It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I’mloving this pair and they’re doing an excellent job of adding a festive feel to the shop counter.  I do have a confession though…..my friends Noreen and Liz made them for me along with the Tinsel Owl below.  Big thanks to both of them, they are without a doubt, skilled when it comes to making knitted toys.

The snowmen are made using Sirdar Snowflake (dk for the smaller of the two, chunky for the larger) and Stylecraft Special DK for the accessories  The biggest chap stands approximately 11 inches tall whilst the shorter one is about 8 inches high.

The design has been created by Sue Jobson for Sirdar, pattern 4513 and the girls assure me they’re a fairly straightforward knit.  As with all toys, it can be easier to sew as you go, otherwise the task can seem a little daunting if you leave it all to the end.

Loving the addition of the red on the robin’s breast, much more appropriate me thinks 💡

Here’s the afore mentioned owl, he’s a rather big boy and is the largest size on the pattern.  He still only took the one ball of King Cole Tinsel and he’s proving even more popular than the hedgehog at the moment.

Owls

As you can see it’s pattern 9022 I think they’d make a lovely little present for someone, especially as owls are so popular at the moment.  I think I’d rather like a little white Snowy Owl perched on our Christmas Tree.

Happy knitting!
