This toy kangaroo mum has a baby joey who is big enough to jump around on his own, but small enough to be carried in mum's pouch when he's tired! I modeled them on the Eastern grey kangaroos who visit us, here in Queensland, Australia. I had to make some adaptations to reality – them being toys and needing big fat feet to stand up etc.
The toys are knitted on 2 needles, in 8 ply/DK yarn of your choice. You could use a reddish brown if you wanted them to be red kangaroos. They take between 85 and 100 gms of main colour, plus 5 gms pale pink for inside the ears (for mum & joey).
The Australian bushfire fundraising campaign, for aiding affected wildlife, has now ended.
In total, the 6 patterns involved raised AU$1,610 – a fantastic result!
Thank you to everyone who contributed by purchasing a pattern.❤️
