You only need three very basic tools to create with knitting from the simplest of projects to more complicated ones. And really, if you are in a pinch and find yourself with out a pair of scissors, any sharp object will saw through a piece of yarn when it needs cut....so it could be said that knitting can be done with only TWO tools.

Have you heard of or seen the Waldorf Dolls? They are so cute! The simplicity and handcrafted nature of their design make for a very desirable toy. The same is true for the Waldorf styled animals.
These Waldorf styled bunnies made for the perfect first knitting project. I love that each one takes it own shape and personality. This project is one that will impress everyone that you were able to create it with your own two hands after your very first knitting level lessons. They also make a great fast gift!
After learning the basics of casting on, the knit stitch, and the purl stitch, I walk you through step-by-step for this first project. The bunny project starts with knitting a simple square. The shaping all happens by stuffing and sewing up a few seams.
The ears knit up in a jiffy too! As you come to the end of knitting your first ear, there is an opportunity to learn your first decrease stitch by knitting two together (k2tog). After sewing up your cute little rabbit and attaching the ears, all that is left is making the fluffy tail.
This project is so rewarding that you will want to knit up a whole Bunny Rabbit Family! These knitting lessons and their accompanying projects that are created with the beginner in mind are available to you for FREE! The video tutorials walk you through each and every step, start to finish. The videos and patterns are accessible 24/7 at your convenience, for you to learn from as many times as you need.
