I'm so excited to share these little animals I knit to go along with The Mitten by Jan Brett! Elise and I both love them so much, we're having trouble deciding who gets to sleep with them at night... ;)
It was so much fun making this beloved story come to life. Elise knew exactly what I was up to - she even helped me choose the yarn!
Whenever she overheard me telling someone about my project, she would start sneezing like the bear does at the end of the story,"Aaaa-choooo!!!!"
The Mitten is one of those stories that is especially fun to retell with props...
...or with a friend!
For all of you knitters out there, I made most of the animals from patterns I found on Ravelry. The badger, mole, and mouse were my own inventions!
Here are a few pattern links, if you're feeling inspired to make your own set:
