The striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis) is common to most of North America and Canada . They are crepuscular omnivores, coming out at dawn and dusk to feed on almost anything small enough to swallow, including insects, small mammals and birds, berries, frogs, grain, honeybees and yes, human garbage and pet food. Florizel is a typical adult male, with a lovely long striped tail and a powerful pair of scent glands: excellent protection against every predator except the great horned owl, which has almost no sense of smell.
Florizel is crocheted primarily in the round in black and white, with a bit of pink used to embroider his nose and toes. His stripes are created by “latch hooking” lengths of black and white yarn through the stitches of his body. You will need three colors of yarn (White, Coal, scrap of Blossom Heather) in Wool of the Andes Worsted Weight, two black shank buttons, a yarn needle, a chenille needle (sharp point) and a hook which will give a nice tight stitch (I used a 3.25mm). Gauge is important only so far as it is consistent throughout the piece.
