I've been promising my Australian friends this design for a long time! Kimmy is a tubby koala, sewn in the sitting position; he measures 15 inches/39 cms approximately. His tummy measures 18 inches/46 cms. He has elbows and thumbs. I promise these are very easy to create, I use increases and decreases, not short rows. Kimmy is knitted flat and assembled. He can be knitted with any worsted weight/Aran yarns. I have tried eyelash, boa, fleecy yarns such as Snowflake and Pipsqueak, Phildar Phil Douce or soft chenille. This pattern includes a detailed step-by-step guide; full of photos and tips to help you assemble your koala. Print warning: It may be best to print just the knitting directions and save the step-by-step guide to refer to as and when necessary on screen or it will drink your printer ink and eat your paper!! Please note this listing is for an instant downloadable knitting pattern, not a physical item.

I learnt the art of knitting when I was about 5 years old. Even at that age I was never happy to follow a pattern, always wanting to try something different. After a shoulder injury I found I couldn't knit anything heavy and out of sheer boredom I found myself knitting a bear. I didn't like the finished bear and thought I could do better myself so after a lot of frustrating frogging Huggable Bear was born. I love creating these bears and other animals, or should I say watching them create themselves, no two are ever alike.
