Hello there wonderful friends!
Because we have a veggie garden AND because slugs LOVE our lettuce patch, I felt I just had to knit up a sweet little slimy slug with needle felted eyes that pop up out at you when you least expect it…
I cannot tell you how many times I have picked a lettuce and right inside the innermost folds of lettuce leaves, where you would least expect to find any living thing, will be a complete family of slugs with an extended family to boot… so they are like part of the family here…
This is really the easiest little pattern in the world, promise:) and will be great to add to your Easter baskets for Easter morning too:)
DK yarn in sluggy colours
2 double pointed needles
Wool sewing up needle
Fleece for stuffing
Fleece for the eyes, black and white
Felting needle and sponge
With double pointed needles cast on 7 stitches, knit an I-cord for 3 inches and cast off. Stuff your slug with fleece and finish off the ends.
Knit about 5 rows for the length of the eye stalks and then cast off.
