The pattern includes instructions for a squirrel, a mouse, a hedgehog, a hare, a otter, and a fox. Each of these tiny and adorable animals can be knit with scraps of yarn. None take more than 15-20 g, although the colours and amounts depend on the animal. They knit up in an hour or two, and take another hour or so to assemble and finish. The pattern also includes instructions for a scarf and hat, knit with fingering weight yarn. They make perfect last minute gifts for kids and friends, and are also great for decorating! These toys are also a good way to learn new knitting skills, because they are small, forgiving of mistakes, and take a minimum of materials.
