HUFFIN’ PUFFIN TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
Puffins are pretty amazing, they can flap their wings up to 400 times a minute and fly at 88km an hour, and they can dive 60 metres underwater to find food. Now that takes a lot of huff and puff!
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the puffin, 12 photos and diagrams, 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 on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. The puffin’s body incorporates intarsia colour-work.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); less than 50g in each colour
- Toy filling
- Beads for eyes
