FT231e Buddy Bears... and Bones

Knitters are nothing if not compassionate and animal-loving, and here Galeskas provides amusing felted dog toys. We like the wit of offering a human shape upon which Fido is encouraged to chew, and the giant bone not only entertains the dog, but provides great photo opportunities. The designer notes that "felted very firmly, these toys are tougher than most purchased dog toys, but as with any toy, supervision is required". Advice is even included about using a squeaker! These are easy to make in just about any yarn and gauge, depending on the size of the dog you wish to please. Gauge given over garter stitch.
