Alex the Mouse Kit
Alex the Mouse by Ella Austin is the May project from A Year of Techniques. Featuring pinhole cast ons and stranded colourwork, this is an ideal challenge to anyone who has experience working small circumferences in the round. Get started with video tutorials on pinhole cast on and working the i-cord edging from our AYoT tutorial page.
