Geometric Shapes are Fun!

I don’t know what it is about Jess Hutch’s creations…but they make me smile every time I see them.

Here’s my Squarey from her PATTERN BOOKLET
none

Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Worsted
Needles: US8
Finished Dimensions: he’s stuffed with a 12″x12″ pillow form

Jess uses “safety eyes” for her dolls but I was far too lazy to go and find some so I embroidered on the eyes. I actually like the effect…it kind of looks like he has eyelashes. But other than that…this little guy is to her pattern. I highly recommend making Squarey. Besides being a ridiculously easy and quick knit, he’s really rather charming and great to snuggle with or prop up your arm whilst knitting.

My one tip to you if you make Squarey: Don’t forget to remove the tag from the pillow form BEFORE you seam up the doll. Not that I did that of course. Never mind that crunching noise you hear when you squeeze him.

    Squarey is perfect…I love his colors! I bought the booklet from Jess but I haven’t let myself start anything yet…I have to get those Christmas scarves done first!
