These cute little monsters are ready to share hugs with everyone. With their arms held open wide they are a sweet way to send a special hug to anyone who needs one! Choose between a sun hat or a cap or maybe make both so they can change their look! They are knitted flat in one piece, with very little seaming. Simple shaping is used through-out (knit two together or knit front and back) Hugglings are knitted from the feet up, you will knit two legs then join them before knitting the body- I explain row by row how to do this. The arm stitches are held on stitch holders until the body is completed. Then slipped back onto the needles to knit each arm. The sun hat has a cute little flower decoration and the cap has a simple peak knitted and sewn into place. Hugglings are a quick and easy knitting project suitable for confident beginner knitters. Full clear making up instructions guide you through the sewin gup of your huggling. Instructions for embroidered eyes are included.

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
