I love animals and decided to try and knit as many different ones as possible, this started as a koala pattern (would you ever have guessed?) and this is one of the variations! Kids LOVE these toys, my 3 year old niece is always running off with one of my stuffed toys, and at craft fairs i can't keep any in stock! Can be made without the scarf and with fabric paint face to avoid choking hazard for small children. Decorate the back with fabric paint and make it personalized with a name or a heart! Be creative with color and size, make this pattern your own! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on/off knit/purl knit in round increase/decrease GAUGE Cast on 10 and do 10 rows in stockinette stitch (purl a row then knit a row), make sure it is tight enough that stuffing won't go through.
