Snoopy

Snoopy

(Update: Snoopy now has a little friend. Check out my version of Woodstock!)

My Grandpa has always loved the Peanuts comic strip. I remember him reading them to us when we were little and his smile and chuckle that are so dear to me. I get sad that I live so far away from him and don’t get to see him often. This year for Christmas I made up this Snoopy and his pattern… with the smile that it would put on Grandpa’s face in mind. And, of course, I knit my Snoopy a little bitty red scarf and sent him off to Grandpa.

Snoopy is also now for sale at my store.

I hope you enjoy him as well and the free pattern!
