As you can see from the photograph, this is an abundant, warm, fuzzy scarf, meant to be
worn with the head in front, and the rest of the scarf hung back across it with the tail
hanging down in back. And, yes, it is a little weird.
This is not the easiest thing to knit, because it involves some tricky increasing on the
head, and intarsia for the body, but if you like getting ohhhhhs and ahhhhhs and the occasional
pat from a stranger, this is the scarf for you. And he’s interesting to work on, because you’re
dying to see how he’ll come out.
The Materials you'll need for this Knitting Project:
Small amounts of a white and a black bulky for the face, and of an oak tan bulky for
2 balls each of a chocolate brown knitting worsted to combine with 2 balls of a fuzzy
synthetic and mohair novelty yarn for the dark part of the body, and 1 ball each of a white
knitting worsted combined with one ball of a matching mostly white fuzzy novelty yarn for the
white parts of the body. Each color will be made up of two strands held together.
For the body, wind a ball of the two browns, and keep it in a plastic zipper bag from the
Supermarket; for the white, cut six or eight foot strands of the white yarns.
You’ll need a couple of buttons for the eyes, a small crochet hook for the ears, and
#10 or 10 ˝ needles for the body, plus double-pointed # 9 needles and polyester stuffing or
spare acrylic yarn for the tail. Of course, you’ll need a tape measure and a blunt tipped
yarn needle for weaving in the ends.
