PATTERN DETAILS

I designed this package to match up with the Midi Cuddles Blankies. Think how lovely it would be to gift a Cuddles Blankie with a matching toy. The leg/body pieces for all character are the same stitch/row count. The lamb has it's own directions as he is mostly knitted in garter stitch. 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. The eyes are embroidered; I have included details in the step-by-step assembly guide to help you. You could of course use safety eyes; I would suggest 15mm in size. Yarn Suggestions: I have used Drops Paris cotton Aran and Lily's Sugar and Cream solids. Both of these yarns have a lovely array of colour choices. For the stripy cats I used Canon Simply Soft Camo, (Snow and Woodland).

If you wish to use ribbons and adornments please ensure they are stitched securely in place.

Huggable Bears
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.
