Description

A squirrel suit I made for this year’s Cortège. The Cortège is a annual carnival at 30th April, held by us Chalmers students in Gothenburg.

I used a basic pattern for the sweater, but everything else I kind of threw together. I’m especiallt proud of the hat.

And yes, we built that wheel ourselves, just with straigth pieces. You can take a look of us in action here at 2.30.

Material Notes

Yarn, and some sort of brown cotton (?).

    Thanks for all comments!

    “Arbetarna sliter, kursen går ner I chefens spargris hamnar allt mer”

    roughly translates to:

    The workers toil, the finance goes down In the boss’ piggy bank more ends up

    Hence the giant piggy bank in the back :)

    Absolutely brilliant, and well done on the wheel. What does your banner say?
