From a galaxy far, far away…

These cute little alien puffs are lost and far away from their home but they like earth so much they decided to hang out for awhile. :)

Marvin and Marsha short little projects that won’t take very long to do and each puff takes about 55-60 yards of worsted weight yarn in the main color. Both are constructed the same but you make them special by customizing their expressions and hair!

A Note about the Gauge: It is not important for this pattern! The goal is for you to get a dense material so that the stuffing doesn’t peak through. So you’ll need to go down a few needle sizes from what your yarn recommends. I used worsted weight, which recommends a 7-9, so I used a 5. But you use the size needle that gives you the fabric you want with the yarn you are using.

Sample Information:
