Purled Tissue Sweater

Gesundheit but with the center cable from Trellis on each side. Knitted on size 7, 16 inch circ and dpns in Pattons Classic Merino Aran. Fun little knit.

Regarding the squirrel. I followed the pattern just as I did for the first squirrel, but this time on 10.5 sized needles for the body and 11 for the tail as directed. I can't remember what sized needle I used for the first, but I know it was smaller, like a 6 or an 8 for both the body and tail, can't quite remember why.

The suggested needle sizes produced a better body to tail ratio. Bigger tail, more fluffage for the tail. Felted, Fun Fur Squirrel Tails require large amounts of fluffage.
