Introducing my Cyril the Skunk knitting pattern. Cyril is 17 cm tall. All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. This pattern incorporates intarsia colour-work to make the head and body and kitchener stitch grafting to finish the arms and legs. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.
