|Knitting stage: completed!|
And the dreaded backwards loop cast-on technique? Yeah, actually very simple! I was imagining something way more complex.
Here's what the underside looks like - there's a small knitted flap to be sewn closed after felting and stuffing are completed.
The most tedious part of this project has been weaving in the three ends per leg after completing the knitting stage. If I had known how long a tail to leave for crocheting the legs onto the body, I would have only had one end per tail. I would recommend leaving a long tail when you cast on each leg so that you can avoid so many loose ends!
Felting and finished product coming soon to a blog near you!
