About this pattern: For a few years I have been making clothes to fit my plastic porch goose https://www.ravelry.com/bundles/goose-clothes-3

NO CLOTHES or accessories are included in this pattern. Several are available for free on my website: https://snappy-tots.com/goose/

I have had a lot of requests for a crocheted, stuffed version that would also fit the same outfits. This is designed with those in mind and reworked multiple times to get just the right fit.

Crochet Hook: H hook (5mm)
