(6) Name: 'Knitting : Sniffets

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • I-Cord

Pattern Description:

The Sniffets are a type of insect that inhabit Planet Lumpet, they are known as social insects as they enjoy a good party. They live in burrows underground in groups of 10 to 25 depending how big they have made their burrow - extensions can be made but young Sniffets are encouraged to venture out and start new colonies (who wants to live with their parents forever?). Some have been known to wander Lumpet for many, many months seeing as many of the sights as possible before settling down - these are considered the wisest of the Sniffets and welcomed into most colonies.

There are 5 main types of Sniffet recorded; these are easily distinguished by their colour, smell and taste.

1.Yellow - Pineapple Sponge
2.Brown - Treacle Tart
3.Green - Apple Pie
4.Beige - Roasted Peanut*
5.Orange - Carrot Cake

Plus 3 rare types:
1.White - Pina Colada
2.Dark Brown - Chocolate Whip
3.Blue - Blueberry Surprise

*No one knows why there is one that is savoury as opposed to sweet.
