Raccoon Crochet Pattern with Movable Head and Legs by oohlookitsarabbit
This Adobe Pdf file is my original design crochet pattern for a pose able standing or lying down raccoon. The written pattern is illustrated with photos showing every step in the construction of the raccoon.
The pattern is crocheted in a continuous spiral and requires knowledge of the following stitches (including increases and decreases): chain, slip stitch, and single crochet.
Item size will depend on the weight of yarn used. I crocheted my sample with Loops and Threads Impeccable worsted weight acrylic yarn and size F crochet hook. Sample size is about 4" tall, about 12" long including the tail, and 5 1/2" wide between the two front feet. The pattern was designed with a teddy bear disk type joint between the head and body and thread jointing of all four legs, so she is quite pose able.
