Tanoshi skeleton.

The toy is knitted in the round and that is why the pattern is recommended for Advanced Beginner Knitters.

The finished doll is approximately 5,9 inches (15 cm) tall.

Materials needed
• 4 double-pointed needles in a size suitable for the yarn weight you are using. I recommend using needles a size or two smaller than the yarn calls for, to produce a firm fabric. İ used Needles size US 2½ (3mm).
• White and black yarn. I used Nako Bonbon Amigurumi / 100% acrylic ; 100gr – 170m /
• Toy stuffing
• Yarn needle
• Stitch holder
• 2 buttons for eyes
• Piece of white felt

All rows are worked in the round, this helps avoid ugly seams .
