     soft white yarn
     warm brown yarn
     * colors based on Red Heart Super Saver yarn

     scissors

Abbreviations Used:
     Rnd(s) --- round(s)
     ch --- chain
     sc --- single crochet
     st/sts --- stitch/stitches
     sc2tog --- single crochet 2 stitches together

Notes:
     --- Be sure to move the stitch marker up as you complete each round.
     --- Squeakers to place inside the toy can be found at craft stores and large pet supply stores.
