Rainbow Korknisse

Oooo, a little toadstool house.
Who lives here, I wonder?

Of course! It's the little Korknisse!
How lovely to see you.
How are you?
Are there any more of you in there?

Oh how super! Lots of Korknisse.
And rainbow colours, too.
Please can I have a nice photo of you?

Oh now, that's just silly.
Please behave.

Thank you, that's better.

Now, can I take a photo indoors, so we can see you in all your summer finery?

Right, in a line please.

Really. You are just being naughty now.
Stop buggering around and behave.

Well now, that's just plain showing off now, fellas.

"Nice butterfly."
"Ta."

Oh dear, I think the sun got to me today.

'Korknisse' means 'cork elf' in Norwegian. They are traditionally knitted Christmas ornaments, but I crochet mine Amigurumi-stylie and love 'em at any time of the year.

I've already made Spring Korknisse here and Royal Wedding Korknisse here too.
Mad, but true.

  3. hi, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog! I've been here before, and I liked your blog, but unfortunately there's no "follow" button here. This time I'll copy your url and add it to my favorites. Your little friends and their house are amazing! So cute with the little buttons and the butterfly, I think I have to try those!

    Love from K-town,

  6. I'm trying not to laugh out loud because my 18 year old daughter is in the room and if I tell her I am laughing at crochet round corks to make little blokes she will give me a withering look and might put me in a home.
    Very funny, the comments make them come alive.

  9. Blimey, you've made loads of these little men. They're super cute. Where did you get the pattern for the toadstool? I can't believe you haven't been crocheting your whole life, you are obv a naturally crafty person. It takes me ages to do anything.

  16. Oh I do love your korknisse. They're so mischievous! I would definitely like to make some of these around Christmas. Although, nothing will beat your amazing royal wedding ones! (Also love the toadstool house, if I was a littley again I would fight someone for it!) x

  19. Absolutely bonkers, but really, really love them. I feel there may be a void in my life that can only be filled with a little cork man in a hat (would have to be dark grey, obv. Has to match the new walls).
