Kirsten Loves Puffins

One of our amazing teachers, Kirsten Bedigan (she'll be teaching Drop Spindling for Beginners and Introduction to Fair Isle for us at the retreat) has released an adorable knitting pattern that is PERFECT for the retreat.

There is something very endearing about Puffins, especially baby Puffins, or Pufflings as they are known. This knitted Puffin is worked in separate sections, either flat, in the round or by picking up stitches. The separate sections (body, head, feet/legs, wings, patches and beak) are all sewn together afterwards.

Beak has colour work, but can be knitted in one colour.

All instructions (including the colour work section) are written, with a supplementary chart for the beak if preferred.

AND!!!! Stayed tuned for a couple other puffin inspired patterns which will be debuted at the retreat! Are you excited? We sure are!

We're thrilled that Kirsten is one of our teachers and that she'll be having a booth at the Vendor Market as well. If you haven't signed up for the retreat yet, go sign up here now! Happy Knitting!
