Isn’t he a cutie? He can be a narwhal or a whale (you choose!).  Using a heavy worsted weight yarn he measures 17 inches long (horn included), so he is nice and big and cuddly.

I have to say, designing this guy was a bit of a challenge.  I decided early on that he needed to have a white belly, but this turned out to be tricky business. When working in the round without joining (ie. in a continuous spiral), your stitches shift slightly to the right with each round you crochet; because Walden’s belly is so long, I needed to make sure it did not look like it was going off to his side.  It took a few trials (you should see the pile of whales I have in my living room) but I think it worked out well!
