Impkin: Trout


This is Trout. He is one of the tribal hunters. He specializes in fish tickling and various aquatic foods. Fish tickling is a skill that requires immense patience, and careful movements. His coloring is designed to camouflage him so he can glide through the streams, rivers and lakes to find his prey.

This Impkin has Type 2 Arms* with the Standing Body Type 2*. His head fin is actually two Fin Ears* stitched together, back to back and then sewn to the head.


During his trips to the various water ways around his tribal home, he found a friendly salamander, which he has adopted as a pet. He often takes it with him on his travels, comfy in his wearable carry basket.


The carry basket is an adaptation of the Backpack* pattern. I tried to choose yarn that would look like natural fibers woven together. Trout also uses this basket to carry home his catch of the day.

This is the completion of the WIP I showed you last week. I think this yarn worked out perfectly for Trout!
