Ghair Under the Chair

The GHAIR under the CHAIR! 

EASY crochet creation with amazing yarn!

For both my sons, one of their favorite books is Dr. Seuss' There's a Wocket in My Pocket. My younger son, a toddler, has taken fancy to the character of Ghair that hides under the chair. He has been obsessed with the character to the point where my husband joked and told me to "crochet him a Ghair one day, just to surprise him."
I wasn't sure if the type of yarn it would take to make a "furry" toy would be easy to crochet or knit with, but I decided to keep my eyes and ears open for a green yarn that would serve the purpose. A few days ago, Mikey from The Crochet Crowd mentioned that Bernat made a yarn called Tizzy. A short shopping trip to Michael's Store and I found it in green!!

I don't have an actual pattern written out for the Ghair because it is difficult to keep track of stitches when using the Tizzy yarn. It was easy to work it up, and I literally free-handed the head, body, limbs, and tail for the Ghair. I made two tiny pom-poms using the Fork technique with black yarn for the Ghair's eyes and crocheted a small black triangle for the nose.

Here are some pictures of the Ghair!

If you would like a rough and ready pattern for this, please comment or send me an email and I will be more than happy to write one up for you.
