As Lizzy became very popular, we decided to create Lizzy's pattern in two additional formats, which we hope will simplify your life. The first is a standard .PDF format, which should make printing easier for you.
Another format - Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. If you are using Lizzy's pattern in MS Excel format you will enjoy the following benefits:
• Track your progress by marking completed rows directly in the spreadsheet.
• See the progress (as percentage completed) for each detail as well as for the whole project.
• You can work on details in any order. You can even knit several details at the same time. For example, you can finish the Head, knit 40% of the Detail 1 of the Nose and feel like continuing working on the most complex part - Body, which you are only 15% done. You will still be able to accurately track your overall progress.
Both 'Lizzy the Cow Pattern.pdf" and "lizzy_the_cow_pattern.xls" are available for download. Scroll down to the end of the page (before the comments) and download the files.
We used Patons black and white yarn for body, head and ears and Patons grey yarn for the nose:
Patons Classic Merino Wool Yarn-Forest.
For hair we used Fun Fur yarn: Fuschia Fun Fur Eyelash Knitting Yarn
We knitted Lizzy the cow with bamboo needles #7: 14" Single Point Bamboo Knitting Needles (SIZE-7).
We used poly-fil to keep Lizzy the cow in shape: Poly-Fil.
Cast on 63 stitches. Follow the pattern using white and black colors:
Cast on 17 stitches using white Patons yarn. Keep knitting following the pattern until you've reached the hear line (grey color). Use Fun Fir for hear.
Cast on 8 stitches. Follow the pattern using grey Patons yarn.
Cast on 18 stitches. Follow the pattern using white Patons yarn.
Sew details together using poly-fill to keep shape. Make braids from a mixture of Fun Fir, Patons grey yarn. Knit bows and a tong from yarn leftovers. Use your imagination!
