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
