Baby Dory is knitted flat and requires seaming, the body and the eyes are stuffed. The tail and fins are double thickness to give stability to the shape and a feeling of quality to the finished product.
Instructions are given for each piece and there is a section at the end to show you how to put everything together.

Materials Required: 2.75mm knitting needles, darning needle, toy stuffing (~20gms) and coloured yarn.

Gauge: Not important, but do ensure to knit tight enough so that the stuffing does not show through on the body and the eyes.

Approximate finished size is 15cm x 12cm
