Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • increase
  • decrease
  • short rows

Pattern Description:

My Little Slug is pattern for knitting your very own custom slug, for those days when no one will buy you a pony. Knit them in a variety of body sizes with 6 or 8 symmetrical legs. The smallest size makes a great xmas ornament (and takes me less than 2 hours to make)! Decorate your slug with single or multiple eyes, add a mouth to emulate an octopus, or add antennas and accessories! Attach a rare earth magnet and have your slug stick to you everywhere you go!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 3 inch high, 1.5 inch body in worsted weight yarn on 4.5mm


  • needles for circular knitting
  • stitch markers
  • about 30 yards of any yarn for the smallest size
  • rare earth magnet (optional)
