Dave the Dog is the first in the Slumber Party series of fuzzy, cuddly bedtime friends. The machine washable cover conveniently fits a standard bed pillow. But there’s no need to keep him on the bed, he can be carried anywhere a furry companion is needed. The face is knit in intarsia with duplicate stitch details and the feet, tail and ears are knit separately then sewn into the seams when the pillow is assembled. Large yarn and needles make this a quick knit and a much loved gift.

Other yarn options are Plymouth Yarn Heaven for the body, ears and tail and Plymouth Yarn Encore Mega for the face and feet.
