A downloadable knitting pattern for chunky “bubble writing” numbers which can be propped on a shelf or mantelpiece, or threaded with a ribbon or string to hang them up. They can also be knit flat in cotton as a washcloth, or appliqued onto fabric or mounted in a frame. Great for marking a birthday or a wedding or anniversary date, or how about a countdown advent calendar?Each knitted number is composed of an identical front and back, which are then sewn together around the edges and stuffed to form a delightfully squishy, tactile “bubble” number. Or you can just knit a single layer for a washcloth or banner, or to applique it to a sweater or frame it for the wall.Some numbers are simpler than others, but once you get the idea of how the patterns work you can usually get one side knitted during an hour’s TV show!This pattern comprises the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. 9 is the same as 6, just turned upside down. There is also a simple straight alternative for number 1.SPECIFICATIONS:*TO MAKE A STUFFED ORNAMENT*Approximate height: 14cm / 5.25”Yarn: DK wool (around 16-20g / 40-50yds per number)Needles: 2.75mm / US 2 / UK 12Stuffing: varies considerably but generally wool stuffing will be slightly fewer grams than yarn, and even less for polyester stuffingKnit the pattern twice, sew together around the edges and stuff to form a delightfully squishy, tactile three-dimensional letter or symbol. Optionally add a ribbon to make a hanging ornament.*TO MAKE A CUSHION*Approximate height: 34cm / 13.5”Yarn: Wool and the Gang Heal the Wool or other super-bulky wool (around 250-350g / 109-152yds)Needles: 10.00mm / US 15 / UK 000Stuffing: around 100-150g wool stuffing (or less for polyester stuffing)Knit and stuff as above*TO MAKE A WASHCLOTH*Approximate height: 19cm / 7.5”Yarn: Worsted/Aran cotton (around 15-25g / 27-45yds)Needles: 4.5mm / US 7 / UK 7Knit 1 in cotton (or linen or hemp) and crochet a 20 stitch single chain crochet hanging loop.CUSTOMISE IT:This is a highly customisable pattern. Make your number any size you like, from super-bulky to lace weight yarn. Vary the colours and patterns, use different stitches – the possibilities are endless!For other yarns, if you are making a stuffed ornament or cushion, I simply suggest that you go down a needle size or two from that recommended for your yarn, to create a nice dense fabric and stop the stuffing showing through.Number of pages: 16Language: English onlyTime required: 45 mins to 2 hours per single knitted number (2 to 5 hours for a stuffed number)Difficulty: EasyRELATED PRODUCTS:- My "Bubble Writing" Knit Alphabet pattern: https://www.etsy.com/wombleknits/listing/762189329- Individual letter patterns: https://www.etsy.com/uk/wombleknits/listing/1008655081- Colour printed patterns posted out to you: https://www.etsy.com/shop/wombleknits/?section_id=36854029- Letters or numbers knitted for you: https://www.etsy.com/wombleknits/listing/737057617- Sets of numbers knitted for you: https://www.etsy.com/wombleknits/listing/1548765344PLEASE NOTE: this is a digital PDF DOWNLOAD.
