i don't know who made them or where they come from (i'm guessing south america somewhere from the llamas or alpacas and the style of dress on the peeps). they are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO wicked cool though. there are two of them. they're covered by glass (hence the reflection of the flash). they're also pretty big. a few feet wide by a few feet high.
pattern: my own (all garter). i'd share but i didn't write it down. i just made one end fatter than the other. i started at the wider end, decreased a bit as i went along and put three button holes in the skinnier end. i used a basic wool (the green) and the other yarn with thingies coming out of it. i pulled all the thingies that ended up on the wrong side to the right side (you can use a crochet hook, but i happened to use a wooden pick that is used for garnishes on beverages (you know olives in your martini). it's fairly thick and i'm sure will keep nancy nice and toasty!
