Black Spider for the Yellow Loom

Knifty Knitter Black Spider
1. Body: Knit 25 rows in the round as you would for a hat, using 2 strands of yarn (leave a long tail on the winding peg to use in sewing up the bottom of the spider body).
2. Take the knit off the loom as you would a hat (take a 25 inch piece of yarn and thread it through top and bottom to remove from loom). Put stuffing in while still on the loom.
3. Legs: Make 8. Using the yellow loom, knit back and forth on 8 pegs for 47 rows and leave a long piece of yarn on the winding peg to sew up the legs. Take each leg off the loom as you would a hat. Fold legs horizontally and sew up
4. Take each leg, fold in half, then whip stitch for a fold or bend in the leg. Turn spider over and sew four legs on each side.
5. Hot glue two large wiggly eyes on top of spider near the front. (Use the size eyes you like, spiders have small eyes, but larger eyes show up better)
6. Note from Clella: This spider would be way cute if you used one strand of fun fur to make it hairy. Sit Samuel in the pumpkin patch of knitted pumpkins from our web-site here at Provo Craft. Have a Happy Halloween!
