An easy to follow, delightful pattern for an adorable Elf Meerkat! The meerkat is made from Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake yarn, which gives it such a cute and cuddly appearance. However, alternative DK/Light Worsted (8ply) yarns can be used, so please feel free to use up what's in your stash!
The meerkat's feet, body and head are knitted in one piece, and the arms are knitted into a row, so there's very little sewing to do to make up your meerkat; which is always a bonus! All pieces are knitted flat on straight needles and the pattern has clear row by row instructions and lots of photographs to help you along the way.
Everyone loves meerkats and this adorable meerkat would make a lovely Christmas decoration or a special gift for a friend or loved one.
Knitables is dedicated to my brave and inspirational mum-in-law Linda, who during her 13 year battle with cancer, raised thousands of pounds for charity by knitting scarves and toys. It was Linda who first encouraged me to design my own range of knitted toys, as she was constantly looking for new things to knit and was always so impressed with my designs and ideas.
