Workshop: Knit a Mini Dala Horse

Join Sue Flanders, co-author of Swedish Handknits to whip up a knit dala horse that could turn into a sweet toy or a cheerful garland. This afternoon long class for intermediate knitters (who are already proficient with knitting in the round on double pointed needles and increasing/decreasing) is a cozy way to practice shaping small knit items. After shaping and constructing their horse, students will even have the option to add embroidered embellishment or a woolly mane!

Students will have the option to knit a mini Dala horse on size 2 needles (the perfect size as an ornament or for creating a garland) or a larger toy Dala horse worked with the yarn held double on size 8 needles. Students will work on the shaping and construction of one horse in class. Suitable for intermediate knitters ages 18+. A $10 materials fee covers materials for a garland of mini horses or one larger toy horse.
