This skunk uses fluffy eyelash yarns to make the fuzzy tail. Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the skunk is knitted in DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round). Worked mostly in stockinette with increases and decreases for shaping, this pattern incorporates intarsia colour-work to make the body and head, and Kitchener stitch for grafting.
