Arts & Crafts: A Magical Narwhal Friend
Because everyone needs a unicorn of the sea!
WELCOME TO ARTS & CRAFTS
This is where I showcase something creative I have made. It may be a drawing, my knitting, or another handmade craft I enjoy making.
There’s a poll at the bottom for what I should share next. Do it please! 😘
Today, I’m sharing the pattern I wrote for Whally, the magical narwhal familiar, so you can make your own.
And given the difficulty I've had finding info on what knitting patterns I can and can't use for craft shows, I'm going to state upfront: You are welcome to make and sell handmade narwhals with this knitting pattern. All I ask is you give me credit for the knitting pattern. You can also share pictures of your knitted handmade narwhals with me. I'd honestly love to see them.
