Itchy’s Game October 5, 2012

Alligator Itchy is his name
He wants to share with you his little game

To play, Itchy will first hide in a pile of leaves
He’ll pretend to get lost and make you believe

Then when you are not aware
He’ll pop out and give you quite a scare

Depending if he’s hungry or full
He might just nudge you or turn you into wool

He is now ready to play with his owner, Peach 
Does he fail or does he succeed?



Pattern: KnitWit by Katie Boyette 

*I noticed some errors in the pattern when the stitches didn’t quite add up. The changes I made to the pattern are shown below in bold.



Top of Head
Row 26: P9, p2tog, p2, p2tog, p9 (22 sts)
Row 27: K8, k2tog, k2, ssk, k8 (20 sts)
Row 28: P7, p2tog, p2, p2tog, p7 (18 sts)
Row 29: K6, k2tog, k2, ssk, k6 (16 sts)

With wrong sides held together, join jaws and begin body:

This lovely Ballerina is ready to dance, twirl, and spin her way to cyclingrandma‘s front door!

Thank you again to everyone who participated in my first giveaway!

So what will cyclingrandma be doing with this ballerina? I had a chance to chat with her via e-mail and this was her response: “I can’t wait to give it to my granddaughter, Meira who turns 1 year old in September. Not sure she’ll be ready for it then so might wait a few more months before giving it to her“.

Hope your granddaughter will soon enjoy having an afternoon tea with this knitted doll!!
