An easy to follow, delightful pattern for your very own family of meerkats! The meerkats are made from Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake yarn, which gives them such a cute and cuddly appearance. However, alternative DK/Light Worsted (8ply) yarns can be used, so please feel free to use up what’s in your stash and I would love to see your finished creations.

The meerkat’s feet, body and head are knitted in one piece, and the arms are knitted into a row, so there’s very little sewing to do to make up your meerkat; which is always a bonus! All pieces are knitted flat on straight needles and the pattern has clear row by row instructions and lots of photographs to help you along the way. You will need to be able to knit, purl, cast on and off, increase and decrease, and sew seams.

Everyone loves meerkats, so why not make a special gift for a friend or relative. I’m giving ‘Maurice’ to my mum for Mother’s Day and my daughter Hannah can’t wait to get her hands on the full set. She loves knitting too and she’s currently knitting a scarf for Mimi the Baby Meerkat.
