Little Dracula Jr was the result of a secret tryst between Drac and Mina (just don't tell her husband, he thinks the kid is his).




He's knit on size 4 needles using assorted stash yarn. The shape of his body is based on the pattern for Kate from knitty, but I made his head a bit more round. The buttons on his jumper are bobbles that I knit in as I was going along. The cape was knit separately and whip stitched on around his neckline. It flares out at the collar and hem to exaggerate the shape. The little ties are crochet chains. His frilly collar was made by picking up stitches around his neck, then doing a picot bind-off. His hands were picked up along the sides of his body, then sewed them down do they'd "puff up" a bit from his body. I use The Cats Mother's technique for sewing in hair (tutorial here --naked knitted man if you scroll past the hair!). Even gave him a little widows peak, like Béla Lugosi! His mouth, teeth, and eyes were embroidered on.

Well that's all his specs. Hope to see more entries soon!

That is a very cute Dracula.
I love his big round belly. He must have eaten lots of people to get that.
He kinda reminds me of one of those clowns you could punch and they'd stand back up again.
