I am so excited to share with you my latest pattern obsession! Puffy Stuffies! I love these guys so much! I have made some for my own family over the years, but decided the patterns needed to be written. They are so, incredibly soft! Made with Bernat Blanket yarn, I'm almost certain this is what a cloud feels like!
The soft stitches provide such a great texture for little ones, and they are a wonderful fun size for play, cuddle, and travel!
The first of the Puffy Stuffies I want to share is this sweet little chick, of course! Or, as my youngest fondly calls my prototype, "Mine Chick-a-dee-dee-dee!" And it can be made up super quick for Easter! You could probably make a dozen! It is the easiest of all my patterns, and I will be sharing lots of pictures to help you navigate through this yarn. It is not as hard as you might think!
