Waldorf Grade 4, the Norse Myths Block 1

Norse Myths Books Waldorf grade 4

We’ve been busy with the Norse Myths block, one of my favourite blocks! Pictured above are a few of the resources that have been used. We use the three-day rhythm, read the story on the first day, discuss and draw on the second day and write a short synopsis on the third day.

Projects:

We braided play dough when we read about Loki and Sif’s golden hair.

Will make Rune tablets from clay in our next block.

Cook a Nordic feast.

Draw Celtic knots, form drawings. Some ideas here.

Here’s quite a nice Pinterest page for the Norse Myths.

 

Below are a few examples of what Kye’s been reading and writing. If you click on the photo, it should enlarge:)

Test Knit for Everett the Elephant

Everett Side

It seems to be a week for test knits! I would love to have Everett’s pattern test knitted, if you’re keen to take part, you can sign up on my Ravelry group. He is quite a large fellow, wonderful to carry around and hug. Imagine a whole rainbow of Everette’s in different colours!! The possibilities are endless:) I hope to see you on the test knit thread.

Materials:
I used approx 150 grams Nurturing Fibres aran weight wool
4.5mm / US7 circular knitting needles
20 grams of Double Knitting yarn for the tusks
4mm circular needles for knitting the tusks

Skill:

Knitting in the round.

Size:
Using worsted yarn and 4.5mm needles you could expect Everett to measure:
Height (foot to top of head): 24cm /9.5 ”
Length (width at widest pointl):39.5cm / 15.5”

Start date: 29th of January
End date: 12th of February

Have a lovely weekend!

Halloween Ghost Knitting Pattern

Halloween Ghost1

Hello,

I have a new pattern to share with you today for a Halloween Ghost:) He’s a really fast knit, I’ve knitted him in the round with the Magic Loop technique and I used double knitting wool with size 4mm circular needles.

You could also add a loop to the top of his head so that he can hang from something or make a mobile.

Here’s the pattern:

Materials:

A few grams of double knitting wool

4mm circular needles

Black fleece for eyes and mouth

Felting needle

Sewing needle

Small amount of stuffing

Stitches:

Kfb: knit into the front and back of a stitch to increase.

Pattern:

Cast on 5 stitches and join for knitting in the round

Round 1: Knit

Round 2: Kfb into each stitch, (10 stitches)

Round 3: Knit

Round 4: Kfb into each stitch, (20 stitches)

Rounds 5-14: Knit

Round 15: (Knit1, kfb) repeat the brackets across the round, (30 stitches)

Rounds 16-20: Knit

Cast off loosely.

Finishing:

Sew in all ends

Push a small amount of stuffing into the top of your ghost to give the head some shape.

Needle felt the eyes and mouth on with a felting needle.

Happy knitting!
