These Lil’ Hugkins are knit in the round, using Magic Loop or double pointed needles. The legs, body, “arms” and head are all knit on as you go along. The jacket is removable. They sit approx. 6” tall (without ears) and are created using #3-light wt. (DK wt.) yarn. These Lil’ Hugkins are perfect friends for little hands and make darling craft table items!
