My First Cuddly has been designed to be baby’s first toy. It is small enough to be popped into a pocket or nappy bag, to have on hand when needed.

I would recommend cotton yarn because it’s good for soaking up those dribbles; its “suckable”; chewable and washable! I have also tried a nice soft washable acrylic and this works well too. Very handy for a bit of stash busting or if you want to make a matching blanket for a new baby.

There are four hat options included in the pattern.

The eyes are embroidered in place for safety but if you wish to use safety eyes I would suggest 12mm. As with all my designs the Cuddly is knitted flat and assembled. Included is a very detailed assembly guide full of photos to help you.

All babies have a favourite or special toy they attach to and want for comfort or snuggling down to sleep. How special would it be if your new little person chose your Cuddly as his favourite toy? Perhaps it would be best to make two the same in case one went missing!!

Finished size for the Aran/worsted weight Cuddly is approximately 10 inches/25 cms.

If you wish to use double knit/light weight worsted please use 2.5mm/2US needles. And this measures approximately 8.5 inches/20 cms.
