This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms. With this easy pattern, you can make a realistic looking cheetah. Size of finished cheetah sitting made with worsted weight yarn: 5.5 inch / 14 cm. THE CROCHET PATTERN CONTAINS An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right. SUPPLIES NEEDED 3 colours of worsted weight yarn: oatmeal (1/3 of a 100 yard skein), black brown (1/6) and white (leftover bit). You will also need fibrefill and pellets for extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads). PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result. GAUGE Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
