East to follow pattern ideal for christmas presents
I have made toys before, including a Deradog, successfully. I wish I could claim a good result with the puffin. It looks very odd. I followed the pattern, only changing the size of the hook to a 3.5 as I found the yarn rather thin. There is just something wrong about the head, the beak could have been bigger, generally it is not great! I would not recommend it. I suggest that small amounts of the colours are supplied as only tiny quantities of the yellow and grey are needed, and not much orange. The extras, stuffing and weighted beads cost quite a bit and are not supplied so the whole thing cost nearly £20.
Haven't made it yet but very clear instructions.
Isn't he just the cutest ! A fab gift to make for a penguin mad neighbor Will be using a large tin of veg inside it
Very easy to understand and follow, thanks
