Brilliant pattern very quick and easy to knit and sew together. I made a total of 14, in different colours. A family of spiders!

One of the best knitted toy patterns ever! While a bit tricky in some of the tighter spots, the pattern is well written and easy to follow, great construction techniques. I like that it's knit pretty much "in one piece" with no seams, should be more durable in a child's hands (I did the legs in the round with conditional cast-on rather than as written to avoid seams and it worked very well). Perfect for the yarn left over from the blanket.

I downloaded the pattern and started knitting the same day. Very easy to knit and I loved the finished product . It was a present for a work colleague who was delighted with her "piggy"
