G’day mate! When we dream of Australia, we love to think of sunshine, amazing wildlife and happy travels, and this cuddly little koala brings all this to life. Outback Ossie is lots of fun to knit, and his cute accessories and friendly face give him heaps of personality.
If you would prefer not to stiffen the hat, then stuff lightly and sew to head around the base of hatband.
Though the hat is an essential part of the ensemble you could get away with buying a ready-made one and just adding the knitted corks. We think the whole set is adorable, from Ossie’s fluffy ears to his poseable fingers and toes. What a beaut!
