PATTERN DETAILS

This toy uses stitches with different textures to stimulate the development of a baby's tactile sense, which is very important in the early months. It exploits the self-striping pattern of the yarn as a cue to change stitch patterns. The project is a sampler of some classic and very basic stitch patterns: stockinet, garter, seed, 11 rib, but it also uses more complex techniques - bobbles and loops/fur stitch. This pattern is not written in the style where each little step and stitch is written out and explained. It leaves room for experiment and imagination. Please read carefully through the whole pattern before starting the project. This pattern is not meant to serve beginner knitters. However, if you are a beginner that likes challenges and happily plunges into unknown waters, I'd be glad to help. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl GAUGE 30 sts =10 cm/ 4 in 8 rounds in stockinet or seed stitch gives 1 stripe of colour (2cm/0.8in wide) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS circumference - 12 cm / 4.7 in, length - 30 cm / 11.8 in.

I have been knitting and crocheting since being a child. Very early I started tweaking the patterns or improvising, but it's only in the past few years that I started feeling I have something to share with the rest of the knitting and crocheting community.
