skacel is proud to introduce an ingenious new set of patterns for use with skacel sock yarns. These patterns are the inspired creation of Cid Hanscom, of Cid Hanscom Designs. They are inspired by and fashioned after balloon tied animals that youâ€™d find in a circus or at a childâ€™s birthday party. These amazing little creatures are knit in the round, with specific increases and decreases that allow them to be tied (after stuffing) into their respective species, be it animal, insect, or flower. The patterns are sold as a set, in a handy, clear vinyl wallet that allows the pattern to be visible and yet still protected. There are patterns for 10 creatures with clear and concise instructions on knitting, stuffing, and tying the wee beasties.
