Pattern Description:

Say hello to KIRA!

Kira can be seen from afar by her long scarlet colored scarf - so the koalas sometimes call her the "Red Kira". In her spacious pouch she keeps everyday things and her impressive collection of antique cushion springs - and of course her baby kangaroo feels most at home here. After a furious victory in the shadow boxing championship, the two prepare themselves for the world championship in long-jump.

Kira is approximately 10,5 inches tall. She is made out of cosy 4 ply tweed, cotton wool and love. For your little kangaroo you can use every yarn you prefer - she's getting taller or smaller but she's always really cute!

I wrote this crochet pattern for beginners too and I tried to be very detailed in my descriptions. I also included some charts to explain what to do.
