Bacon

Bacon

Bacon (as dubbed by Little Sir)

Pattern: Elefante by Susan B. Anderson

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Merino Aran, Colorway 325006 (it's a mustardy yellow), 1.5 skeins

Needles: US 4 dpns

Mods: I substituted the yarn, and I did it all in one color (but the striped version is pretty cute). I also subbed the ears from the elephant pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts because my crochet skills are so below basic I can't even be classified as a novice. But I also happen to love seed stitch, and I think the ears are pretty cute the way I did them...

I knitted a blanket for Bacon to correspond with the book. I used a really small amount of Knit Picks Palette in Mint held double, cast on 14 stitches and knit garter stitch for 6 inches. I added fringe for cuteness. It's like a mini-scarf, really.
