I have the full set of three Clanger annuals ... I loved them as a kid, and read a story from one to my son just last night !

Anyway, they have the patterns for knititng a clanger, making one from felt, making a dragon from a pair of green tights, and making froglets from blown eggs and pipecleaners. Great stuff !

BTW Badger, I don't know how you happened upon that site, but the clanger gallery is great !

Using mattress or whip stitch, sew along back of dog and down bottom. At head, fold in half and sew cast (bound) off edges of nose together. Using mattress or whip stitch, sew cast on row of tummy to bottom end of dog and sew cast (bound) off row to nose. Ease and sew tummy to fit body, matching curves to legs. Leave a 2.5cm (1in) gap between front and back legs on one side.

Turn right side out.

Roll the pipecleaners in some stuffing and bend them into a U shape. Fold over the ends and slip into body, one pipecleaner down front legs and one down back legs. Stuff and sew up gap with mattress stitch. Mould into shape.
Sew ears to head at a slight angle as shown in photograph. Use the end of yarn at the point of the ear and sew down the ear to prevent it from flicking up.

Using black yarn, embroider nose in satin stitch and make two French knots for eyes. Sew ends of collar together and slide over head onto neck.

I think it's lovely (but the socks are going slowly so I mustn't get enthusiastic!)

Does anyone have a source of good basic patterns, such as gloves? I want to do some patterned knitting - I'm quite happy about doing the colours, stripes, rows of hearts etc, I just want a basic knitting pattern to adapt

Thanks for that (Bev's country cottage is an interesting site for knitting things to send overseas.)
