Real blue whales are the biggest of them all, regularly growing to around 100 feet long! Our whale comes in at just under 2 feet, but he’s the perfect size for snuggles. If you want a whale that’s going to use a little less of your polyfil stash, consider making him in a thinner weight yarn on smaller needles. To make the whale you will need knowledge of basic increases and decreases and be able to knit in the round on double pointed needles. The whale uses about two balls of MC (blue) and less than one ball of CC (white).
