This pattern is for stuffed toys, Fred and Murgatroy. Murgatroy is what my son thinks an alien from Mercury would look like.

This body is knit flat, with as little seeming as possible. Arms and feet are written to be knitted either flat or in the round. The choice is yours.

Gauge and yarn is not terribly important. Just make sure to use a needle a few sizes smaller then recommended on the ball bad. You can use up anything in your stash! What a fun way to do it. Each toy uses a minimal amount of yarn.

Skills used:
SS = stockinette stitch
kfb = knit front and back
ssk = slip slip knit
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
p2tog = purl 2 stitches together

So what are you waiting for? Grab some needles and yarn and make one today!
