This little fellow is my #freebeefridayknits for February offering

Free forever but if you can I’d like you to make a donation please to help these little iconic and rather desperate creatures out a bit -

I won’t explain why because you already know - but if you do want to read more about them or their plight and if you can donate I’ve chosen the trusted WWF. Here’s the link.

You may also have a special link to a charity that you can share here or on my Instagram page - @dotpebbles_knits
Here’s the link

Knitting-wise - she’s knitted almost in one piece with yarns held together to make her extra extra soft - you could also brush her a little with a wire cat fur brush to add to that extra fluffiness..

I’ve given you two yarn choices within the pattern - namely Drops and Rowan…

And you’ll need a pair 12 mm or 14mm brown toy eyes (depending on whether you want small or slightly larger cutesy eyes) these are largely available - I buy from Etsy and Ebay
