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 (in grams - estimated for acrylic which is lighter than natural fibres):
200g DK weight white yarn, 100g DK weight orange yarn, 100g DK weight black yarn
