  1. Reblogged this on Witch Crafts and commented:
    My 4 year old (who doesn’t even like Frozen) says the only thing he wants for Christmas is Olaf, so how fortunate that this pattern showed up on my Pinterest feed today.❤

  2. This looks so cute! congratulations for making the pattern! Just wondering how did you do the hair and arms? Do you think this is possible on circular needles? I’m not very good with the DPNs thanks!!

    • Hi there,

      Definitely do-able on circular needles- just place a stitch marker in the start of the first row in the round and use the magic loop method. The hair and arms I did by twisting black yarn and then doubling it over itself…. it makes a thicker twisted yarn really.

  3. Hello😄 Thanks a lot for this Olaf. I have made a norwegian transfer for yours, and Wonder if its ok tho publish it on norwegian knitting pages on Facebook?
