PATTERN DETAILS

A dear friend in US has been asking me to design a rat for a couple of years. Not being a rat lover I put her off but eventually I decided to give it a go. I'm very pleased with has sweet this little rattie work out, still not a rat lover, but getting there! Little Rattie stands just 9 inches/23cms (approximately) tall. He is knitted flat and assembled and has a choice of a tutu or little vest to keep him warm. He has whiskers and embroidered eyes, full directions are included to create these. You could of course use toy safety eyes, I would advise 8 or 10mm. If these are being given to a baby I would suggest knitting these with nice soft cotton Aran/worsted weight yarn but I have had great results using acrylic and wool yarns too. For an older child/adult of course you can use a variety of textured, furry/fuzzy yarns. There are so many readily available today that we are quite spoilt for choice. Please see yarn suggestions below to see what I have already tried. If you wish to use double knit please lower your needle size to 3mm/3US. Your character will be a little smaller.

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.
