What materials did you use? Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted in Aubergine (for the body, wings, and watch pocket) and Baby Yellow (for the beak). Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun (acrylic/wool, worsted weight) for the (right) eye. Plymouth Yarn Encour (acrylic/wool, worsted weight) for the monocle and chain. Everything uses a hook one size smaller than the yarn recommends (using an H for the Deborah Norville yarns and a G for the Plymouth).

At my mother's suggestion, I ripped out the embroidered monocle chain I wasn't happy with and replaced it with a loose chain sewn in at each end (behind the monocle and inside the fob pocket). Much better.

This is so cool. My son crochets and he thinks your animals (especially Colonel Eggplant) are super. I like the improved chain. Good detail. Good job!
