wee woodland wuzzies

The new pattern is now available! In the end, we have called it "Wee Woodland Wuzzies" which is a combination of your suggestions, Mr. Mitten's, and a slip of the tongue by me (I had meant to say "Fuzzies" but the alliteration was just too good). You can purchase it on Ravelry and Etsy, and I will add it to Lulu later today (we're on our way to a birthday party, and I've run out of time this morning).

The pattern includes instructions for 6 woodland animals: a squirrel, a mouse, a hare, a hedgehog, an otter, and a fox. The finished toys are about 3" tall, so they're great for little hands, or as decorations. They are all based on the same body pattern, with different heads/ears/tails. Each toy uses small amounts of worsted weight yarn*, so they are great for any scraps you have left from other projects. The patterns for the hat and scarf are also included, and they use fingering or sport weight yarn (if you don't knit socks, hit up one of your knitting buddies for a bit of left-over yarn).


I hope you enjoy this addition to the Fuzzy Mitten family!


As with any new pattern, there may be a few mistakes I've overlooked. Please let me know if you find anything, so I can make corrections to the pattern. 


*I’ve used worsted yarn for the toys because it is common in Canada and the US. The toys could easily be knit from DK, but you would need to go down a needle size for both the toys and the accessories

What do you use for eyes? That look is much more effective than stitched eyes I think. Please post your answer. I am sure lots of people would like to know....or maybe it is in the pattern. I will be buying this. On my way out the door myself.

I used 6 mm safety eyes, which can be a little hard to find, but definitely worth it. If you can't find them locally, check Etsy for safety eyes.
