My friend lives on his own and calls himself a lone wolf. I thought this would cheer him up! If I was making it for a child I would not add the buttons on the limbs joints. I embroidered the eyes and nose although safety eyes could be used.
I did make a mistake when sewing up the back of the head but I could not see the yarn tail to unpick it so I left it alone! The pattern could also be knitted in a rusty brown and white so that he becomes a fox as shown on the pattern.
There is plenty of yarn left to make some more!
