I can’t remember their name, but someone asked me to make a crochet squirrel YouTube video tutorial. She had purchased a crochet written pattern from someone else and couldn’t understand how to make it. She wanted to make the crochet squirrel for her father who absolutely loved squirrels. I think she said that her father loved to feed them.
When I finished my crochet squirrel “Chip,” my husband loved him and so did my father. So “Chip” makes a wonderful Father’s Day Gift!! I am making 2 of “Chip” for Father’s Day gifts.
After I finished “Chip,” I thought that he resembled a crochet skunk named “Pepe Le Pew,” and that is how the crochet skunk was born.
Then I thought, how can you have “Pepe Le Pew” without “Penelope the Cat?”
I then thought that “Chip” needed a girlfriend, and “Rebel” was born.
There is a paid written pattern available on Ravelry, here is the direct link:
