may i present you: mr kiwi. he was fun to knit – the eyes and legs are attached directly to the body by picking up stitches. i liked that because you don’t have problems sewing them on. knitting these little animals you always have to sew millions of yarn ends though, but i guess there’s no way to avoid that 😉
he’ll be the mascot of our new zealand trip in oktober/november 2011.
pattern: kiwi by kahra grae
yarn: brown and white are scraps of lana grossa cool wool (100% merino), the legs are lana groassa meilenweit cotton sock yarn (cotton, wool, polyamid) and the blue on the eyes is old maiden aunt sock yarn.
needles: 3mm dpns
