Materials needed

Brown yarn of 4 mm
Any peach yarn in 4 mm.

A pair of Safety Noses

Brown felt: Brown worsted yarn or Novita hahtuvainen Tummanruskean 651 if you live in Finland

White and brown pressed felt.


HOOK SIZE:

For this pattern I am using a 4 mm hook but you can use a smaller or bigger. The bigger the hook the less tight the stitches and the bigger your amigurumi. If you use the hook I am recommending in this pattern and tour fabric still looks loose (you can see the stuffing) you should use a smaller hook.

How to Install safety eyes

Take the eyes and insert them in one of the holes ofthe head. Be sure of placing them in the desired spot and add the safety plastic in the behind press until hearing a click and test if the eye is secured correctly by pulling carefully.


HAIR (in mustard or yellow color)

Cut as many pieces as you want of the hair in the desired length and volume of your dolls hair. You can cut them all at once by rolling your yarn around a piece of paper and cutting in one end . once you have the desired amount as in the picture. Sew in the middle of your amigurumi and follow the line until the back of the head. Style the hair of your Amigurumi in any way you want, be creative!

Sew nose to the hat between the eyes.
Add small accessories to the squirrel face such as teeth and decoration for the ears with pressed felt. I recommend using ”puuliima” to glue the teeth carefully to the wool.


ADDING THE TEETH TO THE HAT

Cut two small pieces of white felt and glue them under the nose with “puulima” or wood glue that is very hard and good to keep things in place.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NOSE, FEET, TEETH AND TAIL:


NOSE

With black thread embroider a cute little nose and the line of the mouth.

FEET

For the feet we use brown felt.
Draw 4 circles of the size of a quarter (European Ninjas can use 50 cents) onto the brown felt and sew two together. Once you have both feet ready, sew them to the bottom of the body.

TEETH

Cut a small white felt square and glue it under the nose of the squirrel (wood glue works very well)

TAIL

Cut two rectangles of brown felt measuring 6cm x 3cm each and sew them together. Take the end of the rectangle, roll it two times and sew it with brown thread. Sew the remaining length of the tail on the bottom of the body close to the feet.
