Eastern Gray Squirrel
This pattern is currently only available by purchasing the book that it is published in - Wild & Woolly Knitted Animals, A Naturalist's Journal. Available wherever books are sold!
These little critters keep their ever growing teeth clean and sharp by gnawing on hard branches. This daily ritual can take up to an hour to perform.
Eastern Gray Squirrel’s body is knit flat in 2 pieces, then stuffed and seamed together. Stitches are then picked up to work the arms and head. The tail is worked in the round, with short rows giving it the natural curve. The finished squirrel will be about 6” tall, and 3” wide. (This is a pattern that has been substantially revised from an earlier self-published release.)
Learn more about this wonderful animal and 24 others when you read the pages of a naturalist as she travels the world, documenting the animals she sees, and designing knitting patterns for each one. This book was a collaboration with my children who did the artwork.
