Black and white stripes are so hot right now. Every zebra, including Zoe, is wearing them! Knit Zoe by knitting a striped Stockinette square, four legs, two ears, an I-cord tail, and loop stitch mane. After assembling, add beads for eyes. If giving Zoe to a child, embroider eyes and do not add beads.

1 skein each in #815 Black and #871 White

Like all of the cuddly creatures in this book, Zoe can be knit to different sizes by using different yarn weights and gauges. Need it oversized? Use bulky or jumbo yarn. Need it tiny? Try a finer weight. It’s as simple as that.
