If we could hang onto only one toy from childhood, chances are that it would be a slightly-tattered, droopy-eared stuffed animal possibly missing an eye or an appendage but with a heartwarming smile still fully intact. Kids love soft cuddly critters, and they are so much more than a toy that doesn’t break or require battery replacements. Stuffies can be pulled, dragged, dropped, or tossed, they keep secrets, never get grumpy or lonely. Other than a sudsy bath once in awhile, a few stitches here and there, they require zero maintenance.
They are a forever friend, immune to the hardships of life, and always ready for a warm hug.
The Sirdar design team has come out with a brand new selection of fun squeezable animals to knit and crochet-
When traveling far from home, this floppy-eared rabbit makes a trusty companion and doesn’t require three meals a day. Look for Sirdar Leaflet #7939 at your lys and knit this fun project in Sirdar Country Style DK col. 395, 648 and 649 (shown above).
There are some things that cannot be found at a toy store and this handmade soft n squishy happy hippo is one of them. Sirdar Leaflet #4761 knit in Snuggly Snowflake DK col. 720 and 644 (shown above).
Take your pick between a magical pony or fairytale unicorn, just the right size for small hands to cherish, complete with button accents, plus a fringed mane and tail. Sirdar Leaflet 4746 crocheted in Sirdar Snuggly Spots DK col 708 or 709 and Snuggly DK col. 443 or 457 (shown above).
