PATTERN DETAILS

For times when life is too much and you are feeling in despair, what could cheer you up more than a cuddle from a cute fuzzy koala bear? You needn't go down under to experience his charms, you can make him up in your favorite worsted weight yarns! With his big fuzzy ears, and large button eyes, he knows just what to do to make your spirits rise. He will keep your ears warm, your wrists and fingers too, as all he wants to do is cuddle with you! "Care to Cuddle" can be other fuzzy things, as an Owl he will enlighten you with the wisdom he brings! Just remember as you come out of despair, "Care to Cuddle" wants to be shared! Enjoy! This hat and mitten set comes in Girls and Adult sizes! The pattern includes instructions for eyes, ears, and noses (for the owl version), which are all knitted. The hat is knit using a circular needle, while the mittens are knit on dpns. Please note that instructions are given for the Koala mitten style and does not include instructions for knitting individual fingers like the Owl gloves pictured, though you can learn how to do that in "Be My Valentine" which is part of the "Follow Your Heart Collection"! "Care to Cuddle" is part of the "Follow Your Heart" Collection, a collection of 7 lovely Girly Knits patterns for only $20!
