Yes, you are seeing that correctly. This is a knitted pocket Sasquatch AND Yeti kit. Yup, you get the supplies you need to make both a Big Foot and his cold-weather cousin, a Yeti. Amazeballs, right? We know. We knew you would love it!

These tiny mythical creatures 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!). Just imagine a lumberjack themed birthday party where all of the guests get to take home a little bigfoot! You can also use the pattern to make any color and multiple sizes of Squatches and Yetis, depending on what weight yarn you use. This would make the best camping knitting project ever, by the way. And think of how much better hide and seek is going to be with these little friends! Like you are even reading this far since you have already put this pattern in your cart and purchased it!

Gauge: You pick! Simply knit with your choice of yarn on needles 2-3 sizes smaller than called for to get a tight knit fabric your stuffing won't show through.

Needles: You pick! A 40" or longer circular needle (for Magic Loop Method) in a size right for your yarn, plus one additional needle for three needle bind off. See the pattern for more info.

Notions: Scissors, tapestry needle, beginning of the round stitch marker (removable or closed), optional row counter, 10 removable stitch markers, stuffing, and a set of safety eyes (or other eye choice such as buttons or scrap yarn for embroidery). You can use stitch holders, or an additional any length circular needle, or 2 dpn’s for the legs. 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 patterns! 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

Finished size: Your finished size will depend on what weight yarn you use.
