  • CONSTRUCTION

    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.

    GAUGE

    17 sts and 26 rnds = 4" / 10cm in st st in the rnd.
    Because the finished size isn’t important different yarn weights can be used. Use a needle 2-3 sizes smaller than the suggested needle for that yarn to obtain a tight gauge that won’t allow stuffing to show through.
