Tubby Tiger

This adorable, cuddly tiger pattern is knit with DK weight yarn held doubled (worsted weight yarn can be substituted and held single stranded) to make a hardwearing cuddly toy just perfect for snuggling.

Two sets of instructions are provided: work the body in the round and sew on the chest at the end if you prefer a simpler knit, or, choose intarsia in the round for a more challenging knit that reduces finishing to attaching the head and embroidering the face.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the intarsia of the body.

This pattern would suit intermediate knitters and is a perfect opportunity to learn some new skills. Techniques used include the (optional) intarsia in the round (fully explained in the pattern), short rows, jogless stripes, and the Turkish cast on. Links to useful tutorials are provided for each technique.

Yardage in DK: (Held double. gauge reflects this)
200 yards CA (black in sample)
200 yards CB (orange in sample)
180 yards CC (white in sample)
