The most often requested item in our post bag is for a donkey, to complete the Christmas Crib in our Christmas Special booklet. Well, here he is! And the pattern couldn’t be simpler, there are no complicated gussets or awkward pieces to fit together. The body, neck and head are worked in one piece and the legs are stiffened with plastic drinking straws so that Little Donkey stands up unsupported.

Yarn Requirements: 30g (1oz) of grey, plus oddments of cream, dark grey, and black
