MORTIMER PUPPY TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
Mortimer is a cuddly little puppy, and knitted in soft and fluffy alpaca yarn.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the puppy and photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colours at the ends of a row (knit stripes) and sew seams.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- Alpaca Double Knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight) in cream and brown; I used Stylecraft Alpaca DK
- Toy filling
- Beads for eyes and a small amount of grey yarn to embroider the nose
