Snoopy and Woodstock just go together. So what else could I do but make Woodstock too? It was by request and I needed to do him quickly so I used the yarn I had on hand. But to make him more to scale with my Snoopy pattern he could be made with a smaller gauge yarn. Hope you enjoy the happy little guy! He’s got to be my personal favorite of the Peanuts characters!

I kinda squish and pinch everything into the right shape as I make these little pieces… and also sew in tails carefully and deliberately to pull wings, feet and such into the right places.
