Fenimore is a Fennec. A desert fox with super long ears, sporting the colours of his sandy habitat…

This cuddly chap is mainly worked in the round, except for the ears which are worked flat and seamed up.

Skills required: working small pieces in the round (dpns or magic loop), changing colours, increases, decreases, stuffing pieces while still on the needles, a small amount of seaming (for the ears) and stitching pieces together. Photo help and sewing tips are provided to aid in assembling the toy, along with a diagram showing all measurements and circumferences to work and stuff the toy to.
