Orangutan Soft Toy Knitting Pattern

The Orangutan soft toy knitting pattern makes a super cute Orangutan plush teddy character, perfect for ape lovers and a great to make for your little monkeys.

The Orangutan is knitted with Stylecraft Special DK yarn and King Cole Moments yarn which gives that lovely hairy look.

The knitted toy is about 22cm tall and about 25cm wide. She is fixed in a seated position with her legs, but her arms are loose to express how she's feeling and to give hugs. She is very adorable and looks so cute when her arms are in human like poses.

Orangutan soft toy knitting pattern started out life as a tea cosy knitting pattern, and when you buy and download the pattern you will receive the instructions to make both the Orangutan soft toy and the tea cosy, so you could have lots of apes about the house. The Orangutan tea cosy fits a medium sized tea pot that covers a Teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints.

Its a great project to knit, looks amazing and brings lots of joy.

The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting her very soon!

I design and knit unique tea cosies. I really love designing exciting and unusual tea cosies, its great fun and people don’t mind having an over the top tea cosy. Plus they are a great talking point at tea time and make for brilliant knitting projects.

I have quite a following with regular customers who regularly buy my latest designs from my website TeaCosyFolk.co.uk

I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
