You may just want to search Amazon. There are several there. They can always be returned if you do not like them.

Also try knittingpatterncentral.com under their toy or animal category. Free patterns. (unless the pattern has a "+" sign in front of it, than you need to register with that site to see the pattern but most you do not need to register.

Here is a cute, easy and fun pattern to try. I have made a couple of them out of just worsted weight acrylic yarn. You can also use a fuzzy yarn for the inside of the ears.

What is the felt project ratio for the book? Since I don't use wool I cannot felt.
