Knit A Caribou Critter - The Perfect Gift!

Touch the buttery soft and fluffy Hikoo Caribou yarn and your mind starts to scream "Teddy Bear!!!"  Designer CiD Hanscom agrees, and the moment she got her hands on Caribou she started thinking of patterns for cute, huggable critters!  Using one strand each of HiKoo's Caribou and Simplicity (for added body), CiD has created Caribou Critters in three adorable patterns: a cheeky monkey, a playful puppy and a "hug him tight" teddy bear.

Caribou is a novelty yarn you have to touch to believe.  It's a super bulky yarn that is light and feathery soft. It comes in neutral tones and fun pastel colors!
The feathery soft Caribou yarn!
Simplicity is one of our most popular yarns - a buttery soft, superwash wool blend, and we've got over 60 colors to choose from!  Your friends at Ravelry have posted over 1,000 projects made with Simplicity!

Bonus:  We've got Simplicity on sale at 20% off!

The combination of Caribou and Simplicity results in a furry friend that is completely washable.  I didn't realize how important this was until our team member Suzy (the Shepherdess) had "Baby Number Two".  That kid was a barfer!  He puked more in his first three months of life than most people do in their entire life.  Suzy  was constantly doing laundry!  Some of his toys were ruined, but his Caribou Critters could be thrown in the washing machine with the rest of his nasty clothes, and came out smelling like a rose and ready for more hugging!

So which Caribou Critter do you want to knit first?

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
