Plushis are a little bit shy, so you might not have met one before. If you have, you will know that they are very happy and kind creatures, designed to help little people feel better. Click here to learn about the magical places where Plushis come from!

Around 1600 children are diagnosed with cancer in the UK each year. Treatment is not very nice and can leave children feeling very unwell. Sometimes we all need a happy little face to hold, to help us feel better. Our aim is to knit as many Plushi characters as we can to give to children in hospitals who are fighting cancer. Can you help us?

If you'd like to knit one or two (or a whole football team), please do! The pattern and instructions are in this PDF.

Many thanks to Lucinda Ganderton and Let's Knit magazine for allowing us to share this pattern. You guys are awesome!
