Meet the Bumblie. He is a character from the 1950’s, one of three aliens that came to earth to watch how human children played.

I was told by my mum, that thunder was caused by Bumblies up in Bumblie land running at each other full speed and banging tummies together - I am sure she would not have lied to me cough

Sitting 5 inches high, this fun little character is knitted flat on 3mm needles.
He is a very quick and easy knit. The pattern is clearly written and includes photos to help you along the way.
