Knit along with Susan B. Anderson as she shows you how to use double-pointed needles to shape three different heads: a baby elephant, an adorable bunny and a winsome hippo.

Add arms and legs, perky ears and tails and an embroidered face and your Wee Ones are ready to give, or keep for yourself! Along the way, you'll learn to master the wrap and turn technique to make short rows, create afterthought features, work top down and finish with the Kitchener stitch all great skills for future projects!
