Ted's Friend

This is my friend, she loves pancakes, waffles, orange juice, jumping and my list goes on. I made her from wool and buttons. If you would like to make one like I did, here are the instructions.

You will need:
•             Wool (choose colours you want to make friend in)
•             Buttons x 3
•             Darning needle or crochet hook
•             knitting needles (size 4.5mm)
•             filling (e.g pillow stuffing)


1.Using wool and needles, cast on 16 stitches. Knit 62 rows, then cast off. (rows can vary.)

2.Now for the arms cast on 5 stitches, knit 16 rows, cast off, repeat process to get two  same size arms (vary depending on body)

3.Cast on 5 stitches, knit 30 rows, cast off. Repeat process to get two even legs (vary depending on arms and body)

4.Use darning needle/crochet hook to sew body up, folding body in half (length wise) sew three seams, before closing last seam stuff with filling. Place buttons on to make eyes and nose. Place arms and legs on to complete your special friend.
