Pocket Creature!

I love these guys! They keep your hands warm and are so adorable! I lost one of my purple ones last year, but finally replaced it due in part to trying to draw down my stash and queue for moving and mostly due to the Quidditch Challenge prompt for the Harry Potter House Cup. New Creature:

Pattern: Toasty Pocket Creatures (Rav)
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool, Royal Purple and Burnt Orange
Needles: US6/4.0 mm
Timeframe: January 16-21, 2012
Mods: None.
Problems: Gauge is a bit tight so the rice packet didn't fit nicely. Works okay though!
Obviously, I didn't have, or at least couldn't find, a matching button. I swear I bought a 3-pack and used two the first time...I wonder if I used the other one in another project sometime. Or something. Either way, I now have Creatures for both of my pockets, some more stash used up, and another long-queued project finished and crossed of my list.


  1. I am trying to make one of these and do not understand how to construct the bottom part. Can you help? Thanks.

    1. I haven't made this in a long time, but maybe the pictures on this Ravelry project (https://www.ravelry.com/projects/lynn893/toasty-pocket-creatures) will help. The bottom is basically a square, then a circle, then you start knitting the body in the round and seam it together in the end.


Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog!
