Furry Pal

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

16 single crochet + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with 2 strands of A held together. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Furry Pal Reviewed by Gratia Taft on 2008-10-11 *****
I LOVE this pattern. It's soo cute and easy. I didn't use the colors sugested tho. In fact, I didn't use fun fur, I used a softer yarn so it was slightly shorter. But I'm in the process of making another one with fun fur. I'll definetly recomend this to friends who want a unique funky pillow.
