Speaking of mochimochi (or amigirumi, if you prefer the term taken from crochet), here’s a really cute little pattern for a knit Baby Bear ala Goldilocks.
This little guy comes together quickly with scraps and you could easily make it a girl instead of a boy by making a little skirt instead of shorts.
This pattern comes from Fiona Goble’s recently released Fairy Tale Knits, which includes 20 characters from classic tales that you can knit. What a great holiday present some of these cuties and their books would be!
