This pattern produces a spherical, rounded Tribble, approximately 5 inches in diameter. This Tribble should be prevented from accessing your engine room, or any other mechanically important parts of your ship. Although friendly, cuddly, cute, and able to produce happy feelings in all who hold them, they breed like Tribbles. (They are born pregnant…although since you are creating this one, you can maybe solve that problem??)

Here is some information about Tribbles:

The yarn used for this first Tribble is Fourrure by Bergere de France. This amazing yarn was created to make furry things with no supporting yarn doubled with it. It’s base chain is thick and substantial. Gauge is not important for this project, and I’m not sure how you could measure it through the fur!

You will need:
Size 9mm (US 13) double pointed or circular needles
Large tapestry needle
Polyester fiberfill or wool stuffing
