The body, head and antenna are worked in the round in one piece and stitches for the arms and wheels are picked up from the stuffed body. The pocket is actually a solution to a technical problem, I didn’t want to deal with working the intarsia panels on the front in the round, but nor did I want a seam: the pocket panel neatly fills the space.
