zOomiger is really a pussy cat. He wears a tiger outfit and a fake tail so that he can pretend to be a tiger, but he is given away by his meow. Wearing the tiger outfit didn’t boost his self-esteem as he is still extremely shy and timid. He has a fear of mice, when he sees one, his eyes bloat up like balloons.

Standing doll measures about 26-28 cm.

  2. 3.25mm 40cm circular needles/ 3.25 DPN or size needed to obtain gauge.

  5. Stitch marker

If you use thicker yarn and bigger size of needles you get a bigger toy.
