I knit this for the Magic Yarn Ball swap.  I used 3.5mm needles (straight for the body, and double points for the head).  I crocheted the nose and used black felt for the eyes.  Big thanks to Mishymishy for her crocheted Zero (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=201505.0) as I used her pattern as a guide.  I made it a little smaller (ie estimated 4 stitches where she had 6 stitches) and knitted in stockinette stitch.  Now for the fun part, some pictures.

You are an absolute genius!! I'd been wanting to see a knit version of the crochet version (major props to Mishymishy).

Love his cherry nose!  Cheesy

Thanks for all the great comments.  It was actually a lot easier than I expected to switch it from crochet to knit, although it sure helps that he's supposed to look floaty (ie it's okay that it curls).

Eeeee!  This makes my happy happen!  Next you should make the skeleton doggie from Corpse Bride.  (Though he might be better crocheted, for stability...)
