Backyard Bandits is a set of animals in my popular Scraps Chaps style. This pattern includes instructions for a badger, a deer, a fox, and a raccoon. There is also a bonus Roasted Chicken pattern, in case your animals need a snack. The smaller size is knit from worsted weight yarn, and makes a toy about 10” tall. The larger size is knit from chunky yarn, and makes a toy about 15” tall. Both sizes are knit from the same instructions. The knitted kerchief shown on the toys is from the Breton Shore Outfit.

 

The pattern is intermediate level. All the toys require intarsia, and the chicken uses bobbles.
