Adorable winter knits from Woolly Woodlanders!

I recently received a package from the lovely Hazel from Woolly Woodlanders, who sells miniature knitting patterns and kits she designs herself for Sylvanian Families (Calico Critters).

Although I can knit, I felt my older sister could do the patterns far more justice than I could, so she kindly volunteered to knit them for me.

It's getting very chilly in Little Chestnut so I had quite a few volunteers to model the new clothes!




























Cameron Moss is wearing a snuggly jumper from the 'Playing in the Woods' kit.




























The problem with Winter is that as much as you want to wear pretty dresses, it's just far too cold! Maria Buckley can now wear a dress that is not only warm but ornate! ;)


One of my favourite patterns are the trousers! Rupert Buckley finds them suitably insulating when skiing.




























Tilly Dappledawn loves her warm hat because it doesn't squash her ears!



























Juniper Moss and Abbie Keats love taking winter walks! The spotty jumper has to be my all-time favourite :)

These are just a few of the clothes, I will be sure to show some more over the next few months. There might even be a special Christmas Story up in the next few days featuring some more of these adorable clothes, so keep checking back (or you can subscribe for free to be notified by email when I publish a new post - see the toolbar on the right).

There are several options when buying from Woolly Woodlander's website: patterns, kits (which include the patterns and all of the needles/wool/buttons etc) or if you're not quite confident at knitting yet, ready-made clothes. Hazel is only happy to help, so feel free to send her an email if you have any questions before purchasing.

Please Note: I have not being paid to make this post, I just feel Hazel is extremely talented and deserves some attention :)

  3. Hi Lily! It's been a while since your last post... It's good to know that you're still there. I love the little jumpers and hats! I know your Sylvanians won't catch a cold this Winter (though it's Summer for me, haha!). Will the next chapter of the Winter Story be coming out this season? I still want to know what happens! :P

    1. Hi Layla - Sorry about the lack of posts, 2013 has been a very busy year for me! Hopefully two posts in one week will make up for it :P Still unsure about what I'm doing concerning the Winter Stories...
