Oh man, there is just something about sloths, isn't there? We here at Wicked Chickens find them absolutely delightful, so we knew that we needed to make a knitted sloth that fits in your pocket. Because, seriously? Could anything be more awesome than a knitted sloth that fits in your pocket? Nope. And you know exactly what we are talking about.
These lazy, little sloths are perfect to give as gifts, or even to make up as party favors (if you can manage to part with the adorableness once you are finished!). Our Pocket Sloth kit comes packaged in an adorable orange cupcake box, complete with a handle on top, and would make a delightful gift for you knitting friend, too. These sloths were designed with holes in their arms so that you can thread one hand through the opposite arm and make your sloth hang wherever you want! Plus this is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself making a whole houseful of little knitted sloths! Imagine hiding small, knitted, upside down hanging sloths around your house. So adorable. You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of sloth, depending on what weight yarn you use as illustrated in the last photo. We know, you didn't think this kit could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of sloth. That "Buy Now" button is right there up to your right...
This kit is packed with pure awesomeness and includes the materials you need to knit 2 small sloths in the round:
Intermediate Knitting Pattern with download link for the pdf version of the pattern
100% Wool Fingering Weight Yarn in 3 colors
Two sets of 6mm safety eyes
Two 10mm safety noses
All you will need to complete your slow friend is a US Size 1 (2.25 mm) circular needle, a tapestry needle, 8 removable stitch markers, and scissors! If you want to get fancy you can also use two US size 1 double pointed needles for I-cord, but they're totally optional. If you are a tighter knitter you might be more comfortable using US Size 2 (2.75mm) needles instead. Please note we do offer that you can add a set of stitch markers in a small tin to your kit for only $6. These markers are perfect for our small fingering kits! It includes 24 removable markers and 4 closed, snag-free shaped markers for the beginning of the round all in a cute little tin. You can see the tin of markers listing here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/611982215/wicked-chickens-yarn-stitch-marker-set?ref=shop_home_active_1
The toes can either be knitted as small 2 stitch i-cords which though they look great, can be fiddly. There is also an option to do the ends of the legs in cream instead to do the toes. You can see the two toe options in the second to last photo.
Finished sloths are approximately 1.75" tall and 4" long.
The kit will come complete with a printed version of the pattern, but there will also be a download code on your pattern for the pdf version of the pattern. The download is through Ravelry.com, but you do not need a ravelry account to download the pattern. The pattern is designed by author and designer Rebecca Danger, known for her whimsical monster and creature knitting patterns.
*****Please note, you will not receive the finished items shown in this listing, only the materials to create them yourself (or give to your crafty friends).*****
