Pattern Notes

  • Work in continuous rounds. Do not slip stitch unless otherwise specified by the pattern.
  • For best results, assemble parts in order as directed.
  • Weave in attachment end at very end of project in case pieces require repositioning.
  • Rounds labeled “Short round” are worked back and forth and will end before the round is complete, leaving stitches deliberately unworked to be worked in later rounds as instructed. This will create the curve of the tail.
  • When instructed, an additional sc will be added at the end of a round to move the starting stitch of the next round to the left. This will keep the curves in a straight line on the tail.
  • On pieces containing short rounds, stuff firmly to blend texture of stitches.
