Here comes The Red Nose Gang - the most comical chuckle of colourful Clowns you will ever meet!

These figures are exceptional works of knitted art. They are free-standing and measure an impressive 48cm (19in) in height. The detail in all five Clowns is truly outstanding.

But the most amazing thing about the Clowns is that they are so easy to make. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly elaborate detail. Such is Jean’s talent for simplicity of construction that the Clowns can be made by anyone who can knit, purl, increase and decrease. These are the only skills required.

Just look at the instructions for the Basic Clown’s legs, body, head and hat shown below. As you can see, the instructions are mainly words, with very few lines of rows and stitches. Incredible isn’t it? You have probably knitted tea-cosies with more complicated patterns. And the rest of the Clown pieces and their accessories are just as simple.

This booklet is absolutely packed with over forty imaginative novelties for charity fund-raising and gifts for family and friends.
The centre piece in Bazaar Knits is Jean's superb Pedlar Doll. During the late 18th and early 19th centuries pedlars travelled the countryside selling their wares and it became a popular pastime to make pedlar dolls. These could be constructed from various materials - some were even made with dried apple heads. These old dolls have since become collectors' items and are often seen in museums. Jean's charming Pedlar Doll is unique because everything is knitted, including her many wares. Why not make her for a charity raffle, as a special gift or just for yourself. Perhaps your creation may prove to be a collectors' item of the future or an heirloom to treasure. The Pedlar Doll measures 29cm (11½in) in height to the top of her bonnet.
