What child's dresser would be complete without an adorable photo and a bank? Though these are two essentials for a child's room, I wanted to design a dresser set that would put the FUN in FUNctional. So I designed 2 delightful sets that would make a great gift for a little girl or boy. The snout of the piggy unties to reveal a hidden chamber to save money, perhaps from the Tooth Fairy! And a toothless picture would look adorable in the photo frame proudly displayed by a sweet ducky wearing a matching hat! And if needed, Ducky would make a faithful friend to hug and hear the whole tooth story, since Ducky could also go out to play without the frame. Knit in the round, using #4-worsted wt. yarn, Ducky sits approx. 8 1/2" high without the hat, Piggy stands approx. 5 1/2" high, and you could put a 3" picture in the frame. Whichever set you choose, these little dresser friends would delight any young child!
Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
