Developed by Diceberry Designs, Skippy the Kangaroo Mailman was an entry to the first Amigurumi Patterns.net themed contest “Animals at Work” back in 2013 and later became a part of the published book with the same name in 2014. The pattern is written in US terminology and is recommended for easy skill level and above.

Skippy K. Hoppings is the fastest pair of legs in the West. Delivering packages and letters at near-lightning speed while carrying a sunny disposition, she is the epitome of a good service with a smile.
