1½ yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
16 goldenrod or yellow pony beads
15 white pony beads
13 red pony beads
1 black pony bead
Black sharpie marker or craft paint pen for drawing on eyes.
Optional: Scrap of split goldenrod or yellow yarn, for whiskers and craft needle.
Special Instructions: Begin by adding on 1 white bead in the usual manner. On each side of the string, add 1 white and 1 goldenrod bead and go back through the white bead. Using one strand, add on 2 white, 2 goldenrod and 1 black bead. Weave back through the 2 goldenrod, and 2 white beads. Continue on with pattern. Add tail after completing the legs. You can make a straight tail by going through all of the beads like the arms or skip beads (as shown in pattern) to make a curly looking tail. Tie knots. If desired, using a craft needle, insert scrap of yarn through white beads on nose (as shown) for whiskers.
