This is a newer version of my Tedmund Troll pattern. The toy hasn’t been changed much from the original version, but the rucksack is a little bigger, and the belt now has an added pouch. The hammer is not included in this version.

Pattern is advanced beginner level. Skills required include stockinette and ribbed stitches, k2tog, ssk, and centred double decrease (s2kp), m1 and fkb increases, bobbles, intarsia, and mattress stitch. All pieces are knit flat and then seamed, stuffed, and assembled.
