King Cole Tinsel Chunky yarn is a fabulous and keenly priced shaggy yarn that creates gorgeous looking toys.
This adorable sloth is 29cm/11.5in long. It has movable ‘yarn joints’ which are easy to work and explained in the pattern, so you can position him in a number of ways.
The sloth is knitted using just a single ball of King Cole Tinsel Chunky in shade Latte 1860. You will also need a small amount of standard chunky/bulky yarn in cream for the face and small amounts of DK/light worsted yarn in black and grey for the nose and the eye surrounds.
As well as the yarn, you’ll need a pair of single-pointed needles in size 5mm/US8 and size 3.25mm/US3. You’ll also need a pair of 10mm black plastic toy eyes and some stuffing.
The pattern is quite straightforward and suitable for adventurous beginners and upwards. The yarn takes a little getting used to but I include some handy tips in the pattern and, unlike some textured yarn, it is actually very easy to undo if you make a mistake.
You are welcome to sell the items you make from this pattern in small amounts at craft fairs or fundraisers – you do not need to ask for special permission but please credit me where possible.
