Top knit tip

To successfully stuff your knitted toy, it is essential that you tease out your stuffing beforehand. This will prevent unsightly lumps and bumps. Take your time. You need to strike the perfect balance between over and under stuffing, so don’t be afraid to start again if your toy doesn’t sit right. Finally, make use of a smaller needle, to help you to reach awkward areas such as the arms and feet.
