Ravelympics Day 14: Wrap-Me-Up Pup



I've finished knitting this little puppy his very own knitted blanket...
And that, my friends, is the completion of my Ravelympics projects for this year!

This pattern "Wrap me up Puppies" is also from the book Itty Bitty Toys.
I just love this book. This is now the 3rd pattern I've knit from it.
I'm pretty sure that Susan B. Anderson is a toy knitting genius.


My daughter absolutely loves putting her stuffed animals and dolls to bed.
That is by far her favorite playtime activity. From the first time I flipped through this pattern book, I knew that this is a toy that I would definitely make one day.

I just love how you can wrap this little blanket around and fasten it up like a little puppy burrito.

Very clever.


This puppy and blanket only took a few days to knit,
and was the easiest toy out of the 3 to make. I would definitely consider making this one again.

My daughter is of course thrilled to add puppy to her knitted toy collection..

...which is growing quite large these days...

Wow... I love it and I'm totally not a dog person. I hope that my children have plenty of knitted toys like your daughter, I'm pretty sure they will!

Well done on what you achieved during th olyimpics - I was so slack here and the times that we got it on tv I was too tired (and the fact that I chose lace patterns - not a wise move:(

Love the little puppy and that pile of toys is impressive.

This is quite possibly the cutest knit toy I have ever seen! I just love the collection that you are building her - so sweet.

The little puppy is so cute with his knitted blanket. I have the same book and I might just have to knit some toys for my god-daughter soon. I am sure she would love something out of it for xmas. I love that photo of your daughter sitting with all her knitted toys!

that last photo of your daughter with all her knitted toys makes me want to start a knitted toy hope chest for my future little ones!! So darling.

These are so great! I love Susan Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys, and have made the lamb as well. Your stitches look perfect! With the little toys, and all of the increases and decreases, as well as working with worsted cotton, my toys look a lot less flawless than yours! Guess I can look forward to mine looking like these with time!

Good job, and thanks for posting!

Awesome little puppy with matching blanket. You've made me want to go out and get her new book. She really is an amazing toy designer.

I LOVE the wrap-me-up pup! What a great way to wrap up the ravelympics.

I have to say, it kind of worries me that a friend took a picture of me holding her handspun which is almost identical to your daughter and her stuffies...

Lucy said...

Your lucky daughter has so many beautiful knitted toys! They look so so so cute together!

I just had a baby boy, and you made me want to have a baby girl now...

Melissa said...
