Perfect for taking a nap, reading a book, playing with toys or just snuggling--the Toddler Teepee is perfect for indoor or outside play. The sample is made in a rainbow of colors but you could make it in your little one’s favorite colors or to match their bedroom or playspace. I also decided to make it with Red Heart Super Saver yarn as it is affordable, durable for play and has a superb color selection. I purchased the six dowels at my local Home Depot ($1.67 each), lashed the tops with twine and draped the cover over the frame--fastening it at the top with pom-adorned ties worked as part of the border.
Size: preschool/toddler ages 2-4
(Instructions for making the teepee larger are not included in the pattern, although it would be possible by adding rows as written. Consider that the cover will be much heavier and thus require longer and thicker poles for support. Also, adjustments will be required at the tent top depending on the size of poles used. Making the teepee smaller would be much easier--say for dollies, stuffed animals, or even a cat!)

The pattern includes:
~~a complete list of materials--including the colors of yarn used in the sample and the dowel dimensions
~~stitch abbreviations, special stitches used, and a notes section
~~pictures to walk you through the stitch used, placement diagram and how to lash your poles
~~complete written instructions (US crochet terms)

Skill Level:

~8 colors of yarn (or those of your choice)--1 skein of each
~H (5mm) hook
~6 48in (122cm) long 7/16” thick dowels
