***WARNING*** This pattern is addictive. You will start knitting the first one, and the next thing you know you have herds of them following you about the house. It knits up quickly in the round, mostly in one piece with just a little seaming under the chin. The pattern uses basic increases and decreases for shaping. The instructions are written row by row, with stitch descriptions and photos, and cheezombie is available for help via email or convo. Examples are knit with worsted weight (8 or 10 ply) cotton yarn and 3.25mm needles. Finished measurements are 8 inches tall and 4 inches from belly to edge of fin, but size may vary with choice of yarn & needle. Multiple finishes are included.
