PATTERN DETAILS

NOTE: EU purchasers MUST purchase my patterns here: http://www.ravelry.com/designers/lorraine-pistorio One of my favorite charity organizations is Smile Train (http://www.smiletrain.org ). This organization provides free cleft surgery to hundreds of thousands of poor children in developing countries. As they do, I believe every child deserves a beautiful smile. So I decided to design a Knit Smile Train in honor of these children and DONATE THE PROCEEDS to this wonderful organization. My Smile Train is a colorful train with a happy face on the front. It has two freight cars that can carry lots of toys (not included) for hours of fun (& learning colors) for that special someone. You are sure to see smiles in return! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, Purl, Increase, Decrease, Cast-on, Bind-off, I-cord GAUGE Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tight enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 17" long x 6" wide x 8" high.
