Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

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.
