Knit a Squarey

The allure of Jess Hutchinson’s knit toy designs (Rav link) is that they are simple, yet so cute.  Take Squarey for instance:

Two 12 x 12 squares, sewn together with arms and legs, eyes and mouth around a pillow form:  An anthropomorphic pillow doll!  Squarey is a gift for my niece V, who just celebrated her 2nd birthday.  V also just got a baby sister – Baby Lulu was born on Friday!  That means I am auntie 4x over, and I just love it!  Hopefully V will be willing to share Squarey doll with her sister when they cuddle up to read or watch a movie.

I used some sample yarns that I received from the good people at Red Heart -Debbie Stoller’s Stitch Nation Washable Ewe worsted weight wool, and a few worsted weight scraps of my own to make Squarey’s stripes.  Arms and legs are filled with bamboo polyfill.  Squarey is soft and comfy and after making him, I kind of want one of my own now. Would make a nice computer chair pillow!

    Oh my goodness! I just wanna reach through the computer and give Squarey a hug. I’m guessing that Squarey will be much loved by your niece.
