Yarn Used:
Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in the following colors:
Burnt Pumpkin

To give him the rough/dirty appearance I stayed away from a bright white and bright orange combo but if you’re looking for that bright and shiny appearance you may want to try a brighter orange and cleaner white.

When recreating him I made some adjustments to the head that I think made it more proportionate. The head seen in the pictures here will not be identical to the head the pattern should produce. Very similar, but not identical.

To be specific:
The pictured head has two rows of white separating the grey and orange, the new pattern only has one.
The pictured head has sc orange and white pattern at the bottom, new pattern has half doubles to make the colors stand out a bit more.
