Dear Gerrie:

This latest Ratty is based on the same pattern as for Green Ratty. I cast on three sts and worked in stockinette stitch, increasing one stitch at the beginning of every row until the Ratty seemed to be the “right size” (about three inches at its back end). Then I sewed it most of the way closed, stuffed with raw sheep fleece, and finised closing. I decorate with whiskers at the nose and a monk’s cord tail.

Nikkers has hidden this one already…mostly because he doesn’t want to share with his brother!

loads of love,
Mary Ellen
