This is my first time writing my own design but as someone asked if there was a pattern to the gonks I posted in pictures I thought I would give it a go:
50grams Ice yarn eyelash yarn (or similar brand)
3.25mm knitting needles
pair of 12mm safety eyes (or felt shapes)
12 mm safety nose (or felt shape)
darning needle for sewing.
Pattern (this can be done in either garter or stocking stitch )
Cast on 12 stitches
Work 8 rows garter or stocking stitch.
At the end of 8th row cast on 12 stitches and knit all stitches on needle,then cast on 12 stitches and knit(purl if st.st) all stitches on needle.
Work 40 rows in garter or stocking stitch.
Cast off, leaving a long end for sewing.
Fold in half and sew back edges together (fold purl side together if done in stocking stitch).
Sew base to bottom edge, making sure the back seam is centred on the base.
Turn right side out (this is the purl side for stocking stitch) and stuff firmly.
Decide where to place your eyes and nose and mark the places lightly with a pen.
If using safety eyes and nose insert them and fasten with washers, placing a little of the stuffing round the post first.
Sew the top edge ensuring the back seam is centred.
If using felt for the eyes and nose sew them on firmly.
Here is a diagram of how to sew the piece together. Just match the numbers and sew.
Should you find any mistakes or have a problem with the pattern feel free to pm me and I will answer as soon as I can.
