At this point, Netflix's latest docuseries Tiger King accounts for more than half of the POPSUGAR UK team's conversations, and we're showing no signs of slowing down. Our latest obsession (aside from the wild show itself) is a crochet pattern that helps you create a plush toy of Joe Exotic, and, no exaggeration, it's a dead ringer for the main man.

Created by the talented Allison Hoffman of Crafty Is Cool, the crocheted plush toy (more accurately referred to as amigurumi) is a re-creation of the now-iconic promotional photo of Joe Exotic — the only difference is the pattern helps you create a cute tiger cub instead of a full-size cat. On her Instagram, Hoffman shows off the crocheted toy from all angles, and the detail of this thing is incredible. From the signature mullet hairstyle to the eyebrow ring, necklace chains, and even a knee brace, Hoffman clearly doesn't do things by halves. At the moment, we're enjoying incorporating offline hobbies into our days to break up all the binge-watching sessions, and this looks like the perfect project to tackle next.

The Exotic Tiger Man Crochet Amigurumi Pattern (£7) is available to buy on the Crafty Is Cool Etsy page and includes 21 pages of detailed instructions, plus 57 photos to guide you through the intricate process.
