Meet Steve

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:56 pm by merknits

Probably my favorite gift that I made in 2008 had to be this guy:

mr squirrel

mr squirrel side

mr squirrel ate some acorns

Pattern: Gray Squirrel Pattern 
Yarn: Wool of the Andes in Amber Heather, just a bit over 1 ball, and Yarn Bee Haute Fur
Notes: Despite all of the little pieces and the seaming required, this was really a quick knit.  He’s so cute – he even has a cheek pouch so that it looks like he’s storing food (either that or the pattern has a weird issue with the decreasing on the head)!  And I think my sister liked him – she decided to call him Steve.  This was a much better squirrel-themed gift than the mittens that I attempted to make her before!
