Woodland Animal Patterns ~ Available now & on sale!

 

Hi, Knitters,
Today I have three new fall toy patterns for you. All three patterns are priced at an introductory sale price for one week starting today. The patterns will normally be set at $6.00 per pattern but I am offering each at $4.50 until September 15th, 2015. No code is necessary to get the discount.




I am super proud of all three of these delightful patterns which are all worked seamlessly from the bottom up with the exception of stitching on the fox and squirrel's heads to the bodies. Everything else is picked up or worked in one piece. The hedgehog is completely seamless. 

There are new and unusual construction techniques for each toy which are pretty innovative if I do say so myself. I hope you enjoy these three as much as I do.


Here is some information for Hedgie that you might like to know:

The pattern for Hedgie is on sale for one week for $4.50. On September 15th, 2015, the pattern will return to its original price of $6.00. No code is necessary.
The little hedgehog has a unique and new seamless construction that starts at the bottom of the white tummy section. The tummy and face are knit flat and then the brown body is picked up and worked from there.
Hedgie is the perfect size to stick in a child’s pocket or to set on a hedgehog-loving person’s office desk.
Hedgie is part of a woodland animal trio which includes the Woodland Foxand the Squirrel and Acorns patterns.
The pattern is part of the Alana Dakos’ Never Not Knitting Press(NNKPress) printed pattern line which is available in local yarn shops everywhere.
It is a fun and quick knit!




The texture stitch is the same one I have used on other toys you may have seen. I have a YouTube video tutorial that shows how to do it. You can watch right here! 


Here is some information you might like to know about the Squirrel and Acorns pattern:

The pattern for the Squirrel and Acorns is on sale for one week. The price is set at $4.50 and on September 15th, 2015, the price will return to the original price of $6.00. No code is necessary.
The Squirrel and Acorns toy is worked from the bottom up seamlessly with the exception of attaching the head to the body. The rest of the parts of the toy, including limbs, ears and pocket, are picked up and knit on.
The squirrel’s tummy pocket is the most fun and unique aspect of the toy. To fill the pocket I have included the pattern for the sweet little acorns. The pocket holds up to 5 acorns.
The squirrel is worked in Quince & Co. Owl and Lark. The acorns are worked in tiny bits of O-Wool Balance. All are worsted weight yarns.
The Squirrel and Acorns pattern is part of Alana Dakos’ Never Not Knitting Press (NNKPress) printed pattern line which is sold in local yarn shops everywhere.
The Squirrel and Acorns pattern is part of a trio of Woodland Animals that inlcudes Hedgie, a tiny hedgehog, and a Woodland Fox.

I love how the hands fit right in the pockets.


The pocket will hold up to 5 little acorns, the pattern for the acorns is included.


The bushy tail is not difficult but you could also attach 3 or 4 tiny pom-poms if you prefer.

 

The tiny acorns are knit out of O-Wool but any worsted weight yarn will work fine.


Here is some information you might like to know about the Woodland Fox:
