Photo is taken hung on already existing hooks, I looks better when the top strip is spread out properly
5.00 mm hook
4.5 mm needles OR 4.5 mm hook
Less than 100 grams of dark purple
Less than 50 grams of red, blue and yellow
A small amount of black for sewing on the eyes.
9 beads to add weight to your motif chains.
6 small white buttons
In Dark purple, co 13 stitches. Knit in garter (knit every stitch) till it reaches 60 cms and finish off.
You could also crochet this strip instead, I just like to have some mindless knitting for when I am reading.
For a crocheted strip take a 4.5 mm hook and with the purple yarn chain 11.
R1 sc in second loop from the hook and sc across. (10 stitches)
Continue in sc until the strip reaches 60 cms and finish off.
Slip stitch into one corner of your strip and make a chain 70 cms long and finish it off, tying on one of your beads.
Along the same edge, leave approx 6.5 cms then slip stitch into the fabric again, this time making your chain 35 cms long. Finish off and add a bead.
Continue in this fashion until you have 9 chains, with the last one being made in the opposite corner to the one you started with.
