Oliver Pig pattern by Susan B. Anderson. I love this pig!

Oliver Pig pattern by Susan B. Anderson

I usually don’t name my toy designs with a specific name for many reasons but mainly because I would prefer that the knitter or recipient come up with their own name that is meaningful to them. However, while I was creating this cute pig with a knit-in colorwork sweater, jeans and a separate button-up hooded jacket, I kept calling him Oliver Pig in my head. So when coming up with a project name I decided to just go with it. Oliver Pig seems to suit him well. But I encourage you to feel free to change the name to whatever suits you and yours!

How to Make a Knitting Spool – Natty Knitter. My son came home from school last week and announced that he could knit.

How to Make a Knitting Spool – Natty Knitter

His teacher had taught her first grade class spool knitting, which they can do while they listen to her read stories. It’s a brilliant idea, not only does it give the kids something to do with their hands, which cuts down the fidget factor, it also helps each kid to be self contained and not flicking the back of his friend’s head. In short, it aids concentration for individuals and improves the atmosphere in the classroom. Of course, they are not knitting with needles, no-one should arm a group of seven year olds with pointy sticks. Instead, they are learning spool knitting, otherwise known as bobbin knitting, corking or french knitting.

My son wanted to make a spool knitting bobbin at home, so we did. It’s super easy to make and even easier to use, so I thought I’d share that with you today. Owls Two Ways (crochet) pattern by Ana Clerc. This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download This is a pair of universal simple one-piece owl patterns.

Owls Two Ways (crochet) pattern by Ana Clerc

Using the yarn of your choice, owls are stitched with a needle or hook 2 sizes smaller than the yarn normally calls for. For example, I used worsted weight yarn and a size F hook for the brown owl and the same weight yarn and size 6 (4.0 mm) dpns for the gray one. Both owls share the same finishing instructions and are done in the round from the bottom up. In addition to yarn and needles or hook, you will need the following tools and materials: • Buttons OR safety eyes OR felt circles for eye centers • Felt circles to make eye circles • Small scrap of felt OR a small scrap of yarn to make a beak for your owl • Toy stuffing to fill owl AND a small bag of rice, beans, or poly-pellets to weight the bottom. • Needle and thread for sewing on beak and eyes • Yarn needle to close the top of the owl • Stitch marker to mark the first stitch of your rounds (I used a locking one for both.)
