In 2007 we commissioned a lemur knitting pattern to be knitted and sold to raise money for the Sisters of the Good Shepherd orphanage in Madagascar…but he didn’t have a name! We asked Hotter fans to help us out and Jean Summers from Wooton Under Edge named him Hococo (using the first two letters of Hotter Comfort Concept).

Since then he has been knitted by crafting fans all over the world and we’d love even more of you to get involved and knit your very own Hococo the lemur.

To request your free knitting pattern, created by Alan Dart, email us at [email protected]  When your lemur is complete we’d love to see a photo, please email them or share to our Facebook or Instagram pages.

Happy knitting!
