A little crocheted marmot
I found the pattern for this wonderful little marmot from Ravelry. My son loves marmots and this was a perfect gift for him. I had some scraps of yarn already in my possession, so I started crocheting this on Christmas day when I was visiting my parents. This was a great little holiday project!
