About The Pattern


This pattern is for personal and non-profit use ONLY. Distribution of this pattern by means of profit making i.e. reselling or manufacturing, is prohibited. Do NOT sell the pattern itself or any resulting products from the use of this pattern in any way shape or form on any social media platform, custom work, or commission requests.

The pattern is worked in continuous rounds with no turning or turning chains for the head/body.
The arms, legs, and ears all have turning at the beginning of each round. I did not use any turning chains.

I used Almond on the body from rounds 1 through 9.

Orange yarn is first used in round 10. Rounds 12, 13, and 15 through 18 only Orange yarn is used.

Blue yarn is used only on round 14, to make the feet, and light embroidering on the arms.

(__,__)x# rep = repeat the set number of stitches that many times.

**Example: (sc, inc)x6 means repeat (sc,inc) 6 times for a total of 18 stitches.
