This pattern is the perfect way to turn your yarn scraps into unique and adorble toys! The pattern includes directions for all four animals: a cat, a dog, a pig, and a rabbit. These toys can be knit from a single yarn, or from yarn scraps of different colours and/or textures. The toys can also be knit in two sizes (10 and 14"), simply by using either worsted weight or chunky weight yarns. If you'd like to dress up your toys, check out my Breton Shore Outfit.
The pig and rabbit are experienced-beginner level, while the cat and dog are intermediate level because they require some basic intarsia. All the pieces are knit flat, then seamed and assembled.
