This Ned is an extremely close relation to Snoozing Ned, who some of you may remember was available as a free pattern from my previous website.
Snowy has been knitted in white chunky weight, Alafoss Lopi using exactly the same pattern as Snoozing Ned.
The only difference with Snowy is that I have omitted using any felt and have simply knitted more pieces for his ears, wings and feet.
His eyes are now easy crochet circles and his beak is a small crochet chain with slip stitches worked around it.
I have used orange Alafoss Lett Lopi (a lighter, worsted weight yarn), for the smaller crochet circles within his eyes, as well as for his beak and chest patterning.
The chest patterns are simply strategically placed cross stitches.
He is filled with a pure wool toy filler and he is irresistibly soft and cuddly…
