Tubby Tiger
  0 customer reviews

This adorable, cuddly tiger pattern is knit with DK weight yarn held doubled (worsted weight yarn can be substituted and held single stranded) to make a hardwearing cuddly toy just perfect for snuggling.
Two sets of instructions are provided: work the body in the round and sew on the chest at the end if you prefer a simpler knit, or, choose intarsia in the round for a more challenging knit that reduces finishing to attaching the head and embroidering the face.
The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the intarsia of the body.
This pattern would suit intermediate knitters and is a perfect opportunity to learn some new skills. Techniques used include the (optional) intarsia in the round (fully explained in the pattern), short rows, jogless stripes, and the Turkish cast on. Links to useful tutorials are provided for each technique.

Some colors used in the sample are no longer available; we have made similar color suggestions in the yarn calculator below.
