Share some cuddly love by making a Cotton Koala for your nearest and dearest! This pattern was specifically designed for the Ravelry group Aussies Knitting for War-Affected Kids, and is FREE for anyone to make, give, share and love.

I would rate this pattern as being more for an advanced beginner. Any previous toy-making experience will be a bonus, but even if you’ve never knitted toys before, this pattern will guide you through step-by-step, with plenty of pictures and links to helpful resources.

Cotton Koala is knit flat on straight needles and seamed afterwards, with embroidered facial details added after the head is stuffed and sewn.
