Dante the Donkey and Carlos the Cactus are an unlikely but very loyal pair of amigos.

They met in the Mexican desert after Dante got lost straying too far from his family’s rancho. Carlos the Cactus chatted away and shook his maracas to cheer the little donkey up while he rested his weary legs through the long, dark night. By the morning they were firm friends. Bored of being mostly alone in the desert Carlos persuaded Dante to dig up his roots and put him in a terracotta pot so he could travel around with his new friend wherever he roamed.

Don’t worry, they eventually managed to find their way back to the rancho together where they now spend sunny days and starry nights planning their next daring adventure!

Dante measures approx. 9” (23 cm) tall, Carlos measures approx. 5” (13 cm) .

Pattern uses light worsted weight (DK/8 ply) yarn and a size D (3.25mm) Hook.
