It’s spring break here in Arkansas, so I’ve got a super-short KnitBits for you this week as I get ready to go out on a little hike with my family.
If you need one more quick Easter project to make, or plan to spend some of the weekend teaching a child how to knit, here’s how you make a bunny from a square of Garter Stitch. It’s a perfect first project and a way to keep that first wonky swatch that you’ll actually enjoy looking at. This roundup of square bunny patterns is from BeesDIY.
One reason so many people love knitting in the round is because there aren’t seams to sew up at the end, but the Fringe Association makes a good argument for why you might still want to knit your sleeves flat, even on a top-down sweater worked in the round. The short answer to why is because it’s easier than knitting a small circumference in the round and it adds structure to the sleeves; click through for the how you actually do it.
Finally, OK, this one is crochet, but it’s still awesome. Meet Yolanda Soto-Lopez, a 55-year-old crocheting abuela and YouTube sensation in the crochet crowd. She’s making six figures on her tutorial videos, which can take up to 30 hours to shoot, and she’s racked up more than 70 million page views. Amazing.
