Pets bring so much enjoyment to our lives, but if you can't have a pet at home, you could knit one instead.  These furry friend knits are guaranteed to be cuddled for years to come.

You can use different colours to make the toy look more like your own pet, or get experimental with Swiss darning to add patches of colour on your toy.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, sew seams, and embroider the noses.

FINISHED SIZE: Fido the dog and Fifi the cat are 22cm tall (sitting)
