Mrs Tiggy-Pops!

Rabbie asked me to do a Mary Poppins/Mrs Tiggy-Winkle mash-up and like any crazy knitter up for a challenge…

Is it Mrs Tiggy-Winkle dressed as Mary Poppins, or Mary Poppins reincarnated as a hedgehog?

The main body of the pattern is based on the Alan Dart Mrs Tiggy-Winkle pattern I made last time, with some colour changes, a few tweaks and some extras. Such as…

Crumble looks so cute in that hat!

The hat comes from the pattern Emily by Jean Greenhowe, it’s one of her knitted dolls, but the hat was perfect! And I couldn’t resist putting it on Crumble, she looks so cute in hats! Even if she gives me death glares for it…

Carpet bag! Not an exact replica by any means, but it’s still cute!

Winged the carpet bag, a must for Mary Poppins and probably one of my favourite parts of the whole movie, but I used the free chart from Headband ‘Roses’ by Ann Linderhjelm

And who could forget the umbrella?!

For this one, I used the free pattern Quick Mini Yarn Parasols by Amanda Williams, but added extra stitches and worked it on larger needles.

It was a big project, and took a fair bit of time, but I’m really pleased with it. I hope Rabbie likes it as much as I do!

Especially the hat.

I may have to make one for Crumble…

    She’s practically perfect in every way! I love her to pieces already.

    And yes, Crumble needs a hat!
