Sooooo excited to finish this one!
He was so much fun to make - think I feel a ‘mini addiction’ coming on!! :)

I used a 0.6mm antique steel hook and 2 strands of DMC cotton embroidery floss to make the motifs. :)

Variegated Red - DMC #115
Grey - #3799

Tail - 3 x full thickness (6 strands) of embroidery floss, at least twice the length of the finished tail that you want - thread the 3 lengths (held together) through between motifs just above the tail-end octagon. Pull your threads through until the ends meet up together - so that your 3 threads are now 6…….divide your 6 threads into pairs and plait together. Tie a knot in the end when you reach your desired tail length, pull it tight and snip off any excess thread. :)
