I made this because I'm currently addicted to knitting amigurumi and want to challenge myself to make amigurumi with stranded knitting. I got the idea to make a zebra (its head...) from my son's book titled Zoo, with a zebra head on the cover.
I made it using 1 skein of black Lion Brand Wool Ease and 1 skein of white Vanna's Choice, size 5 needles (dpns & circular). No pattern. I just 'sculpted" the head as I go.
