Pattern Description:

Meet the Bumblie. He is a character from the 1950's, one of three aliens that came to earth to watch how human children played.
I was told by my mum, that thunder was caused by Bumblies up in Bumblie land running at each other full speed and banging tummies together - I am sure she would not have lied to me cough
Sitting 5 inches high, this fun little character is knitted flat on 3mm needles.
He is a very quick and easy knit. The pattern is clearly written and includes photos to help you along the way.
Materials needed
DK or equivalent yarn in the following colours
Flesh or pale pink - less than 10g
Navy blue - scrap
3mm needles - used throughout
2 x 10mm blue plastic toy eyes (optional)
Scrap of flesh colour felt (optional)
Scrap of stiff card
Clear glue (optional)
Small length of red yarn or embroidery silk for mouth
If making for a small child, I suggest embroidering the eyes


Not important as long as you are consistent and the stuffing does not show through, but for guidance this toy was knitted at 7st and 11 rows to the inch.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 5 inches high sitting
