This is a video of Waldorf Handwork Teachers demonstrating how to cast on and knit to the a 1st grade class using a song/rhyme. Cast on: "In through the front door run around the back peak through the window, let go, Jack grows and jumps on the stack." Knitting: "In through the front door run around back, peak through the window and off jumps Jack!"

Waldorf ~ 1st grade ~ Handwork ~ Rainbow Ball ~ Case on 14 stitches. Knit 3 ribs/6 rows per color in garter stitch. Put yarn needle through the top and pull. This will gather it. Sew it up, stuff it and put a bell in the middle.
