Description from designer:
This quintet of cute characters couldn’t be quicker or easier to make from scraps of yarn and stuffing. They are knitted in garter stitch (no increases or decreases) and with one nifty stitch they stand up by themselves, like magic!

Moreover, children can join in the knitting. The smallest size only has 12 stitches and 19 rows and they are all worked on 4mm (No 8, USA 6) knitting needles - perfect for beginner knitters, grown-ups included. Even the arms are easy-peasy, just one cast on/cast off piece, which is threaded through the body.

There are instructions for five sizes ranging from 4.5cm (1¾ in) to 7.5cm (3in) in height. You can knit them all year round, providing lots of amusing treats for the 31st of October.
