Very good. I'm an avid knitters and this is the first time I've used your products but it's a shame you dont do paper patterns as not every one has the means to down load. Me included. I wrote the patter down.
Caterpillar draught excluder
I haven’t started this yet as am finishing another project. I am looking for something new and fun to do and this looks like it will fit the bill.
Items I have ordered have arrived promptly, they are packaged well. Beautiful wool and patterns.
My favourite pattern!
I’ve knitted this twice now, one for me and one as a present. Any double knit wool works, and any colours too. I’d say I used 15-20g of wool for each colour. It’s a very simple pattern and one that a fairly new knitter could make easily. I couldn’t get the yarn to sit right to make the ‘ball’ for the individual colours, so I just did a running stitch in end row of each colour and pulled it as tight as I could; I think it looks just as good really. I’ve knitted both of mine for use as a draught excluder, but I would think a young child would love it, if you just used some spare wool to replace the buttons for the eyes, which I actually did for one of mine so my brother’s dog didn’t chew or swallow it!
