Designed by the talented Rebecca Olson, these cute knitted stuffed toys are knitted in the round using circular knitting needles. It is a perfect project for knitters with intermediate skills to work on.

The pattern comes in a single size and measures approximately 6 inches tall when completed. That is 10 cm in height if you are using the metric system.

To make these knitted sloths, you will need Red Heart’s Amigurumi Yarn. It is a fun and lovely yarn made of 100% acrylic. The yarn is great for making soft and cuddly toys like this piece that we’re making.

You will also need a size US 2 double-pointed knitting needle. That’s 2.75 mm needle if you are using the metric system.

Moreover, you will be using the m1 and kfb knitting increases when working on this plush toy. The m1 or make 1 is an almost invisible increase that is best used after a rib. You can learn more about the m1 here: M1, M1R, M1L: Knitting Abbreviations Explained.

The KFB or knit front and back is a visible increase. It creates a horizontal bar in the increased stitch on the knit side of your project. If you want to learn how to do the KFB, check out our illustrated tutorial on it here: Learn How to Make a KFB or Bar Increase.
