The Waldorf 2nd Grade Horse

Guest Blogging today is my daughter Nora. She is a second grader at the Richmond Waldorf School and has just finished knitting a horse in her handwork class. I'll let her tell you all about it!





Pattern: Ms. Noelle told me how to make the horse.
Needles: US 8s
Yarn: The yarn only broke once. I spit spliced it.
Notes: I learned decreases. You knit two stitches together. Ms. Noelle knit the ears. The horse was fun and easy.

Excellent job, Nora! I'm way older than you, and I'm pretty sure I could not make that.
