The new version of Scraps Chaps will be released April 21, 2017. Please join the KAL in my Ravlery group!
The second version of the pattern, with cat, dog, rabbit, and pig, is shown in the first 5 photos. The original pattern is shown in the last picture.
The pattern includes directions for all four animals: a cat, a dog, a pig, and a rabbit. These toys can be knit from a single yarn, or from yarn scraps of different colours and/or textures. For the best results, you will need at least 30 m of each yarn, and they should all be the same weight. Be sure to have a bit of extra yarn, because the amount you need depends on how many joins you have between yarns.
Cat: 80 m of grey (MC) and 40 m of white (CC) worsted or chunky weight yarn
Dog: 80 m of brown (MC) and 40 m of white (CC) worsted or chunky weight yarn
Pig: 120 m of light pink (MC) worsted or chunky weight yarn
Rabbit: 120 m of light brown (MC) worsted or chunky weight yarn
