One armed clown face comes with an extra cuff which was trying to be the second arm. There is no back to the garment and there is 60g of 100% acrylic yarn left. Ellen's working drawing is coming soon, but it looks like it would fit a 2 year old, unless you can think of another use!
Sadly this piece was donated to us by St. Joseph's Hospice in Hackney. Someone didn't manage to finish it before they passed away. 
Sally from Maidenhead sorted this piece out over one weekend. She added some jewels to chear up the clown, and then turned the piece into a bag.  She unravelled the 1/4 sleeve which gave her enough yarn to knit the back piece and then added the spare sleeve as a pocket and used some of her own scraps to knit the handles. what a brilliantly jolly solution. Well done Sally!


  1. I know I don't have time to finish this, but I can just imagine it would make a great tote bag or similar. Great blog.

  2. I think it would make a geat cushion.

  3. Hasn't sally done a brilliant job!

  4. I love it! I love what Sally's done!
