The pattern is well thought out and detailed with lots of pics and info. I over stuffed so recommend not doing that! Add your own colors and make it special. Fun project and a lot of knitting!

Downloading the pattern was easy. I reached out to the seller about where to purchase the yarn and or substitutes and she got back to me right away. Haven’t started the project yet as I’m waiting the yarn. Can’t wait to get started.

Pattern was more difficult than I thought it would be but not giving up, I will try and make it again when I have more time to figure out how to do it.

Knitting patterns made by a colour addict
Wool, fabric, water colours, polymere clay – as long as I can remember colourful materials gave my creativity wings. Fortunately my parents supplied my brother and me with any creative material we wanted to use, who encouraged us, who tolerated the creative chaos we kids left everywhere. No surprise, my brother became a gifted carpenter, while I’m a grafic designer.
Knitting and crocheting has always fascinated me, but I never thought about doing it professionally – unless I created my first knitted animal. I got immediately hooked, and after designing the third one, I started to make notes and finally write patterns. I was lucky to find in DroemerKnaur a renowned german publishing house who wanted to publish my patterns. So far, two books about knitted animals and dolls and one about everything „cat“ has been published in German.
Additionally, I started translating my patterns into English, which is great fun, because my critters now conquer the sofas of the world! It always makes me smile when I find pictures of the animals worked after my patterns, and I can see how much love went into them. Lately I designed more and more accessoires like hats and shawls. I love it, but designing toys is more special – there is this magic moment when, after hours on end spent on designing and knitting, I apply the face and eyes and the animal reveals who he or she is.
Ah, one more thing: Never forget to give them a kiss once the face is done. It brings them to life!
I wish you happy and creative days,
