For a full list, see page 92 Small children love pretending to be something different, and angels and fairies are always a favourite, particularly at Christmas. Let their imagination fly with this delightful pair of angel wings made in Peter Pan’s gloriously fluffy Precious Chunky. They’re the stuff of sweet dreams.
It can be difficult to see the sts when working with Peter Pan Precious Chunky. We suggest using a stitch marker to mark the first and last st of each row. This will help you keep track of your stitch count.
