Toy Extras: Snacks for Hungry Sloths

We are so excited about our new toy collections!! Cute, Cuter, Cutest: Toys to Love in 3 Sizes feature either knit or crochet toys in different weight yarns,  so that you can craft little (or not so little) toys for young (or not so young) toy lovers in your life. For the next 4 weeks on the blog, we’re going to feature some cute add-on patterns that might be adorable when made with (or rather, for, ahem) these toys. What stuffed knit toy doesn’t need a toy to play with, right?

First up, our knitted sloth needed a snack. He is a sloth, of course! Our free Amigurumi Crochet Cupcake was the perfect complement to the Choloepus Sloth, knit up in the medium size.


We made three cupcakes for our hungry sloth, all in Comfy Fingering Yarn. We used the colors White and Semolina, Parchment and Sea Foam, and Doe and Peony. He loves them all ;)! So if you’re making a humble sloth, download our free cupcake pattern to go along with him, and crochet him a bite to eat.

If you’re making the large sloth, why not make some jumbo stuffed cupcakes in bulky yarn, too? Everyone will love them. Enjoy!

    Do the knit patterns use short rows? I’ve found that a lot of stuffed animal patterns do and I just can’t seem to get the knack of them.
