Quick Knits: Character Pencil Toppers

The basic pattern for the pencil toppers is the girl in the orange dress which is a free pattern on the Love Knitting website by Dollytime.  You can find the pattern here:

I didn’t follow the pattern to the letter, but mainly used it for the dimensions.
For instance, I thought the arms looked better braided than twisted. I made the others as I went along.

The pirate’s head scarf and frilly shirt front are knitted, whereas the little red riding hood hood is a piece of felt sewn up.
I made Elsa’s diadem by sewing some silver sequins on her head, and braided her hair in a fishtail.
I used some small rings (normally used to make jewellery) for the glasses of the old lady and pearl beads for the necklace. I used the same rings as the glasses for the pirate’s earrings.

You can buy these toppers from TheFrogInTheCraft Etsy shop.

I will be making more toppers very soon and would love to get suggestions for which characters to make next. So go ahead and comment!! 🙂
