Simply Knitting

FUN AND GAMES

My grandson Lewis wrote me a letter asking if I could make him a ‘Sackboy’ toy for his birthday, as this ‘hand-knitted’ character is from a videogame he had for Christmas. His mum found me part of a pattern from Pinterest, but when I searched online for the rest of the pattern, I found it was actually in Simply Knitting (my favourite knitting magazine) all the way back in 2009! I did, however, have a problem matching the colour, as it was discontinu­ed. As you see ‘Sackboy’ is an odd little fellow!

It’s great to see you are enjoying the pattern all these years later. And hopefully Lewis will enjoy Sackboy in real life as much as he does on screen.
