You are cleared for take off! This woolly helicopter has rotor blades that turn round on the top, and a tail rotor that spins round too. Lots of fun for budding pilots to play with!

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The finished helicopter is approximately 17cm long and 13cm tall.
