Little Red Squirrel - Easter Egg Cover
This famous 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. A matching Peter Rabbit Creme Egg Cover is available to knit also.
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.
