ROMEO is created using just 3 shades of natural alpaca yarn in DK weight. (light worsted/ 8 ply)….
He is 15” tall and therefore his clothes can be swapped with the larger bunnies and bears in the MJT series (useful if you wish to knit them some clothes in DK weight)
All his clothes are removable if needed.
Worked flat on 2 needles.
Additional information is given in regard to yarn economy (e.g if you wish to knit his body and breeches only you will require just 3 x 50g balls of your chosen yarn)
A basic knowledge of colourwork is required if you wish to include the ‘Hearts and Kisses’ panel on the jumper (instructions are given if you wish to knit it in just one shade)
The ‘button’ heart in the ear is created using duplicate stitch (Swiss darning) which is worked over just 6 sts (lots of videos online and it’s very easy!)

He has wooden buttons on his boots and breeches (all details in the pattern) and if you prefer to add teddy eyes rather than embroider I would recommend 7mm size (NB. Neither are suitable if ROMEO is in the vicinity of young children . Please omit them if this is the case)
Further safety information is available in the pattern.
ROMEO is a decorative item.
