Bobbin is a little grey donkey; a quick knitting project if you have a few evenings free.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the tail which is an i-cord tube knitted on two double pointed needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colour at the end of a row (knit stripes), knit i-cord and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The donkey is 19cm tall (when standing from tips of toes to tops of ears), when sitting he is about 15cm tall.
