Christmas Felted Beanies arriving soon!
I've been designing these little guys . I'm really happy with the way that they turned out. My favourite is Rudolf, although he was also the hardest to design.
They are all knitted and then carefully hand felted before finishing details like eyes, hats, glasses etc. are added.
The 'secret Santa' was a last minute bit of fun. Both the elf and Santa do actually have bodies just like the snowman's but their oversize beards hide them completely when you see them from the front.
The beards are actually my favourite part. They are made using loop stitches and are felted so that the loops are firmly held.
Full details of the techniques used in the patterns such as the loop stitches will be included with the pattern along with bags of photos to keep everyone straight.
The patterns themselves have been written but are getting the final check over before they are published. They will be added to both the Etsy and DaWanda FunkyOrange stores within the next 2-3 days.
Initially they will be available in English. If there is enough demand French and German editions will also be published.
