We love yarnbombing projects that transform everyday objects into surprising characters. While we expected kids to love them, we were surprised how much these characters took adults out of their daily doldrums by adding a little fun to their lives too. Now you can help fill the world with whimsy and bring a smile to the faces in your neighborhood. This pattern includes instructions for a ridgeback or flat body. It also suggests how to adjust the pattern for extra small or large poles.

The pattern is worked from the top down. You’ll make two lips, then join them and continue working the body. The mouth, eyes, optional fangs and forked tongue are worked separately, then sewn on.

You knit the body as a flat rectangle, which you’ll then sew onto the pole. We recommend installing in broad daylight so people can tell you how much they love your work–because we guarantee they will!

Play around with colors and invent your own embellishments. Express your imagination!
