I don't remember where I first saw this. I used the photo steps and just winged the rest of it. I did find the instructions after the fact.
I learned that this was an excerpt from a book called Happy Gloves: Charming Softy Friends Made from Colorful Gloves by Miyako Kanamori. Even without the written instructions it was an easy and fun project.
The squirrel directions don't specify how big a glove to use. I can recommend that when choosing a glove to look at the distance between the fingers and the palm, that's the section that will become the body. The glove I used was a knit stretch to fit and I wasn't completely happy with it. My squirrel looks more like me, short and stocky. hee, hee
