SPINES (aqua and white yarn)

In order to create the spines, cut very long strings of yarn and with a yarn needle embroider the bumps wrapping the yarn around a stitch a few times.

Use aqua yarn for the upper part of the body and the white one for the lower part.

I’d suggest starting embroidering at the top of the body, between rnds #2-3, and then working the bumps vertically leaving 4 rows between each bump.

All Finished.
