Top knit tip

Miffy is worked from the centre-out, which means that when you cast on for her Head, you will be working it from the top down. Usual cast-on methods involving a slip knot can create a hard lump in the centre of your work, which could create an unsightly bump on the peak of Miffy’s Head. To avoid this and to make your beginning stitches as neat as possible, you could use the invisible circular cast-on instead.
