Free pattern: Floating Flutterguys

20 May

The Floating Flutterguy is a simple creature. He turns from a cocoon of scrap yarn into a beautiful woolly winged wonder in less time than it takes to scream “AGH! Is that a moth!? Get it away from my cashmere!!!”.

Lucky for you (and for your cashmere) the Floating Flutterguy isn’t hungry for your yarn. All he wants is to be set free somewhere in your city.

The Floating Flutterguy prepares for take off

Fly, my pretties, fly!

I hatched the Floating Flutterguy specially for Stitch London’s annual Stitch Crawl 2011 which happens to fall on International Yarnbombing Day. Although I’m not a fan of the ‘bombing’ bit (us Brit’s yarnstorm. It’s less destructive and more creative sneaky stitched storming) I fully endorse the stepping out of the shadows with your knits and sharing them with the world.

Go on. Let your Floating Flutterguys fly free!

(I’d be thrilled to see pics of your stitched swarms of Flutterguys if you make them. Please add them to the Planet Whodunnknit group on Flickr)
