I've been experimenting with materials other than yarn, and I was drawn to the texture of jute rope.  I used magic circles as the basis for PikPik's head and body.  His limbs, ears and face are all from worsted weight acrylic yarn.  He's not stuffed with anything but the strands of yarn, and the jute is sturdy enough to maintain PikPik's shape.
