Use up your yarn scraps for these fun and adorable toys! The pattern includes instructions for a cat, a dog, a pig, and a rabbit. The pattern is beginner to intermediate level, with the more challenging parts being increasing and decreasing, and sewing pieces together. The finished toy is 10-14" tall, depending on your gauge.
These toys can be knit from a single yarn, or from yarn scraps of different colours and/or textures. For the best results, you will need about 30 m of each yarn, and they should all be the same weight. Be sure to have a bit of extra yarn, because the amount you need depends on how many joins you have between yarns.
Cat: 80 m of grey (MC) and 40 m of white (CC) worsted or chunky weight yarn
Dog: 80 m of brown (MC) and 40 m of white (CC) worsted or chunky weight yarn
