I designed and made this knitted hamburger toy for my cousin’s two year old daughter, Little E. It has a bun (top and bottom), patty, cheese slice, tomato, and lettuce leaf. Little E enjoys naming the pieces, assembling the burger components, and taking the burger apart again!

Each piece takes a small amount of yarn: about 30 yards ( m) for the bun, 15 yards (9 m) for the patty, 10 yards (6 m) for the tomato, and 5 yards (3 m) each for the lettuce and cheese.

Gauge is not important. Use a washable aran or heavy worsted weight yarn and smaller than usual needles so that the stuffing doesn’t show through the stitches.

ERRATA: Round 22 of the patty section is missing and should read: k2, k2tog - rep to end
Round 24 of the patty section should say “k2tog” rather than “kfb” as you are decreasing rather than increasing.

Thanks to Ravelers christinedesjardi and Marjie2 for the errata tips!
