Level: intermediate, advanced. Skills of amigurumi crocheting are needed. The toy has wireframe.

There are only three parts for sewing in this toy - ears, a nose and a tail, all another body details are connecting with crocheting.

Materials (are needed):
1) Acrylic: yarn weight Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi) (250 meters/50 gr), e.g. “Acacia” by Troitsk Yarn, Baby Solids by Bernat, Lusy by Eliah – beige, black

!!! Note: I draw your attention to control a clothing size if you use another yarn different from mine. May be you should take thicker or thinner hook for the suit. It is desirable to keep a ratio of yarn thickness for the body and for the suit as about 2:1. It means yarn for the body should twice as thick as yarn for the suit.
