I designed these squidgy animals for a friend who was learning to knit, and wanted an easy toy pattern. Included in this pattern e-book are:
Pudding the Cat
Topsy Turvy Turtle
The patterns only require you to know how to knit, purl, cast on, cast off, increase using KFB (knit front and back), and decrease using K2TOG (knit two stitches together). You also need to change colours (knit stripes). I have some free tutorials on some of the techniques required on my blog http://fluffandfuzzknitting.wordpress.com
The pattern includes row by row instructions so you don't forget your place. You will need to sew the finished toys together, and step by step construction photos are included in the pattern.
All pieces are knitted flat on 3mm straight needles, and each toy uses approximately 100g double knit yarn and 100g stuffing. The finished toys are approximately 23 cm high.
My name is Amanda Berry and I love knitting, sewing and anything crafty!
I started designing my own toys as fluff and fuzz in 2010, and my knitting and sewing patterns have been featured in Handmade Living, Craftseller, and Lets Get Crafting Magazines.
