Al Paca Toy Knitting Pattern
Possibly the cutest knitted toy you will ever make! Anatomically correct, Al Paca even has toes on his feet. He is quite intricate to knit and techniques include different increasing and decreasing stitches, short row shaping, picot bind off and a structurally sturdy, loop stitch.
Unlike most knitted toys, Al Paca is joined together whilst knitting the body. This means that there is only the back seam to sew up when finished.
Lucy and Sarah’s published story is on our blog: they’ve told us: “We are very pleased with his face and cute expression, and the yarn is beautifully soft.”
Designed by Tracy Birch, Al Paca has taken a year to perfect, but we are sure you will be delighted with the results.
