Karl and Karla Koala
These two baby Koalas are quite alike as peas in a pod. This pattern makes a boy or a girl just by changing the accent color and the position of the bow. Karla likes to wear her pretty pink bow to show off her lovely fluffy ears, while Karl, who is a bit of a snappy dresser, likes to wear a blue bow tie.
With yummy eucalyptus snack sticks included in the pattern it's no wonder these two little scamps are always smiling :-)
When made with light worsted weight (DK/8 ply) yarn and a size D (3.25mm) hook Koalas measure approx. 9" (23cm) tall.
Use other yarn weights and hook sizes to make different sizes.
This pattern is written in American crochet terminology and includes a handy stitch conversion chart so you can translate to British crochet terms instead should you wish to.
