•You will have enough yarn to make several toys.
•Pretzel is worked flat, then sewn into a tube and stuffed.
•Tube is twisted into Pretzel shape, and salt is embroidered using French Knots.
•We used a smaller needle than usual for this yarn to create a dense fabric for this toy.
With Honey, cast on 9 stitches.
Row 1 (Right Side): Knit.
Row 2: Purl.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures about 17" from beginning. Bind off, leaving a long yarn tail.
Thread yarn tail into blunt needle and sew long sides of piece together to make a tube, stuffing lightly as you go with Poly-fil and catnip.
Sew ends of tube closed.
Fold ends of tube, crossing ends to create a pretzel shape.
Sew a few stitches through where the pieces cross to hold the shape.
With White yarn, embroider French Knot 'salt' on Pretzel.
Weave in ends.
