What you need to know

Aine Marriot’s colourful fellow is a quick and easy knit!

Beamed in from Planet Knitz, here’s a cosmic alien with dazzling diamond patches and an expression that’s as quirky as his body! The best way to work the patterned section is by using the Fair Isle technique, stranding both yarns along the back to knit or purl as needed, but if you’ve not tried this technique before, a small toy makes the ideal first project.

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
