It's a little late I know, but I made this for a "Thanksgiving Rnd 2" dinner party I attended a couple weekends ago. I think he made for a pretty great host gift (along with a couple bottles of wine)
I did stuff him a little too much though and so some of that shows. Oh well, no one is perfect and everyone loves stuffing am I right. (horrible joke)
Anyways here he is. I didn't use a pattern I just looked at some other critters for inspiration and went for it.
Along the way I did accidentally teach myself how to make a sort of neat half circle (tail) and I was pretty proud to figure that out
I totally fell in love with him while I was crocheting, it was really hard to give him away.
