BERTIE ROOSTER TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
Bertie Rooster is a proud father, with his little chick Jeeves and an egg to look after. This knitting pattern includes the instructions to knit Bertie and his family.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the rooster, chick and egg, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. The pattern incorporates Fair-Isle (or stranded) colour-work to make the rooster and egg. Bertie’s legs are strengthened with wire so that he can stand up, but you can make your rooster with floppy legs if you prefer.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 4mm knitting needles (US 6)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight) in grey, white, red and yellow
- Toy filling
- Beads for eyes
