I just love knitting toys!
This cute little guy is Duuuude The Sea Turtle, designed by Cheezombie and included as a free pattern in the Summer 2011 issue of Petite Purls (an online knitting magazine specializing in childrens’ patterns).
Cheezombie patterns definitely have a distinct look. Giant eyes, cute little bodies. It is funny how they look almost normal until you add the crazy eyes.
This guy was knit from some yarn who’s label I have now lost, but it is a rayon blend of some sort. I thought the colour was just right for a crazy little turtle. Hopefully the recipient agrees.
