Frankenstein and Mummy
FRANKENSTEIN AND MUMMY TOY DOLL KNITTING PATTERNS
It’s Frankenstein versus the mummy … a spooky pair of Halloween knits!
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making Frankenstein and the mummy, 12 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 know how to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes (change colour at the end of a row) and sew seams. Frankenstein’s body incorporates Fair Isle (stranded) colourwork, and his hair uses a picot cast on (step by step instructions for this are included in the pattern). The mummy is wrapped in a knitted bandage, but you could use real bandage strips or ribbon instead if you wish.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
- Double knitting yarns (DK or light worsted weight); less than 30g in each colour
- Toy filling
- Buttons to decorate Frankenstein
