This pattern was born over a long talk over coffee with a good friend about her real stinker of an ex-boyfriend. And let’s be honest. Who hasn’t had a friend whose ex-significant other you just wanted to throttle? Don’t you wish you could do something, anything, legal to express your loathing for him/her and make your friend feel just a tiny bit better? Well now you can! Knit them a voodoo doll in the image of their ex. You’ll at least make them smile.

Yarn: Scraps of worsted weight yarn – approximately 30 yards each of three colors. Can be knit in any weight yarn, though.
Gauge: About 5.5 sts/inch in stockinette, though that isn’t critical. Gauge should be a tight enough to keep the stuffing in.
Needles: US 7 or size needed to get desired gauge/fabric
Notions: darning needle, scrap yarn, stuffing, embroidery floss, scrap fabric
