Size: 15.5cm tall & 17.5cm wide with ears, 14.5cm tall & wide without ears.

Difficulty: Experienced

Notes: This pattern is written in English, US crochet terminology and SI units are used throughout. I use a smaller hook size than the yarn calls for to get tighter stitches. Piper is crocheted top down in continuous rounds. All measurements are approximate & will vary with your yarn & tension.
