Benjy and Bo are cheeky little scamps, they are always ready for fun and games!

Benjy is dressed in dungarees and likes to wear his cap backwards on his head. Bo is dressed in shorts and a t-shirt, he tries to wear his cap the right way around, but it always seems to end up crooked!

Benjy and Bo are knitted flat from the top down, simple shaping is used through-out.
This pattern is suitable for new knitters who want a small challenge.

I have included placement stitches to take the guess work out of positioning the eyes.
also instructions for embroidered eyes as an alternative to safety eyes.
