Product Details

This crab is a lot of fun and wants to play and pinch you all day long! It will be a wonderful cushion in your bed or your kid‘s best friend. Make it from any yarn, sock weight for a pocket sized crab or thicker for cushion size, use up leftovers and mix and match colours as you like to make a unique companion.

Following techniques are used:

  • knit in the round (on double pointed needles or cable needle)
  • simple increases and decreases
  • short rows (explanation and photo tutorial are given)
  • grafting / kitchener stitch
  • picking up stitches (optional. You can also knit parts separately and sew on later, if you prefer)

What you need:

  • Depending on the size you want to achieve you’ll need either a handfull of sock weight yarn leftovers (about 40grams) or more if you use thicker yarns.
  • Knitting needles (dpns or circulars, whatever you prefer) matching your yarn.
  • Fiberfill depending on the crab’s size
  • two stitch markers
  • Tapestry needle
