Tums wants to be your friend because he thinks you will give him candy. (But don’t do it! Candy makes his tummy ache.)

This pattern consists of straight and circular knitting, so straight and double-pointed needles are required.
Finished size (after felting and stuffing): approx. 8” tall

You’ll need:
Worsted weight, feltable wool yarn, such as Elann.com Peruvian Highland Wool (different weight yarn will also work, with needle size adjustment) in 2 colors; 2 balls (or
about 125 meters) of the main color are required
Size 6 US (4.0 mm) straight and double-pointed needles
Tapestry needle
Embroidery thread and needle or beads for eyes
Polyfil for stuffing
Standard washer and dryer for felting
