I love whales and I know lots of kids who love whales too. I designed this Whale pattern to look most like the flat headed sperm whale. He is 8” long from his cheeky grin to his impressive tail.
For an INTERMEDIATE knitter because there are some right and left leaning increases, a provisional cast on, a few short rows and one tricky stitch. There are only two short sewn seams in this pattern.
