 Absolutely frigg'n BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  These have gotta be a 'best of' for 2010!

*this has the longest comment I've ever written on the This Rocks window*

Seriously: this is probably one of the most clever, most appealing and green things I've ever seen on here.

I'll second that!
These are fantastic!
I have a huge bag of corks that have been waiting for something this awesome!
And even of I didn't have any, I'd start drinking to make these! Wink

I think they look like old school Fisher Price Little People.

They are adorable!  I would love to see a pattern!  I agree these look a little like Fisher Price people... a set would go great with the FP house my grandfather made!

I'm pleased so many of you like these! It was fun making a whole army of knights - and a chess set sounds like a great idea.

Here goes with some of the patterns - it's amazing how long it takes to write up something that I can explain to myself with a few scribbled numbers in a notepad! Feel free to use these for personal use, or to raise money for good causes.

Cork and Crochet Knight



You will need:
Small amounts of grey and bright coloured yarn (red, green, blue or yellow) yarn.
Small piece of felt and length of yarn, both different colours to the main body of the knight.
A cork, approx 1.75" (4.5cm) long.
Black permanent marker pen (Sharpie).
4 mm (F) hook.

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
st = stitch or stitches
ss = slip stitch
sc = single crochet (US), double crochet (UK)
dc = double crochet (US), treble crochet (UK)
hdc = half double crochet (US), half treble crochet (UK)
BLO = back loop only
FLO = front loop only
bob = bobble (see special stitch instructions)
tog = together
sc2tog = decrease by working two sc together
FO = fasten off

General instructions:
Work in rounds unless otherwise stated and do not join rounds unless told to. Use a stitch marker to mark the start of a round - a small piece of different coloured yarn placed under the stitch at the start of the round will do. To start a round, you can use the magic ring method, but I prefer (ch2, work 6 sc into 1st ch). If you work the 6 sc over the tail of yarn as well you can use that to pull the hole tight.

Work through both loops of stitches unless otherwise indicated.

Start using grey yarn:
Round 1: Ch2, work 6 sc into 1st ch - 6 sc.
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
Round 3: [2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc] 3 times 15 sc.
Round 4 - 5: (2 rounds) Sc in each sc around - 15 sc.
Ch1, turn.
Row 1: Sc in next 10 sc, ch1, turn - 10 sc.
Row 2: Sc in next 10 sc, ch5.
Round 6: Sc into 1st sc of row 2, sc in next 9 sc, 5 sc over ch5 - 15 sc.
Sc in next 2 sc, change to bright coloured yarn and mark as start of round.
Round 7 - 11: (5 rounds) Sc in each sc around - 15 sc.
Change to grey yarn.
Round 12: Sc in each sc around - 15 sc.
Ss in next sc, FO and weave in end.

Cut felt into small shield shape and use contrasting yarn to sew onto body with a cross shape.

Use black yarn to sew a little mouth on the beard.

Fit over cork and carefully draw face in the gap.

These are fantastic!   Grin  I was going to do something with corks for the upcoming challenge.  Now I know to stay away from cork gnomes because I can't beat what you did here!   Cheesy
