Toys from the Toybox Part II
After publishing Toys from the Toybox I had a lot of requests for more characters. Hence the need to publish a Part II to the Toybox.
In this set we have Bunny; Cub Bear; Donkey; Elephant; and Puppy, all stand at 11 inches/28cms.
If these are being given to a baby I would suggest knitting these with nice soft cotton Aran/worsted weight yarn but I have had great results using acrylic and wool yarns too.
For an older child/adult of course you can use a variety of textured, furry/fuzzy yarns. There are so many readily available today that we are quite spoilt for choice. Please see yarn suggestions below to see what I have already tried.
If you wish to use double knit please lower your needle size to 3mm/3US. Your character will be a little smaller.
The eyes are embroidered; I have included details in the step-by-step assembly guide to help you. You could of course use safety eyes; I would suggest 15mm in size.

Very, very easy pattern to follow, excellently written, extremely excellent pattern.
I do like this yarn but I'm concerned about the number of joins in a 50 gram ball.
