but this one caught my eye and it wasn't just cuz of the cute little girl in the pic haha.
It can be used for a decorative pillow, or a soft squishy ball. I like giving my kids unique toys and she loves it! Since the pattern is so basic, I teach in the video how to change yarn colors. Let me know if you decide to make one!
This video teaches you how to slip knot, cast on, knit, garter stitch, change colors, make stripes.
