Now the Raccoon joins the other Woodland Animals group of the Woodland Fox, Hedgie , Turtle, Bunny, Squirrel and Acorns, and Little Owl!

Raccoon is worked seamlessly from the bottom-up for the body and head (worked back to front), all appendages are picked up and knit on. The only whipstitch seam is to attach the head to the body. This is a fun and fairly simple knit that works up pretty fast due to the heavier yarn and larger needles!
