This 26" Colors "Count"erpillar will be a friendly aid in reinforcing skills in color and number recognition, and numerical order and values, as preschoolers place the rings onto the lacing cord to complete this fun learning toy they could then play with. Knit with #4-worsted weight yarn of many colors, their small hands will love the soft, large, easy-to-grip rings, as they use their eye-hand-coordination and tactile skills to lace them and count the beads. They'll be exercising all kinds of skills, but they'll just think they're having fun!!! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, Purl, Increase, Decrease, Cast-on, Bind-off GAUGE Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches. SUGGESTED YARN 845 yards of Worsted weight
