For the adventurous mad genius with a flair for the dramatic, these Cute and Cuddly Mutant Zombie Squirrels (of doom) are the perfect minion/ companion. A choose-your-own-adventure pattern, you’ll be able to knit anything from a regular squirrel, to a multi-legged beast of horror. The basic pattern is the same whether you want your squirrel to be low or high on the “not at all a zombie” to “totally waiting for you to fall asleep so it can eat your brains” scale. In addition, this is a functional pouch; you can keep your accessories, knit markers, and small projects in it. Please note that as such it is somewhat floppy unless full.

The pattern, as written, is the same as found in the indigodragonfly kits. If you are using stash yarn, you will need about 195yds of your main colour, and less than 40 yds for your other colours (teeth, belly, eyes). The pattern is worked in fingering weight, but there is no reason you couldn’t do any weight, just adjust your measurements accordingly.
