Buttercup is a woodland sprite and she will bring some fairy magic to your home! Her little toadstool seat also makes a handy pincushion.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. The skirt incorporates a three-needle join, and instructions with photos on how to do this are included in the pattern.

FINISHED SIZE: The fairy is approximately 26cm tall (including the hat), and the toadstool is 9cm tall.
