This quick and simple little pattern is great for using up oddments of leftover yarn and can be used as a pincushion or a toy. You can use any oddments and just need to match your needle size accordingly, for example I’d use 3.75mm needles with Aran weight, 3.25 / 3mm for DK weight and 2.75 / 2.25 mm for 4 ply (use a thinner needle size than recommended on the ball band in order to give a good finish after firmly stuffing.

You can mix yarn weights but it is better to use a thicker yarn for the body and a thinner one for the face and feet. If you don’t have a tweed yarn you could try mixing 2 contrasting strands of leftover yarn to give a tweed effect.

You’ll need approx 12m (14yds) for the main colour, a small amount for the face and feet, a small amount of black yarn for the eyes and nose and some stuffing of your choice.
