Notes

Going to try this with a slightly lighter weight cotton than the pattern calls for, but with the prescribed needles. Hope he doesn’t turn out holey!

Phew! So much sewing together of pieces. I was a bit worried about the legs fitting through the holes but it’s turned out just fine. Lots of finicky detail work at the end, including a line of single crochet to make the leg holes join up, and a round of icord to bind top and bottom of shell together.

He’s pretty darned cute, though, if I do say so myself. :)
