Korknisse



I have loved these Korknisse since I found the pattern. I've had three corks in my knitting drawer since last winter for this project. This is an EXTREMELY fast project, and they only get cuter the more you knit.

I used size 2.5 (3mm) knitting needles and scraps of worsted weight yarn. For the first (pink) buddy, I kept the tension a bit too tight. The fit on the cork was better when I knit at a more natural tension. (I'm a bit used to stuffed animals where you want a tight gauge!) I really like when they peak out with a tiny little face.

I finished three in an afternoon. Now I just need to save up more corks!


For scale... see how tiny the sweater is!
