Emily Explains: Knitting Surgery

Sometimes our knitting samples do not come out as we anticipate - something get lost in translation between desiging and knitting and you end up with this... You might not recognize it, but this is what our most recent Knitbits pattern, Malemute, looked like a few weeks before our photo shoot.
