Pattern Description:

Wensleydale is a quick-to-knit buddy for Cheddar, the CraftLit critter.

Knit with 30yds or so, Wensleydale is a great way to use up leftover sock yarn. And you can knit him in one night.

DO NOT use safety eyes if you're going to let your cat have at him, though. Embroidery would be safer for all involved.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 3" (give or take)


  • US 0 - 2.0 mm dpn,

You Will Also Need:
