Wind in the Willows characters – 4 patterns to knit
Ratty knitting pattern
This adorable Ratty pattern is available to buy on Etsy as a PDF download and the body is made with flat knitting on 2 needles and the jodhpur and sweater are made with minimal seaming, joining as you go.

Wind in the Willows Characters: Moley Knitting Pattern
If this Moley pattern wasn’t heart-melting enough as it is, how about those tiny glasses? There’s a video to show you how to make them, along with more images and details if you click here: Moley knitting pattern from The Wind in the Willows
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! As with the other patterns, you can buy on Etsy as a PDF download. For lots more info and photos of Mr Toad, click here: Mr Toad knitting pattern from The Wind in the Willows
