I have started knitting a new series: people at work.
I started with creating little people in uniforms to start. My plan is to make human figures of different occupations. They can be enjoyed as toys. You can also create lookalikes for gifts.
Depends on the regions, the uniforms are slightly different, but I found they are quite similar. They are either in black or khaki brown with reflective tapes. I made the UK fire fighters. I thought the side flaps on the helmet are distinctive to fire fighters, but it seems that they don’t wear these in our country.
I made some accessories to go with the set.
I made the hose for one of the firefighters and also, I made the water hydrant. I am quite please with this one. I think it looks cute on its own. You can attach a string and make it into a dangler charm.
This one is the UK fire truck. For those who live outside Britain, this is how our fire truck look like, they have bright orange and yellow patterns on the sides.
I could have knitted without the pattern for a plain version of course. I just wanted to have a go.
My boys would have loved playing with the set 10 years ago.
