A few years ago I made a drawing of a cute little ostrich chick with every intention of knitting him... Unfortunately life happened and I never got round to do so until now... and boy, am I glad I did! 

Knitting with faux fur can be a little tricky as stitch visibility is decreased but it does
makes up for it in snuggle factor!

Go ahead, give it a try. You won’t regret it :)
