This pattern is available for free.

This is Bob. Bob’s shape was inspired by the plastic thing that floats in your toilet tank. He’s not an elephant, or an anteater. He’s just Bob!

As a summertime knit, Bob is made of cool nylon yarn, but you can make him out of almost any yarn you like. The pattern is knitted in the round on double-pointed needles.

Size 7 (4.5 mm) double-pointed needles
Additional items needed:
Stitch marker
Tapestry needle
Plastic eyes or dark-colored yarn for embroidered eyes (Use the latter option if you’re knitting for a small child.)
Polyfill stuffing
Finished size: approx. 6 inches long (including snout)
