These horns were quickly invented when my daughter needed a Halloween costume, for tomorrow. They only took a few hours to knit up. They measure 10cm/4” high and 13cm/5” around.

Gauge isn’t critical here, though they are knitted at a tighter than usual gauge - as with all stuffed toys - so that the stuffing doesn’t show through the fabric.

The pattern uses short rows: I’ve used the usual wrap & turn terminology - and have included a video link for the technique, but feel free to substitute alternative short row methods, eg. German short rows.

4Nov13: Often on patterns I find the caveat that knitters may not sell items made with the pattern. After a lot of thought and research I have decided that I don’t agree with this statement. I don’t believe that the designer has any rights over the finished product, so, if you’re handknitting and you want to sell items made from my patterns - Best of Luck, and Go For It! I think handknitting for a living must be quite a challenge, so you need all the luck I can give you. Of course, my rights DO cover the patterns themselves, so you mustn’t copy or distribute them.
