Possibly the cutest knitted toy you will ever make!  Anatomically correct, Al Paca even has toes on his feet.  He is quite intricate to knit and techniques include different increasing and decreasing stitches, short row shaping, picot bind off and a structurally sturdy, loop stitch.

Unlike most knitted toys, Al Paca is joined together whilst knitting the body.  This means that there is only the back seam to sew up when finished.
