Did you know that moles are not blind, but they can’t see very well, so my Milton the Mole wears spectacles to help him see properly.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting 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) and sew seams. The pattern incorporates knitted bobbles for the fingers and toes, and instructions on how to knit a bobble are included in the pattern.

FINISHED SIZE: The mole is approximately 16cm tall (when standing, from toes to the top of the head).
