This is a fairly simple but extremely fun toy to knit. It works up very quickly in thick yarn, and is easy to assemble. The finished toy is plump and cuddly, and bigger than it seems in the photos. The accessories are definitely worth a little extra knitting time, too. I even included instructions so you can knit the beret in the round, if you prefer.

Correction: What is written as Row 19 of the Body is actually Row 18. Row 19 should just be purled.

Pattern is advanced beginner to intermediate level. Skills required include stockinette, garter, and seed stitches; left and right decreases, m1 increase, bobbles, intarsia, and mattress stitch. All pieces are knit flat, then seamed, stuffed, and assembled.
