Artemis the Sloth Astronomer

New Pattern Release!

Artemis the sloth spends his life in the trees staring at his garden of stars. He clings to his telescope, which he hangs from the tree branches, and is becoming quite a keen bird watcher by day. When the sun comes up he turns his lens to the Earth and ponders on how the animals below manage to spend their lives upside down and never fall off the ceiling.

Artemis measures about 7-8 inches sitting in a DK yarn, but he can be made from any weight yarn and appropriate hook for different sizes. It is an easy pattern to follow with plenty of diagrams and you will always be welcome to contact me for any extra help.
