How to knit another retro-chic Rudolf, the red-nosed ... cockerel ... Christmas ball ...

OK. I'll be honest this one was originally intended to be that famous old red-nosed reindeer who saved Christmas with his luminescent nose.

But you know how things don't always finish up how you'd envisaged? Well, by the time I got past Rudolf's nose it looked more like a beak, so I did a quick change around; four legs became two, and I managed to persuade myself that what had started out as a set of antlers could pass for a rather splendid cockerel's comb.

So what do you think?

Anyway if you'd like to make it, here's the chart: 

The method is the same as for my first Union Jack Christmas Tree ball

All the best for now,

  2. Ok, I CANNOT do this one. (Baking is challenging enough, this is out of the question). It does look like a rooster. Quick thinking.

    1. Thank you, Christa. Not to worry: we all like to do different things and have different hobbies. It would be boring if everyone liked the same stuff. All the best and thanks for stopping by, Bonny
