Charlotte, Mystery KAL

I spend a lot of time in my group Stana's critters etc on Ravelry.
It is the place where I post the calls for test knitting for my newest knitting patterns.
Also it is a place where I have met many wonderful and likeminded knitters.
And every once in a while I offer Toy Mystery KAL (KAL stands for Knit a-long).

Starting October 3rd 2015 I have new mystery KAL for Charlotte. After completing the pattern which will be released in 3 clues you will have your own Charlotte.

The link to access the pattern is here:

Knitting Pattern for Mirabel, the fish

Mirabel, is a fish. Knitted in the round at first, to form the head, then continued flat to work on body and tail. The fins are knitted separately and sewn on, or you can pick up the stitches and knit the fins directly.

The two sizes are created by using either single or double held yarn. And then, you add the fabric for the inside, and zipper and create a wonderful pencil, coin, or notion case.

The pattern is available to purchase in my store on Ravelry or by clicking on this button:
