Looking out across a loch, surrounded by mountains is a little croft house with a red roof. This knitting pattern was inspired by that house which is located on the Applecross Peninsular, West Coast of Scotland. Make this knitted croft house as a child’s toy or add extra weight and use as a bookend.

The pattern prints out over 7 pages and includes detailed instructions throughout to complete this project.
