Pattern 10/12: Rooster
This is an automated post. A new pattern will be added every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from July 7 to Aug 2 and they will be available until I return on Aug 9. I will also be able to answer comments and questions then.
A few notes: I suggest making the head last, so you can add ears, eyes, etc as you go. I places the eyes into the 12th and 16th stitches of the 7th row. I also weighed the bottom of the body with plastic pellets to keep them standing up, but you may want something heavier (like a pebble or magnet).
Red Heart Soft Yarn in Chocolate, Wine, and Gold (The Red Heart Soft line doesn’t have a good yellow, so I used Red Heart Classic in Gold. There is a textural difference, but the change is not visually apparent.)
