I have been doing some more work but not sharing it here… so… here goes…
I like the bird more than the Monkey but still have only made these as gifts, so far… and on the plus side, it is much easier and faster to make.
I chose to add wire so that it was possible to alter the legs and the position of the head if one wanted.
Bending the wire and tugging it inside the head similar to the legs.
The recipe I used is in danish: http://masjasblog.dk/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/haeklet-kay-bojesen-sangfugl-.pdf
So I just finished this one: Oh Land – lettere end du tror. Designed by Nanna Øland for Sandnes Garn.
I am such a rebel and tend to use other yarn then the one in the patterns, so I used 2 x Sandnes Garn – Silk Mohair – Lilla, as I found a place that would sell the pattern with 2 balls of yarn instead of the 6 that should be used.
I then use those 2 with, 3 balls of cheap glimmer yarn (2 gold and one purble) I found in Netto (supermarket in denmark).
Took some time and maneuvering to assemble, it was a bit tricky but worked out fine.
Found the pattern at a danish website and a guide to help assemble here.
I used the ‘Call a friend’ option a few times during my first time knitting a sweater…
I can not wear anything in the Icelandic wool (Létt-Lopi), so I replaced it with Drops Air Yarn.
I used the ‘Magic Loop’ technique to knit both sleeves at once.
And I added width in the chest area to fit me.
Just finished these…
Made these for a co-worker.
The pattern I found in danish on this website.
