i made this little guy last night.  he thinks he's better than everyone else.  He has a Napolean complex.




His pattern is here:

Materials:

size G hook

cotton yarn (i used peaches n cream)

felt

glue

eyes

Body:

6 sc in ring

rd1: 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)

rd2: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (18 sc)

rd3: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc around (24 sc)

rd4-8: sc in each sc around (24 sc)

rd9: dec sc, sc in next 2 sc around (18 sc)

rd10: dec sc, sc in next sc around (12 sc)

rd11: dec sc, sc in next 5, dec sc, sc in rest (10 sc)

rd12: sc in each sc around (10 sc)

rd13: 2 sc in each sc around (20 sc)

rd14-17: sc in each sc around (20 sc)

rd18: sc in first 10 sc, 2 sc in next 3 sc, sc in rest ( 23 sc)

rd19 & 20: sc in each sc around (23 sc)

rd21: in Back Loop only,  dec sc, sc in next 2 sc around

rd22: dec sc, sc in next around

rd23: dec sc around

finish off, weave in ends.

Stuff body before closing. Take a small square of felt, fold diagonally, cut a circle on one side to get the beak shape. glue to head. then glue on eyes. cut out wings, feet, and O, and glue on. All done!!!!!

This pattern has so not been tested.  Its pretty much a head and body in one. If it doesnt look right when youre making it, then make it look right.  You wanna end up with a narrow hourglass shape, with a teeny tiny bit of junk in the trunk.  Enjoy!!!!

I love the use of felt on him. Too cute! His face looks like he's wearing armor.

When i cut the felt for the beak, the leftover piece looked like armour to me also!! So that's what i ended up using!!
