Wind in the Willows Characters: Mr Badger
Not sure what makes me love this chap the most: the shuffly slippers… the jaunty neck scarf… or the teeny specs. A great example of what makes Claire Garland’s patterns so uniquely special. It’s her way of capturing character and feeling. Just lovely and available to buy as a PDF download on Etsy.

Mr Toad knitting pattern
Claire has managed to capture the flamboyance of Mr Toad beautifully in this pattern – love his stripy trousers and belted smoking jacket!
