Miniature Knitting Tips/Hints

  • Knitting basket - Wind colored thread over small balls of clay, secure with glue.  For the excessively patient, use real yarn and  and unwind each "ply" of lightweight baby yarn or crewel yard and wrap the clay ball using only 1 ply. Embroidery thread in a non-shiny finish  resembles yarn.  Place the yarn balls in a wood bowl or a basket. Add a couple of long pins which have been painted to resemble knitting needles. Add a reduced photocopy of your knitting pattern...and there you have it!! To add a little more realism:  Drape loose end of yarn over edge of basket & in other "natural" positions. Apply a little glue to your fingers and pull the yarn end through them...then the yard end is positioned, it'll stay put.  Knit a few rows onto the "needles"! Or cheat and use a piece of woven material threaded onto the needles.
