This project is suitable for older children, too, as long as they are old enough to use a (fairly dull) plastic yarn needle.
Step 1: Materials
1. Knifty Knitter set of knitting looms.
These come in 4 sizes, for this project I am using the smallest loom (the blue one) but you can use any size. I have made larger eyeballs using the green loom.
2. Yarn- I am using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice. If you are using one of the larger looms you will want to either use thicker yarn (bulky weight) or use a double strand of worsted weight.
1 skein of white yarn
1 skein of black yarn (you won't use very much black so if you have some leftover from another project that is perfect)
1 skein of blue yarn (or brown or green, whatever eye color you want to make)
1 small skein of red yarn or red embroidery floss, I used Sugar 'n' Cream crochet yarn.
4. Poly fiberfill stuffing
Step 2: Getting started
The knitting process follows the basic Knifty Knitter instructions, I'm assuming if you own the looms you have used them before and know the basics.
Cast on with the white yarn and begin to knit a tube.
Knit until the white tube is about 5 inches* long.
*5 inch measurement pertains to using the smallest loom. If you are using a larger size loom, these length measurements will be larger.
