I have the book..
I have 2 very excited children that want Clangers...
I refuse to buy Rowan for a childish whim...

I'm looking at Stylecraft and cannot decide if the Pale Rose or the Magenta is the best match.....
The Rowan wool specified is Tea Rose......

Help me choose...

Pale rose

The magenta is very purply

www.amazon.co.uk/Clangers-Step---step-Projects-Knitting/dp/1908449055/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1434898160&sr=1-1&keywords=knitting+clangers

It is based on the original series and so the Clanger outfits are a bit different... (DD has just had a weeny meltdown because Small is wearing the 'wrong' outfit.....)

I have gone with Pale Rose. Thank you.

I meant to say I am registered with BBC tickets for shows and they have just emailed me a Clangers pattern (sorry I can't link)

BBC Have a pattern for Tiny

PurpleFrog Sun 21-Jun-15 16:52:06

There's a free pattern for Tiny clanger on the Radio Times website. I'm on the iPad so can't link easily just now.

PurpleFrog Sun 21-Jun-15 16:52:34

SNAP!

SoupDragon Sun 21-Jun-15 16:53:31

I'm on an iPad too [smug]

wink

LIZS Sun 21-Jun-15 16:54:41

That's the one dm has, not sure how to scale it up for the others though!

PurpleFrog Sun 21-Jun-15 16:59:06

Soupie envy grin

neverputasockinatoaster Sun 21-Jun-15 17:34:29

The book I have has a knitted Soup Dragon pattern. The scales are felt.

DD wants a Skymoo.........

My book has no pattern for a Skymoo....

The only thing different about the Clangers in my book to the modern ones are the colour of the outfits. A bit of footling will soon make Small the right colour to please madam.....

But if anyone finds a pattern for a Skymoo I would love a link!
