Egyptian Mummy is a terrifying/cute undead creature to knit for Halloween. His arms can be positioned reaching out to catch/cuddle you or pointing down by his sides.

Egyptian Mummy is knit flat and if using Cascade 220 yarn and 3.5mm needles is approximately 32cm (12.5 inches) tall. If you use a different yarn and/or needles the size may differ.

You will need:

  • Cascade 220 yarn: approximately 55g of Black (8555) and a small amount of Christmas Red (8895).
  • 3.5mm (US 4) knitting needles.
  • A stitch holder.
  • Toy stuffing.
  • A tapestry needle.
  • 10m of Hemline 6mm white cotton tape. If you can’t get Hemline you can use any brand but Hemline tape has a rough, ‘bandagey’ texture.
  • A black teabag.
  • A sharp sewing needle and tea-coloured thread, such as Gutermann col. 5.
  • Optional: pins.
  • Optional: Fray Check.

Techniques you should be familiar with before using this pattern:

  • Knit and purl.
  • Increases and decreases.
  • Sewing seams using mattress stitch.
