The yarn for Miss P’s blanket hasn’t arrived yet and I finished my socks, so I needed a new project. I remembered I bought the yarn last year for these little toys. The pattern is from Esther Joy Knits – called Fowl Friends.
The first one was definitely a learning opportunity and there are some things I will change next time.
- Use a different cast on (I used a long tail cast on, but I think a cable one would be better).
- I would knit the overall straps after I had stuff the doll and stitched the arms and legs.
I am knitting the duck now, each one takes about 6 hours from start to finish.
