Note - This hasn’t been tech edited (although it has been knit several times) if you notice any errors let me know and I’ll get them fixed.
This uses some advanced knitting techniques (intarsia in the round) which is explained in my tutorial available here, but there is also the option to knit him flat (still using intarsia).
It also uses toe up sock cast ons and short row shaping.
Worsted can be used instead. He’ll be slightly bigger but look about the same.
Worsted yardage (estimated):
White: 310 yds, Orange: 240 yds, Black: 135 yds
DK yarn yardage:
500 yards DK weight white yarn, 250 yards DK weight orange yarn, 250 yards DK weight black yarn
