What was your source for this knitting project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? Originally when I was asked to make a chinchilla for someone I searched all over the Internet but couldn't find any knitting patterns for a chinchilla. I decided to create my own and as I have only ever followed a pattern I was quite impressed with how it turned out! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Chinchillas are very fluffy animals so I suggest choosing a fluffy wool and gently back combing the wool after you've finished.
