Cute enough to cuddle, and silly enough to make even the biggest grumpypants smile…. It’s the squatchie! Or baby Sasquatch, or li’l Yeti, or… You name it! Bring him camping with you – bring him to the beach – just please bring him somewhere – he loves to travel!
This kit arrives in a cute box with full color photo finish, instructions, tools and yarn to complete your project. It can be sent directly to someone as a gift with a complimentary hand-written note - just let me know in the messages when you check out. Box may vary, depending on what boxes I have in stock.
*** This is a KNITTING PATTERN/KIT and NOT a finished product. *** I do sell customizable or ready-made hand knit squatchies as well; please check my shop for that specific listing. Also look for the yeti squatchie kit listed in my shop! His fluffy snowy cousin.
Here's some more info about the pattern:

Its okay with me if you sell the completed squatchie, but please credit me as the designer and give a link to my shop. Share the love! And its never okay to just give this pattern to someone, or to photocopy it... tsk tsk... have them support a stay-home mom and tell them where they can buy their copy...But you already knew that, so thanks!
Please refer to http://www.knittinghelp.com/. They have wonderful free YouTube videos readily available. There are some amazing knitting books at your local library as well.
There are absolutely no returns on patterns or kits once they are purchased, no exceptions, so please make sure you understand that you are buying a KNITTING PATTERN/KIT in this listing and not the actual toy itself.
Thanks, and happy knitting!
I'm planning on knitting this while on vacation in a few weeks. Then my best friend will get a real forest Bigfoot. Very happy with kit.
