Once you’re on the tail, Sc down the tail. At the tip of the tail, Sc into the tip 2 times. On the other side of the tail, Sc down the other side of the tail, but not completely (Pic 7). We will need room to insert a pipecleaner. Fold a pipecleaner in half (Pic 8) then twist the pipecleaner together (Pic 9). Bend the sharp point of the pipecleaner up to make both ends dull (Pic 10). Insert the pipecleaner into the tail (Pic 11). Continue Sc down the tail. Stuff the part where the tail meets the body.

Repeat *Ch 2. Working back on the body, SlSt in the next 2 st*. Once you meet the neck, SlSt in the next 2 st. Stuff the body now.

  1. Hy Olive, thankyou for this free pattern. I really love your site thanks to its exotic patterns.
    I have a question, when you travel on a plane, do you crochet during the flight?
    I have a trip coming up and I really get bored, so I wanted to crochet. But my mom says that they wont let me bring my hook on the flight because it counts as an piercing object?
    Sorry for the long message
    Thankyou

    1. Hi,

      Commenting to say I crochet on flights. The hooks themselves are fine, it’s just scissors you need to be mindful of. Check TSA guidelines, but I believe if they are under 4 inches and/or you have a cover for them it’s fine (I have a small pair with cover and never had an issue). I also bring the plastic needles.

  2. Hy Nicole, thankyou for answering.
    I really apreciate the advice!
    As for the scissors, I think I will weave ends after the flight.
    Have a nicne day!

  3. I made this cutie pie and I love it! This pattern is great 🙂
