Squirt, the Squirrel
An accidental bookmark.
Squirt, the squirrel, is a funny bookmark that I created during the last snowstorm. Finished bookmark/toy size: approximately 13“ (33cm) including the tail.
Knitted in the round with some intarsia work done in flat knitting, top to bottom with the head, body, and tail knitted as one piece, and arms and legs knitted separately and sewn on. Some simple embroidery required for the tire tracks.
To knit your own Squirt you will need about 1.5oz (44gr) total of medium weight yarn in grey, white, and Fun Fur or another type of novelty yarn for the tail. You will use about 100 – 120 yards (91 – 110 meters) of grey, about 15 yards of white, and 20 yards of Fun Fur. A small amount of black yarn for the eyes, and tire track, a small amount of red yarn for the tongue.
You can purchase the pattern here.
