Pattern Description:

Meet Chaco. If you're searching for a challenge, or something to make that will really wow your friends and family, take a look at this pattern! This cheerful parrot puppet works up to about 11" high (not including the tail) and fits a hand up to a woman's size Medium. His unique construction allows him to serve as a charming and attractive stuffed animal when not in use as a puppet - I've never seen another crochet pattern like this! With five pages of directions, including detailed instructions for assembly (complete with diagrams to assist you in putting it all together correctly) and full-color photographs, even the less-experienced crocheter can make this fabulous toy in no time.
