This friendly doorstop is knitted in two pieces and sewn together. He is knitted using a yarn which changes colour, in two different shads so as well as having the contrast there is also a subtle colour change too.

He has a knitted base and ‘toes’ peeping out. There is a small amount of short row shaping in the tail to make it curl around.

The Rialto 4 Ply is used to knit the nose and embroider the mouth and whiskers.
