In both child and adult sizes, Mr Boy is fun and intuitive to knit from the top down in a ribby pattern that is fully reversible--or substitute your own favorite 3 x 3 rib configuration.

For a tapered trunk, work the sleeve decreases on both sides of the body every 10th round. See designer philacraftina’s “Mohonk Mr” version for pics and a tip.
