Witchhazel is not a witch to conform, she is a modern witch with a sense more of fun and adventure than witchcraft, however, come Halloween, she returns to her coven to do all the stuff witches do on Halloween.

Yes she is flying! With the help of a little magic - fishing line to tell the truth - this little witch hangs perfectly balanced from windows, tree branches or where ever you want to show her off.
She can also be used as a shelf sitter or even a branch sitter if making the broom does not appeal to you – although there are full instructions for making it.

She has her ‘familiar’- Scaredy Cat – comes with her on high speed trips on the broom, however, he has a hard job staying on the back upright with speed freak Witchhazel at the helm. The instructions for making him are also included in the pattern.

When finished, she is 15 inches standing and 11 inches sitting
She is knitted flat on 3 and 4mm needles using DK or equivalent yarns throughout, and finished off with little personal touches like beads, old brooches or earrings.
