ZINGY THE EDF FLAME FREE KNITTING PATTERN

A free knitting pattern for Zingy the EDF Flame who everyone seems to have fallen in love with!
I can take no credit for this knitting pattern as I was forwarded it from a friend who found it somewhere on the 'Net and I haven't had time to knit it so it is sort of "untested"!
Pattern below - good luck with it!

Stuff the base a little more if needed, and then run cast on tail yarn through cast on sts and pull up tight. Thread ends in.
From white felt cut 2 X 7/8 inch circles, just touching. An easy way to do this is to find a button the correct size and trace around it, making the circles just touching. Then it can be cut out in one piece. From black felt cut 2 X 3/8 inch circles, and a ¼ inch oval. Centre black circles in white circles and stitch down with tiny sts. Sew this to centre front of flame. Sew black oval to just under where circles touch.
