Tag: Chaffy

Apologies for not posting last week, with lockdown easing I decided to do a trip up North to see the family (socially distant, of course) and then Greater Manchester went into lockdown while I was there and…yeah…fun times.

It was amazing though getting to see my family again. The home sickness was beginning to be unbearable as it’s been 10 months since my last visit! It should have been in April but…well, 2020 happened.

Shenanigans aside, I didn’t manage much knitting, and certainly no spinning (which I hope to rectify soon) but I can share this little project I had finished just in time to suprise my sister with!


For those long time readers, you may remember the first time I did Chaffys, based on those found in Jamie Smart’s book ‘Find Chaffy’. Well, he did a sequel, ‘Find chaffy Now’. Rabbie let slip to Felix that it existed so we got a copy and I was conned into making two sets of those.

Correction. Felix informed me I had to ‘finish the Chaffy family’…for her and auntie Rabbie…

So I did. And now you can all gaze upon each and every one…

And that’s it for today! Have a good weekend and stay safe!

So, when I made the Chaffys not that long ago, I mentioned that Felix liked to play ‘Find Chaffy’ with them. This is fine and fair enough when playing games, but the Chaffys appear to sneak around and get into all sorts of places…

Like under the sofa.

Nestled in the sock drawer.

Lurking in the toy box.

Peeping out from in the blankets.

Hiding under cushions…

The list is pretty endless. The point is trying to get all ten in one place and staying there was driving me mad. So, I did the obvious thing!

I made a  Chaffy bag. In all the colours of the Chaffys. It’s pretty bright, and almost but not quite rainbow like! I used the free pattern ‘Taffy’ by The Noble Thread – mostly because I liked the construction and it would allow panels of colour as opposed to the normal stripes.

It had nothing to do with the fact I found it highly amusing that Taffy and Chaffy rhyme.


You’ll notice in the photo that only nine of the ten Chaffys are present, and a little set of fingers, this is because Inkling has taken a shine to them, especially the dinosaur one, and kept photo bombing and stealing them, this was the best of a bad bunch!

This is an image heavy post, just to warn you!

So, when we were up visiting Rabbie at Easter, her husband introduced Felix to ‘Find Chaffy’ by James Smart, a sort of incredibly cute and fluffy version of ‘Wheres Wally’. But of course, it didn’t end there, you see, Rabbie had made Chaffy, and four of the nine other Chaffy forms.

Felix fell in love, and decided that she needed her own Chaffy set. Yes. Set. Chaffy and all nine forms!

Classic Chaffy

Classic Chaffy

Panda Chaffy

Cat Clown Chaffy

Ghost Chaffy

Robot Chaffy

Dinosaur Chaffy

Pig Chaffy

Octopus Chaffy

Ninja Chaffy

And lastly, Bear Chaffy!

Based all these on the free pattern Oh Balls! by Marcie Nishioka – with additions and modifications to suit each one.

Here’s a group photo:

But that’s not all, Felix insisted that I also need to finish off Auntie Rabbies set of Chaffys, so that she can play with them when she next visits. So, here’s the five to do just that!

Felixs current favourite game fright now is ‘Find Chaffy’ where you hide them all and give clues as to their locations…

With that, I’ll leave you all there this week! Oh, except for the wool count mind you.
