Notes

Using the leftovers of the bulky Charlotte that I used in the Orcas Run Cowichan sweater. Bobbles are slow knitting, but this is going to be cute! Just noticing that I queued this over 4 years ago. Love that I am finally making this project!

I didn’t end up using all the yarn even though I had to rip back and reknit because I was going to run out. I guess I got a little too conservative. Oh well. It’s a little smaller than it should have been and I would have had enough yarn to make it larger. That’s a little disappointing.

Ended up using some black handspun Wensleydale singles from commercial top for the head. I also stuffed the head very lightly.

I’ll be washing and blocking before I stuff this so I’m going to make the legs separately, wash them as well, and then sew on the legs. Oops! Decided not to make any legs. :-)
