What you need to know

It’s about time you gave Ronnie the Reindeer a friend to play with! Let us introduce you to the best-behaved Christmas guest ever... Derek is made with a fleecy yarn, which makes him perfect for cuddles. His facial features are all embroidered with yarn as opposed to buttons, so he will make an ideal companion for a small child. Let’s get started on your second Christmas Friends Collection character! Don't forget to share your knitalong progress over on the invite-only Facebook group - we're so excited to see your collections grow.
