New Elmo Peep

October 2012
DK (11 wpi) ?
Dependent on thickness of yarn and size of needles
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

gauge is not important As long as the fabric is tight enough that the stuffing won’t show through - thicker yarn and larger needles will make a larger version of Elmo. Less than a skein of yarn is needed.

This is a newer, Improved, version of my Elmo Peep - not double knit this time, but knit in the round on two circular needles, from bottom to top. He comes out a lot neater without the inherent gaps that exist from the slipped stitches in double knitting. And the increases are simpler without the inside out double knitting.

He is a very quick and easy knit for an experienced knitter, using some advanced, but easy techniques, such as Kitchener stitch, and three needle bind off. When you are done knitting, except for adding his face, there is no sewing up to do! Yay! :o)
