Huffin' Puffin by Amanda Berry
Needles & yarn

I chose to start sewing on the eyes when the puffin was flat and the wings when the puffin was only partially stuffed. This made managing the yarn ends easier to do and allowed me to use doll safety eyes.

The instructions are written in a very detailed way, but I was still confused by how to sew on the wings until I realized they are mostly horizontal with a slight angle and not vertical like I was trying to make them.

I heavily modified the Viking helmet from the Erik pattern to make one that would fit and incorporated 3-stitch bobbles. If I were to do it again, I’d add a couple more rows to make the helmet a bit bigger and maybe decrease the center garter panel down to 5 sts.
