A skunk’s smelly spray can last up to four months, poo-ey! Thankfully this skunk is woolly, not smelly.

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

FINISHED SIZE: The skunk is approximately 17cm tall.
