Sunshine - Rico Merino Chunky - Materials Pack

If you'd like to knit your own sun using the chunky yarn I made my second sunshine in then this is the materials pack for you. This will make a smaller sunshine than the Rico Essentials Big, but I think this size might be even cuter than the original design! 

FINISHED SIZE: 20cm (8n) in diameter x 4cm (2in) wide


  • This is a MATERIALS ONLY bundle, no paper pattern is included as the digital knitting pattern is listed free here.
  • 1 x 100 ball of Rico Essentials Mega Merino in Saffron (55% wool, 45% acrylic)
  • A small amount of DK pink wool for the cheeks (100% acrylic)
  • A small amount of black chunky yarn for the smile 
  • 2 x 15mm toy eyes 
  • 100g polyester toy stuffing
  • Hessian project bag
  • Optional 6mm and 4mm (US 10 and 8) knitting needles
