Shortly before I finished the Jeep blanket and started making horses, I made a moose! This has quickly become the style that I prefer for land animals, and was definitely the main inspiration behind the new horse design.
I made this little guy for a friend's nephew, and he has loved it ever since! Adter getting it, I hear he only parted with it for a short time: so Grandpa could play too.
There are a few things I absolutely love about the moose. The brown works really well for his coloring, and I'm glad to have been able to add this color to my stash. My favorite coloring choice is using Red Heart's "Woodsy" yarn for the antlers. It fits so perfectly, and I would easily be able to incorporate it other ways. I love the look that the verigation gives the moose. I also really love how the purple eyes still pop off the brown.
