This is my Aardvark knitting pattern, he is one of my favourite patterns and will only be available for sale for a limited time on Etsy and direct download from my Ravelry store as he will be published in my book soon and then he will be delisted from my shops:)
He is a sweet fella. Aardvarks live in Sub-Sahara Africa on the grasslands and bushland, they are solitary creatures and are nocturnal. Their closest relatives are the elephant shrew and elephant and they eat mainly termites and have a keen sense of smell.
Measurements when knitted: Approx 9 inches from muzzle to tail and 6 and a half inches tall.
This pattern is knitted flat with two 4mm / 6 US needles and is knitted in stocking stitch, there are increases and decreases. A fairly easy pattern. The pattern is 7 pages long with detailed instructions and photos and if there is anything that is not clear you can always email me:)
I will be giving away 4 patterns to 4 readers:)
