Last Christmas I use left over scraps of yarn to knit Lovely Youngest a Christmas fairy for a bit of a joke. However I was rather pleased with her and decided to write up the pattern. But having nearly finished, I got distracted and forgot about it – Yes, I know, you’ve heard that before.
Fast forward to a week ago when I was nearing the end of my current knitting project and decided to start writing up the pattern.
As I headed to my pattern folder, I happened upon several half written patterns. Looking through them I noticed that Tilda the Christmas Fairy only needed a few finishing touches.
So not only here is Tilda the Christmas Fairy knitted from scraps of double knitting. (The biggest scrap was about 20g of red for the body, legs and arms. The rest much smaller scraps and the dress and berries is a different red yarn.)
… here’s the pattern.
And while I’m here I’ll confess the kitting one Santa sack a day I mention in my last month’s Scrap Happy has got rather abandoned. Blame the sketching.
