Benny says, “HI!”

This was a real treat to make. Not only is he super cute (har har) but I learned a lot while making him. The instructions were pretty clear and the explination of stitches at the beginning of the book helped a lot. There was a moment of confusion while making the face (the green part around the eyes) but I’m pretty sure it was because it was late and because of my inexperiance in reading patterns.

The rundown: 

  •  I didn’t have any eyes so I made two bobbles. The husband says he likes the yarn eyes better.
  • Without eyes I was also unable to attach the arms the way the book described (so that they can move up and down).
  • One leg is a teeny bit longer then the other because I pulled on one of them a bit too hard while stuffing.
  • I’m in love with the bobble toes and thumb. How clever!
  • He’s very tall. About 15 inches high.

My nephew was over this weekend and he loved him! I’m surprised he didn’t ask if he could have him. I’m not sure what I would have said!

    How did you end up figuring out the face? I am also a little more inexperienced with reading patterns, but this is the first one I’ve had a problem with. I’ve tried it several times and I can’t seem to make it look right! If you would be willing to break it down for me, I would be so grateful!
