My dinky grey squirrel is gathering acorns for his supper. His fluffy tail is knitted in an eyelash yarn to make it extra fluffy!

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the acorn stalk which is i-cord knitted on two double pointed needles (DPNs). You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, sew seams and knit i-cord.

FINISHED SIZE: The squirrel is approximately 11cm tall (standing). The acorn is 4cm tall (without the stalk).
