In the ever-evolving spirit of knitting the peculiar, here is a pair of new amigurumi critters for you to knit and enjoy. These colorful and cuddly reptilians make lovely childrens’ toys or unusual ephemera for the plush collector. Whether you are knitting these up for a special friend or for yourself, you will surely find that this project challenges and tickles your knitting sensibilities.

This pattern includes detailed, easy-to-read instructions for knitting up your squishy chameleons, both adult and juvenile incarnations. Comprehensive and clear, it is complete with informative technical notes and crisp photographic illustrations. Additional assistance is available via e-mail consultation.

Required technical skills include increases (M1R, M1L, KLL, KRL, YO), decreases (SSK, K2tog, P2tog-tbl, P2tog, Sl2-K1-P2SSO), short rows, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, and grafting. This pattern is recommended for the intermediate- or experienced-level knitter.

When worked in worsted weight yarn, the finished dimensions for your creatures will be approximately 4” by 6” (10 cm x 15 cm) for the juvenile chameleon and 8” by 12” (20 cm x 30 cm) for the adult.
