Medium or #4 weight yarn
Size 8 needles or to match gauge. Use a circular set for finishing.
Button, approx. 7/8" diameter
Crochet hook, yarn needle and row counter (optional)
Gauge: 17 stitches by 24 rows equals a 4" x 4" square
Measure animal: Neck diameter in pattern is 9", Chest diameter is 14", from base of neck to front of tail is 10". (For adjustments: 4 stitches x 8 rows to the approx. inch.) The full diagram includes extra charted areas to allow for adjustments for size.
Calculate the amount needed for the adjustment and split it in half. Use this amount on either side edge. For example, to increase the neck size by an inch, add half an inch, or two stitches, to either edge. This sample addition is indicated on the charts in pale green. The neck runs a little small and you may want to make this adjustment.
