Notes –

– The above raccoon measures 14 inches tall. Difference in tension, yarn or hook size may produce a slightly taller or shorter finished product.
– Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in a continuous round; I recommend using a stitch marker at the beginning or end of each round.
– For this pattern, the body and head will be made as one piece.

Assembly

1. Sew the ears onto either side of the head, starting at the 5th round and ending at the 11th round.
2. Next, sew the arms on at round 26.
3. Third, attach the legs covering a span of about 4 rounds. I sewed mine from rounds 2-5. Be sure each foot is facing forward as you sew. (Note: For firmer legs add a little bit of stuffing just before finishing.)

4. Lastly, sew the tail onto the bottom center of the back. I sewed along the bottom of the tail as well as 1 inch up on each side to help hold its shape in an upward position.
