I’ve been working on this raccoon off and on for a few weeks. I had finished the head a while ago but was reluctant to complete the body because I was unsure of the blue colour accents. Normally, I would make my forest animals true to the forest but thought the blue accents would be cute for a baby boy’s room or something.
I purchased the pattern from Son’s Popkes, and have completed many of her patterns! I love them! They are easy to follow and she has a beautiful selection of animals to make.
As you can see, this pattern had a few yarn colour changes throughout. If you ever need a refresher or would like to learn how to change yarn colours, this video by Planet June is great.
I used Vanna’s Choice yarn, a 3.5mm crochet hook, 6mm safety eyes, and polyester stuffing.
