I knitted a Moose! And I am pretty excited about it. This was originally published in The Forest issue of Making Magazine and my contribution is the funniest, roundest little moose all wrapped up in a snuggly pine tree sweater. I love the shape and feel of this toy, it is charming and huggable.
The construction for both the Moose and the sweater is seamless and from the bottom-up. I knit the toy at an ever-so-slightly looser gauge to make it extra-squishy for snuggling. The antlers make the moose come together for a darling finishing touch.
Moose: 8” / 20.5 cm tall when seated, including antlers
Sweater: 4” / 10 cm long, 12” / 30.5 cm body circumference
