Go to explosm.net to see what I'm talking about. I've made a C&H character!
He doesnt have a face because I forgot until the head was sewn up and stuffd. Doesn't matter, I'll be making plenty more of these! This was just practice!
Thoughts?


**PATTERN**
Needles- size not important, just make they fit gauge; 1 set of straights, 1 set of DPNs, same size.
Gauge- Not important, just kind of tight, so the stuffing doesnt show

Head-
CO 6st
1. knit
2. purl
3. kfb every st (12sts)
4. purl
5. *k1, kfb* along row (18sts)
6. Purl
7. *k2,kfb* along row(24sts)
8. Purl
9. *k3,kfb* along row(30sts)
10. Purl
11. knit
12. purl
13. Knit
14. Purl
15. *K2tog, k3* along row (24sts)
16. purl
17. *K2tog, k2* along row(18sts)
18. Purl
19. *K2tog, k1* along row (24sts)
20. Purl
21. *K2tog * along row (6sts)
22. purl
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for seaming; or, rather than ending it off here, cut down on seaming and knit 1 row in stockinette st. and go straight to the body.

Body
If you didnt end off the head, CO 6st; if you did, ignore this.
1. knit
2. purl
3. kfb every st (12sts)

5. *k1, kfb* along row (18sts)

17. Knit
18. Purl
19. Knit
20. purl
21. k2tog,k4,k2tog,k2,k2tog, k4, k2tog (14sts)
22. Purl
23. Knit
24. purl
25. K2tog, k10, k2tog (12sts)
26. Purl
27. *K2tog* along row (6sts)
28. purl
29. BO, leaving a long yarn tail
At this point, you should embroider a face, and not be an idiot like me. Stuff the thing and seam it up.

Arms and legs
Pick up 2 stitches with a DPN where the arms should go and i-cord until it is arm length
Do the same on the other side.
Pick up 2 stitches with a DPN where a leg should do and i-cord until it looks like a leg. Do the same for the other leg, unless your C&H character is a pirate, in which case you could make a stubby i-cord leg with brown yarn.
DONE!

Yup, I'll probably have a pattern up by the weekend, as soon as I make it better; now, it has tons of seaming, and I'm just trying to cut down on that.
