So cute! I love this yarn. Very soft and easy to work for cotton. I can’t decide if he needs eyes. He’s kinda cute without.

I think the only change I made was to the feet. I cast on 36 sts and worked the instructions for the foot after the toes. After the legs were all done, I went back to the foot and picked up 12 sts for each toe and knit them like the fingers of a glove, essentially. I knit the toe instructions backwards, essentially, and did the decreases like every other decrease in the pattern. I love the way those decreases look!

Super cute pattern. Might be my go-to for new babies. :)

I decided he needed eyes after all. He is SO CUTE! John was sad to see him leave, so I have to make him one. :)
