A three-inch tall tiny Obama to help you proclaim your support for our president! Worked in the round using fingering weight yarn, Obammie can be easily sized up by using thicker yarn. He can be created with yarn scraps. All of the details besides the skin (brown) and suit (black) use less than a foot of yarn, so I would suggest using scraps instead of buying yarn. Even use embroidery thread or split a thicker yarn into plies.

The pattern includes written instructions and photos to help you along the way. Besides some optional colorwork for his suit, the pattern would be fine for an advanced beginner who is comfortable working on DPNs.

I am offering this pattern for free. This is my first time writing up a pattern. It has been extensively self-tested, but please contact me if instructions are not clear or you need help.
