This is Pickles the Cat. He is a sweet creature knitted in the round, either in the magic loop or on dpns, your choice. There is minimal sewing in this pattern, I prefer it that way, don’t you? :) Even his tail can be knitted attached!
A rope bracelet - reminds me of making friendship bracelets back in the day. My right second toe used to go numb because I'd hook the end of the bracelet over it, and then knot embroidery floss for HOURS.
