Larry is a friendly lobster with giant claws to wave hello! If you knit your lobster in machine washable yarn the kids can also play with him at bath-time.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the lobster and 8 photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the little legs and feelers which are i-cord pieces knitted on two double pointed needles (DPNs). You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, kfb increase, decreases, sewing seams, and knit i-cord.


  • A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
  • 2 x 3.5mm DPNs to make the i-cord pieces (US 4)
  • Double knitting yarns (DK or light worsted weight) in pink and white; less than 50g in each colour
  • Toy filling
  • Beads for the eyes
