[b]As always, questions and comments are welcome and appreciated![/b]

First, many thanks to aphid777 for her AWESOME PATTERN GO GIVE HER LOVE.

Second, I am so proud of this. This is fantastic, I'm in love with him. I haven't made anything for myself for a long time (since Casey, really), and....He's just perched on my piano now.

For specs, check out the pattern! Otherwise, he's random bulk buy white yarn, Vanna's Choice, wire, and old pillow!

What gage wire did you use for his body?

I'm not entirely sure; my dad is a home renovator, and he gave me a large spool of blue-wrapped electrical wire that I use for all my large wire projects. Sorry I can't be more helpful!

Maybe I can though? The original pattern came from aphid777 , perhaps ask them what they used?

Cheers!

For his size, he really didn't take all that long; I suppose it's cause he's big but snake-like instead of bulky!

You're welcome!

Quick question!  Where can you get the wire that makes it poseable?

The thick wire running through his body is 14 gauge electrical wire (solid) that my dad had lying around. It's covered in plastic that makes it safe and nice to handle and is thick enough to support weight without being too thick to fit in tips of tails or noses.The wire in his horns and whiskers is picture frame wire, and is braided.

Oh.  Thank you!

I've been really interested in using wires with amigurumi.  I'm thinking about trying it. :)

Yep! You can get the big posing wire at any hardware store :D
