(6) Name: 'Knitting : Lizard

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting

Pattern Description:

This lizard is knitted with a small amount of 4ply wool. Using a different shade for the underbelly gives a lovely realistic result. You will need less that 10g in all.

This is a fairly straightforward knit. You will need two double-point needles (2.25mm), as there is some icord knitting and short rows. The body of the lizard is knitted in two pieces, so there is some seaming, and the legs are knitted separately and have to be attached. I tried other ways, but this seemed to give the most realistic results.

I used craft eyes and beads, but if you are going to give this to a small child it is probably best to sew the eyes with wool.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Nose to Tail 20cm


  • 2 double pointed needles Size 2.25mm
  • 4ply wool 10g

You Will Also Need:

  • Beads or Attachable Eyes
