Top knit tip

Stitch holders look like giant safety pins and you can use them to keep your stitches ‘live’ while you are working on a different section. Open up the holder and insert the bar into your stitches as if you were going to purl them, then slide them off your needle onto the holder. Later on, you’ll be able to knit these stitches straight from the holder.

Meet the designer

Nicola Valiji is a regular designer for Let's Knit Together – she first learned how to knit while making a Jean Greenhowe doll with help from her nan. If you enjoyed making this pattern, why not make these knitted cat toys? You can view more of Nicola's designs here.
