Tiny little Koala bear

As a substitute project for the concequences of my lost crochet hook, I've made a tiny little koala bear. My son instantly wanted to snuggle with "the new Totoro" (since my Totoro project, he calls every crochet creature for "Totoro") :) It's crocheted in wool with cotton/acrylic details, with a 3½ mm crochet hook, and I think I will brush him for a fuzzier look :)

And by the way, of course I had to slightly alter the pattern, 'cause I couldn't get the nose to look like the reference by following the instructions. Don't ask me how I altered it, I used double yarn and croched a bit like I thought would work. And it did! :)

The pattern can be found here.
