Speaking of adorable little patterns for kids, Frankie Brown has a great one available for download from Ravelry called Little Boats.
They are, in fact, little boats, measuring about 4 inches tall. they stand up on their own (with a little help from a pipe cleaner in the mast) and are just big enough for a tiny crew of Lego people or wee animals.
Though the pattern is free, the designer suggests that people who download it make a small donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, for which Frankie’s patterns have raised more than £4,000.
