Frank Zappa



Meet Frank! This was my Xmas present to my other half, who loves Frank Zappa. I was trying to knit him at work at lunchtime so he wouldn't see it, but things got so busy that I only had his awesome flares done by Xmas Eve. So I had to knit a bit in front of him while he guessed (he totally knew it was for him) - he thought it might be a BeeGee from the flares.

Got up 6am Xmas Day to finish his face and hair. He's minimal and needs a guitar but hey...

  2. Hi- I made him up as I went along but can provide some basic pattern notes - he's pretty simple really!

  3. Can you make me a headcover for a golf club of Frank..
    I don't need the body.
    I have tried to find someone before with no luck..
    How much?

  4. Hi! I think a golf club cover would be fairly simple and quick to do- but I'd need some measurements as I don't know any golfers whose clubs i could borrow! For just a head to cover a club I could probably make one up for about £10 using acrylic yarn- let me know!

  5. I will...
    The club is called a driver and they do have large heads...
    I will get those measurements asap.
    When you make the head cover all you need is the head of Frank and about another 10 inches for the neck so it can be pulled over the club.
    It does have to stretch over the club head
    If this works out I would love two of them..
    Tell your husband the second one is for Dweezil Zappa!
    Thanks..

  13. Hi, I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to knit up another one, however a couple of knitters have successfully made one using my pattern notes here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/mutton/frank-zappa Maybe you can find a local knitter to help? (love that you named your daughter Moon Unit, we now have a cat called Dweezil which is as close as we'll get!)
