This tutorial is not about a knitting technique. It is about a simple way to make a cute greeting card that you can gift to knitters and non-knitters on any occasion. Plus, it is a great way to use scraps of sock yarn that will be wasted otherwise.
The card features a knitting sheep. The artwork is a fun project of a young artist Sasha Shevchenko, who happens to be my daughter 🙂 You can see her professional art pieces right here.
If you look at the artwork, you won’t see any knitting, just a sheep looking at its tummy. The image changes when we place a tiny swatch in the sheep’s hooves – the sheep turns into a knitting sheep!
All we need to do to bring our card to life is to make a little piece of knitting and attach it to the printed artwork.
This card works well for any occasion. To specify the type of greetings, make an inscription at the bottom of the artwork – “Happy Holidays”, “Get Well Soon”, “Thinking of You” are just some possible options.
Now, that we know the outline of the card-making process, let’s make a knitted greeting card and send some love to our friends and family.
