Notes

Made for my animal mad boy - I edited the instructions to knit the whole thing in the round - anything to avoid seaming!

The pattern works perfectly well in the round, done on sock needles. I followed a stuff-as-you-go approach, starting with the head and then picking up stitches directly on the underside of the head to knit the neck and body. Same again for the tail.

(You could also do likewise for the arms and legs but you’d need to follow the instructions in reverse as they’re written to start at the paw ends.)
