Teddy Boo, Mouse and Bunny Boo are all good friends, their cheeky little faces peek-a-boo out from their sweaters.

These little characters are very quick and easy to knit and sew up, they make great stash busters.

Each Boo is knitted flat on two needles. and is worked in one piece starting at the head. Simple shaping is used through-out (knit two together or knit front and back)

The arm stitches are held on stitch holders until the body and legs are completed. Then slipped back onto the needles to knit each arm.

The ribbed collar can either be knitted into the toy by picking up stitches at the sweater neck or you can knit the ribbing separately and sew the collar in place during making up. Thicker yarn will give a bigger Boo, thinner yarn will give a smaller Boo!

I give full illustrated making up instructions to help you finish your new Boo friends.

Each Boo is 12cm /4.5” tall measured from feet to top of their heads

I used Stylecraft Special Knit DK in the following shades:-

Mocha 1064, Cream 1005, Sherbet 1034,
Apricot1026, and Citron 1263

Any DK Yarn (Light Worsted) yarn is suitable.

You can use other weights of yarn – thinner yarn will give a smaller toy, thicker yarn a larger toy. Use needles one size smaller than those recommended for your choice of yarn.

10g each of body and sweater shade DK yarn
Approx. 5g of pink yarn for Mouse Boo
Approx. 5 g white yarn for Bunny Boo Tail
