Super Milkman Amigurumi Pattern

Updated: May 13

I love having our milk delivered, we get a pint twice a week and never have to think about getting milk on our weekly shop. We save the world a little by reducing our plastic waste and the glass bottles are used more than 25 times before they get recycled. It makes me feel good to know that my morning bowl of cereal and the cups of tea I have throughout the day are impacting our planet as little as possible!



That's why the humble milk bottle needs to become a superhero! Not only that but milkmen and women across the country are continuing their job of delivering milk to the nation, we might be in lockdown thanks to that nasty virus friend, but that just means more cups of tea! I made this little guy to leave out for our lovely milkman to remind him that not all heroes wear capes! Some of them are morning ninjas who replace empty bottles with full ones without even the dog noticing!

The pattern for your own caped milk bottle is below, if you would like a nicely printable version then check out the one on my Ravelry store
