Young Alfs Pals Knitting & Crochet Patterns

  • In the Red Nose Gang Part 5 Pattern Booklet, Jean Greenhowe has produced a unique and fascinating new craft which transforms garter stitch strips into exciting creations. This booklet introduces a group of irresistible characters... Young Alf and his five friends!Young Alf has got five new pals that he wanted to share.Each standing at about 40cm (16") and easy to create out of oddments of double knitting yarn.There's Young Wilf for a start with his sailor suit and knitted sand castle, bucket and spade. You can tell how much he loves to be beside the seaside. Wilf is accompanied by Colin, The Red Nose Cockle and Captain, The Red Nose Crab - little design gems in their own right.Young Sweetie is decked out in the most yummy of sweet treats - even her buttons are liquorice allsorts and those pin-wheel lollypops are so easy to make. As you can imagine, Sweetie is very popular with the rest of The Gang.Young Mabel likes nothing better than rambling around the countryside. Happily, with the signpost on her hat she is sure never to get lost. Mabel loves watching the birdies with her binoculars but what is she carrying in her rucksack? Why, lunch of course. Her picnic includes cheese sandwiches and ginger biscuits in a 'paper' bag plus a knitted vacuum flask of tea. Whizz ... watch out! Here comes Young Elsie scooting along on her roller skates, skipping and yo-yoing - sometimes all at the same time! She never stops still. Young Alf calls her The Rainbow Tornado and we're not surprised. You can tell that she also has lots of adventures with her friend Horace, The Red Nose Hobby Horse. He's such a fun fellow with his harness and cosy scarf.Crash, bang, wallop ... meet Young Ernie, a One Boy Band extraordinaire. What a racket he makes with the washboard and thimbles, bells on his shoes, a kazoo, horn, pan lid and buttons on his hat. Oh, and he also plays the spoons! And that's not all - just look at Ernie's back view and his knitted biscuit tin drum. He loves entertaining the other Gang members with a 'noisy' musical repertoire.
