The second version of the pattern, with cat, dog, rabbit, and pig, is shown in the first 5 photos. The original pattern is shown in the last picture.

The pattern includes directions for all four animals: a cat, a dog, a pig, and a rabbit. These toys can be knit from a single yarn, or from yarn scraps of different colours and/or textures. For the best results, you will need at least 30 m of each yarn, and they should all be the same weight. Be sure to have a bit of extra yarn, because the amount you need depends on how many joins you have between yarns.
