  • CONSTRUCTION

    Although knitting anything with spikes is going to be a little fiddly, the construction method used is simple and fun. The body is worked in the round and the spikes are worked in separate pieces and joined to the body as you go, this also makes it easy to work the spikes in a darker colour if desired.
