MILTON THE MOLE TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
Did you know that moles are not blind, but they can’t see very well, so my Milton the Mole wears spectacles to help him see properly.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the mole and his spectacles, 7 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 on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colour at the end of a row (knit stripes) and sew seams. The pattern incorporates knitted bobbles for the fingers and toes, and instructions on how to knit a bobble are included in the pattern.

- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight) in black, pink and grey; less than 50g in each colour
- Toy filling
