The Aliens in PJ were created for the summer reading program in our local library. This year theme is “A Universe of Stories” and I wanted to knit a bunch of Aliens, while using up remnants of my stash yarn.

Finished Toy Size: 6.5” (16.5 cm) tall.

Yarn: Worsted weight yarn.
Approximately 50 yards (46 meters) total for PJ (I used remnants of cotton yarn I had in my stash)
Approximately 30 yards (27.5 meters) of MC (I used Universal Yarn Cool Baby; 90% Cotton, 10% Nylon; 140 yards (126 meters) per 3.5 oz ( 100g); Nr. 106 Green Monster)
Approximately 5 yards (4.5 meters) black yarn.

This is a great project to use up remnants of stash yarn.
The gauge for this project is not important. The size of your alien may vary depending on the yarn and the needles you use. Make sure that your knitting is tight enough for stuffing to not to show through. Make stripes of 2 rounds in each color, or use up small remnants of stash yarn.
The Alien in PJ is knit in the round, starting at the bottom of the body. The eyes are knit separately and sewn on top of its head.
