I wanted to knit something a bit quirky and I think I have achieved that! This is what would happen if you squashed a rat in the middle of your book. The body is flat and the head is thicker so it can stick out of the top of your book.
I think these would be great for something a bit unusual for a fete or market.
The tongue sticking out is my son's idea.
The blood oozing out from his side is optional.
It is knitted on 2 needles. Use 8 ply (DK) yarn for your hardback books and 4 ply (fingering) for your paperbacks (makes it thinner and smaller) A great project for a beginner. It is about 15 cm (6") long in the 4 ply and 17cm (7") long for the 8 ply (not including tail for either).
I do not allow the copying of my patterns of any type but I do allow the selling of the finished goods on Etsy or anywhere else.
An email with a link to the pattern will be sent to the email address you have registered with Etsy 1-5 minutes after the payment has been confirmed. Contact me ASAP if you would like it sent to a different email address or you do not receive the email within 10 minutes or you can not access the file. Check your spam folder first just in case.
Although every care has been made to type up my patterns correctly there may be a typo. If you find any or are having trouble with any part of the pattern please let me know. I am here to help.
