Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

I was working on a commission for 4 Koalas for the Australian Scouts to take to Japan. I changed the original "Ozzie" pattern to be slightly smaller and knitted top down. Due to demand I have published this pattern.
Little Ozzie is knitted top down in one flat piece with seams, ears and nose are knitted separate and stitched in place. There is a small amount of short row work for elbows, knees and ears but you will find a brief tutorial included with the pattern.

Not important, just ensure that your knitting weave is tight enough so that the filling is not visible.
