Lemme tell you, this pattern is crazy! It's for a whole Jackalope body too, which I started to knit as well, and it's just amazing how Hansi Singh forms the curves and crevices of the hind legs and body all in one piece! I had intended on starting this head lower down on the neck, but it was difficult to tell where in the middle of the pattern I should start (the pattern is knit from butt to head). I'm happy with how the embroidery turned out since I usually suck at that part.
I tried to make him look like this Jackalope I painted, that you can see on my messy wall here:
I also made this cute kitty last week. He's got such personality! Just have to finish his tail.
