Comments

  1. Easy to make but I think there are discrepancies in the pattern, or is it just me??

    • Is this the complete pattern please? I am a bit lost after the 10 rows in Navy,then says to join in flesh colour upper body. Is there a part missing please?

  2. Isn’t this essentially Jean Greenhowe’s design?

  3. Joan Turner says:

    Like this one. Will knit him up soon. Thankyou.

  4. OOPS!!!!!I HAVE SOLVED THE PROBLEM AS TO HOW TO PRINT IT
    JUST HAD A SENIOR MOMENT
    JEAN
