Finsbury Squirrel is busy today collecting acorns so he won’t go hungry this winter.

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, and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The squirrel is approximately 16cm tall (sitting).
