I have been very busy recently knitting these ferrets. They are made using double knitting wool and eyelash yarn held together. They take quite a while to make but I think they look convincing. It has taken me 6 months of practice to get them looking like ferrets what do you think?

Hee hee before I read the text I looked at the photo and I thought 'wow, they really look like ferrets actually!, except for the fur, they kind of look like ferrets would if they had a wash and blowdry, cause the fur's different'. So yes really convincing. I thought about posting that... and then I thought ' where else but here would you see a post beginning with

'I have been very busy recently knitting these ferrets.'

Then I saw 'it has taken me about 6 months to get them looking like ferrets' and thought 'hell why was she so keen on succeeding on getting ferret-like ferrets? Seriously did she need some knitted ferrets or something?'
Hmmm I might make their butts a bit smaller maybe? I'm only criticising because you asked - sorry. But I never had a pet ferret so don't really know... They certainly look lifelike. Sandy kind of reminds me of a possum! (we have way more possums than ferrets in NZ so that's not a reflection on your knitting)
Really cute and better than teddy bears IMO because they are kind of floppy! I like how you made Sandy's ears less hairy because that's what ferret ears look like right? Skillz on the body shaping.

Just out of curiosity was this kind of an exercise in making something look like what you wanted... or do you know a kid who loves ferrets... or were they props or was it just a whim?
If they were posed with heads up in the air they would definitely pass for ferrets on a brief glance.

Ditto here! Only it would be for my 15 yr old cousin who's ferret recently passed. Her mom said no more ferrets, and she's just crushed. This would be totally awesome!

very nice!

Wow such interest. Thankyou I tell you what I will get the pattern written out properly and I will pm all those who asked for the pattern very soon. I will get better pics taken when I get the latest ones finished. That way you can see from all angles what they really look like. Glad you like them. Love stasher xx

I would definitely love to get the pattern too. They just the cutest thing ever. I have been thinking of trying something more difficult and those would absolutely qualify in my book. They look very hard indeed ,but well worth the effort. (also do you know where I can find a squirrel and a chipmunk pattern?... I have looked and can't seem to find one). Anyways, my applause :yay: for awesome work.

Oh my gosh, those are just way too cute! I love seeing stuff like this. It gives me hope that, some day, I may actually be good enough to do something like this!:knitting:

OK, so now knit them a hammock, stick them in their cage and have fun! And you don't even have to feed them or worry about the musky odor that some ferrets have. Way cool!

Can you put me on the list for the pattern as well? I'll put it in my "someday" file.

Thanks so much for sharing! Now, if I could only find a pattern for a knit pug I would be in heaven!:angelgrin:

Can I put my hand up for the pattern too? I'd LOVE to have a real ferret, but am not allowed by the people I live with (ie: the Inlaws).

I could knit myself a couple and sit and play with them with my son :D

Hello there Thank you so much for the interest in the knitting pattern and the lovely comments.
My sister and I have been talking about the ferrets. Feel free to get me ejected from the site but I have decided to get in touch with a knitting pattern company to see if they want my pattern. I worked really hard on the pattern as I could find no other on the net at all. I suppose there isn`t much call for cuddly knitted ferrets. If the manufacturer isn`t interested I will post it up. But for now I am so sorry but I must keep the pattern under wraps. Going to now keep head down incase I get yelled at. Love stasher. xxx

Don't be silly! If you can get the pattern published, that's brilliant!

Just make sure you let us know where to get it first :P
