Here’s our latest shipment of worry monsters for Knit for Nowt! They all feature a missing limb – by Clare’s request in the case of the crochet ones, and because there were only enough fabric strips and felt hands/feet pre-cut for three limbs each in the case of the sewn ones!
There’s a strong demand for these modified therapy dolls to represent limb loss, disability, or the marks of physical abuse.
Phyllis is on a pants-knitting kick. Even the large pattern only takes a couple of hours to make and just about any spare DK yarn will do. I think these were all made with Sirdar Snuggly – one of our very favourite yarns, so soft and easy to knit with, but way too pricey to use for the bigger makes.
