I've taken on an odd little design challenge- I'd like to make a little Zebra costume for my daughter's My Little Ponies. I'm using some of the left over yarn I had from the striped Broadripple socks. Although I am not concerned with copying a zebra pelt perfectly- I would like to have the stripe contour and the shaping work together- I'd also like to knit it in one piece with minimal sewing in the end. This shows my third attempt at this- having tried and failed at a face first approach and then a hem line up approach- this one starts at the tail hole- and I remembered to keep a nice dorasl stripe this time.
