Did you know that a group of sloths is called a ‘snuggle’! You can knit a whole cuddly pile of brightly striped sleepy sloths with this new pattern- their long arms and legs means they can also be posed hanging on to a tree branch if you prefer.
We used a ball each of Rico Essentials Mega Wool Chunky in Orange (005) and Lavender (023) but you can use any chunky weight yarn you fancy for these stripy toys (With this recommended yarn you’ll be able to make two sloths, with plenty of Lavender left over) Sloths measure 30cm tall when completed.
You’ll also need:
- 4.5 mm straight knitting needles
- Toy stuffing
- Darning needle
- Sharp sewing needle
- Brown and black felt scraps
- Black cotton
- A pair of 9mm black toy safety eyes with click on backs for each sloth
Knitted flat and using increasing and decreasing to shape, this pattern is suitable for knitters of all levels.
Once you’ve placed your order the pattern will be emailed to you immediately so you can start knitting!
Please note that this is a downloadable pattern NOT a kit.
