PDF knitting pattern for a collection of easy-knit, Springtime characters to decorate the house or garden.
One basic shape is used for all the characters and embellished to create the Easter Bunny, Chick, Spring Lamb & Easter Flower Basket.
Each character uses approx 30g (1 oz) DK yarn (or equivalent) in a main colour plus small oddments of other colours.
I have knitted my collection using UK size 3.75mm (US size 5) single point needles for the main pieces and 3.25 (US size 3) needles for all the other pieces. Each finished character measures approximately 5 inches (13 cms) across.
The characters illustrated have been knitted in DK yarn on UK size 4mm (US size 6) single point needles & measure approximately 5 inches (13 cms) across.
Stitches & techniques used: Knit & Purl sts; increasing & decreasing; working short rows (explained in the pattern); stitching up.
The pattern is in PDF format, on 11 pages, with instructions given row by row.
