When I was in the sixth grade, I took a beginning knitting class. We learned to make a hat and mine turned out to be a total disaster. I just recently decided to try knitting again and had to refresh my memory by reading every How To Instructable I could find.
For many pieces of the farm, I have documented the pattern I created. The patterns are very, very basic. I know that I will make every vetran knitter cringe and I offer an apology at the get-go, but like I said, I am just learning. All you will need to know for these patterns is how to do the knit stitch, the purl stitch, cast on and cast off. Also, I can make a crochet chain, which is the extent of my abilities there. Some of the flowers have a crochet chain included.
Mosbey's Farm is in honor of my new home state, Wisconsin. Mosbey is a dairy cow from a local farm. I should add, a rather amazing dairy cow. Check out his story on the last step.
Thank you for looking.
Step 1: THE BARN:
The barn was made with the box from bottled beer. I liked that it already had the barn shape to it and only needed a little modification. The roof is from box cardboard and the rooster's nest is a butter box. I added windows and a hayloft to finish the barn.
The yarn I used is cranberry from Vanna's Choice, which is perfect for the typical Wisconsin Farm.
