These 3 chaps are hanging out at Babes in the Wool along with quite a few other similar looking friends. I created them in a variety of chunky yarns (James C Brett, King Cole) and added a little tinsel and fluffy yarn too.
Hamish stands at around 18" tall and is weighted so he could be used as a doorstop. He would also be happy sitting underneath a Christmas tree or standing on a hearth. He really is quite charming and fairly easy to do. The trickiest part is his beard which is worked in crochet fur stitch, which will need a little patience and some practise to complete. A bell for the top of his hat completes his look.
The crochet pattern is available from Babes in the Wool, 113 Newland Avenue, Hull.
