Knitting pattern instructions to knit Cracker the Old English Sheepdog
Cracker is knit using the loop stitch and does not need special yarn to make him. 150g of cream and 100g of grey double knitting yarn is needed.
Here are instructions for loop stitch taken from the pattern.
Loop Stitch (L): Insert the right knitting needle in to the stitch as though to knit it. Stick out your left thumb towards your right hand and at a right angle to your body about 3-4cm away from the needles. Wrap the yarn around the needle as though to knit the stitch and bring the yarn around your thumb. Holding the loop with your thumb, take the yarn back over the needle the way that it came and knit into the back of the same stitch. You now have created two stitches from this. Take the rear stitch and pull over the second and off the needle, leaving one stitch remaining. The loop should be about 8cm long in total or 4cm in half.
