Thought I'd share an image of Chameleon, as he is so far:
I don't know if you can tell, but the navy wool is SPARKLY. (Actually, this was the whole reason behind choosing to do a chameleon.) Unfortunately, this means he'll only be cleverly camouflaged in a disco-ball factory.
Am still a bit unsure about the colours I've chosen, but there is no going back now. It's taken me 5 weeks to get to this stage! I chose to work from the tail backwards along the animal, because the tail is super fiddly to work and I didn't want to be swearing at it with the weight of the whole toy hanging from it. Plus, the tail was the unknown quantity for me in this pattern.
I estimate there are over 200 yarn breaks/changes in the tail alone, so this isn't a pattern to make for a relaxing time. But what price beauty? Actually, you'd have an easier life if you made the toy in a self-striping wool, but I wanted to make sure that my instructions placed colour changes in the right places, so I took the rough road. Hey-ho.
Chameleon or Ammonite, you decide ;-)
