If you watched Netflix’s Tiger King documentary, you probably know a whole lot about a certain Oklahoma man named Joe Exotic. Whether you supported his views or not, I think we can all agree that Joe Exotic is a man like no other. From his obsession with big cats to his unorthodox marriage to his spontaneous stint as a presidential candidate, he’s someone you can’t forget easily. While Joe Exotic’s own future is uncertain, you can keep the one-and-only Tiger King’s memory alive by crocheting your own doll replica of him.

Etsy seller Allison Hoffman, who runs craftingiscoolcrochet, is currently selling a Tiger King crochet pattern for CA$10.37 ($7 USD). This pattern will guide you through all the steps to create a miniature Joe Exotic crocheted doll (also known as an amigurumi) as well as a little tiger cub to accompany him. From the mullet, to the eyebrow ring, to the knee brace, no detail is left out. Included are 21 pages of instructions, as well as 57 photos to help you breeze the process. It’s the perfect activity to pass time while stuck inside. Plus, crocheting is scientifically proven to make you happier and calmer. Do note that materials are not included and you are only purchasing the pattern.
