Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Magic rings and basic stitches.

Pattern Description:

I had some ginger fluffy yarn lying there for the longest time and the only thing that I could think to make was an Orangutan. I've always liked them and after doing some research for this project, I now know that they have become endangered due to the palm oil and pulp and paper companies clearing the rainforests to use for their plantations. Daisy is a young Sumatran Orangutan from Indonesia.



10 percent of the sale price will be donated to SOS to support their work.
