I knitted a 13" tall nude man for a friend, then typed up and posted the pattern on LiveJournal.

I got permission from Leah to post a link here, on condition I issued a warning of what you'll see if you follow the link, so:

WARNING: Linked material includes NWS images, unsuitable for children.  If you click on the link below, you'll see a naked, knitted male, complete with manparts and accompanying body hair. Later pictures include close-ups of knitted manparts in the making.

I also knitted him jeans and a cardy in case he feels the chill. Cheesy

Have fun!

EDIT: When I first posted this pattern I didn't have enough posting history to be able to add a photo, but now I have, so here's my original doll, F1 racing driver Kimi Raikkonen, relaxing not-quite-nekkid at the seaside. Smiley

The doll I knitted in order to type out and illustrate the pattern turned out to be... Morrissey! And yes, I scaled down the pattern to make him a little Johnny Marr. Just like old times, eh, lads? Bless!

Thanks. I'm not sure what my husband makes of finding half-knitted, naked men on the settee, though.  Cheesy

I had a go, some time back, at knitting a female (clothed) figure, but the bust shapings left holes all over her chest so I gave up!

Its a proper faff, the body hair, I'll warn you.  Glad you like him, though. Smiley

i'm so glad he's anatomically correct!  I always felt so bad for those ken dolls and their plastic 'package'.

very cute!
