Awwwwwwwwww! Just look at them...ADORABLE!!!!!
My children kindly requested a plushy version of ilo and milo and, well, they were too just too darn cute not to try. Here is my mini version, about 3 inches high (not including antenna)
Hook sizes G & E
ww yarn in blue or red, and cream
brown or black pipe cleaner
cream embroidery thread
ilomilo BODY - Hook G, red or blue yarn
Magic Circle 6
R1: 2 sc in ea st (12)
R2: *sc, 2 sc in next st* around (18)
R3 - R12: sc around (18 ea)
F.O. and leave a long tail
Make face out of felt, use markers to make eyes. Sew onto ilomilo body.
|make one eye slightly bigger than the other|
Using the yarn needle, pull the yarn from the side you F.O. to the opposite side and through a stitch. Use this as a podium for the pipe cleaner to wrap around.
ilo milo ARMS & LEGS - Hook E with cream yarn

Of course, you cannot make one without the other so here they are...together again:
