Jason is a kooky and colourful parrot with a great personality! Designed by our very own Val Pierce, especially for Cygnet Yarns, this feathered friend has been causing a stir in the LK office. Jason features lots of charming details, from his layered wings to fanned tail.
He’s a great make for anyone, plus the pattern features some top toy tips for helping you when knitting up Jason or any other toy.
Alternatively, why not put a smile on a young child’s face with these great bug-inspired backpacks. Benson, is in the design of a bumble bee whilst Marieta is a vibrant ladybird. The pattern is easily adaptable to make a variety of backpacks; why not create a spider with long, spindly legs, a stripy caterpillar or even a butterfly?
