Photo Jun 12, 3 22 19 PMHere is a super fun, easy pattern that works up real quick!  I make these all the time and get asked for the pattern quite a bit.  I wanted to share the pattern with you so here you go!

I have made them as ornaments, toys (with safety eyes) and I even have one hanging on my car mirror. He is my little buddy when I am driving. I love how I can use my scrap yarn and the color combinations are endless!
