Sand dollars are really interesting creatures. They are related to sea urchins. I had not heard of them, until it was suggested that I add a sand dollar christmas decoration to my collection. I thought that was such a good idea, and they do have some religious symbolism which you can read about on my blog.

You can knit a sand dollar in either 4ply or DK wool. They do require some sewing up, and like many of my patterns a little embroidery. I did try hard to avoid the seams and sewing, but it did seem it was the only way to get my sand dollars looking realistic.
