Little Red Squirrel - Easter Egg Cover
This little red squirrel holds a knitted acorn in both his paws and a chocolate Easter Egg in his tummy! He makes an adorable Easter gift or Springtime chocolate favour for wildlife lovers everywhere.
Very simple to knit, using regular needles and oddments of DK yarn - the addition of eyelash yarn gives fluffy white flecks to his bushy tail. Acorn is knitted in oddments of 4 ply and a tiny amount of toy stuffing is needed for his head.
