Come and meet the Hairy Hugster gang.

Spingle, Stu, Bob, Mo and Flo are all quick and easy to knit using basic stitches and shaping.

All 5 felt mini monsters live together in a happy muddle.
Whatever happens they know a hug and a cuddle will make everything feel ok!

These cute little monster designs are knitted in pure, hand wash wool and then transformed by an exciting ride in your washing machine into soft strong felted toys. (Please do be aware that these are felted and so need to be knitted in a hand wash only wool yarn)

My clear and detailed pattern shows you how to make all 5 characters in 7 pages of fully illustrated instructions which guide you step by step, through knitting, sewing up, felting and creating the hair and faces of all the hairy hugsters.

I guide you every step of the way so you can easily create your own felted monster companions.
