There’s something about crinkly material that babies just love. I think it might have something to do with learning cause and effect: babies perform an action (squeeze the toy) and they observe that something (the crinkly sound) happens. Crinkly toys are everywhere these days, but now you can knit a little Crinkle Square to coordinate with other knitted items for the baby in your life.
This cheeky chap was a sell out success at Yarndale and The Knitting and Stitching show and is knitted flat using brown chunky yarn. His sparkly red breast is knitted separately and sewn on after the body has been sewn together.
