After knitting 9 of these little guys, I feel like my house is being overrun with hamsters. Using small amounts of scrap yarn (12 yards for each body and 1.5 yards for the ears, feet and tail) they knitted up quick and easy.
The eyes were made by adding small black glass beads. The ears were knitted using a long tail cast on method. The tails from the ears were pulled through the body and tied to form the feet and tail. I must say the feet and tail made them adorable.
The pattern was created by Emily Stoneking and can be found on Ravelry here.
