Mine turned out taller than everyone else's....I followed the head and arms patterns to the T, but I altered the legs to add two more rows of white because I thought they were too short and I altered body part  because I found it extremely confusing. I worked it from top to bottom and I think you meant bottom to top...I'm not sure. Regardless, I ended up with a thin and tall Marvin...but I like him.

I thought you people would appreciate this, sorry if it's off-topic:


This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands...

You can do whatever you want with this picture - icons, whatever ^_^

EDIT: - this one is the right size for emoticons on MSN messenger.  Um, I think.  Am I a nerd or what?

Oh wow that is really cute.  I love the books, but haven't seen the movie.  You make some amazing stuff.

Dude, that's amazing. I loved that movie so much, although I didn't really like the book... not my type of book I guess.

My boyfriend saw your doll and was like "HOLY CRAP! I want one!" Then I told him that I don't know how to knit so he told me he was going to break up with me for you just so he could get you to knit him one of those dolls! Haha, he's so weird and nerdy sometimes!

Once again, you and your doll rock so much!

I went out and rented the movie pretty much right after reading all of this the other day, and I've started on my marvin.  I'm making him in Lionbrand Homespun, so he should be hugenormous, and extra soft!  Smiley

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

I'm working on it right now. I'm surprised, it's really easy and quick-going. Fun!! I'll probably be done in a day or two. My sister will be so happy - Marvin was supposed to be a present when she was at camp in June, then her birthday present in August...  Undecided

I made a Marvin for my friend as a Christmas gift.  (I think it's safe to post here because as far as I know she doesn't visit Craftster.)

I made up my own pattern for the head but it was a mess and now tyhe back of his head is pretty wonky.  Whatever, it's just the back.  I changed the intarsia on the face just a tad, and the arms and legs were knit in the round so I could avoid seaming.  I even picked up stitches from the body to make the arms so I didn't have to sew them on.



He reminds me of a fetus, and my sewing job wasn't that great, but I think my friend will like him.

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

These Marvins are great! I'm supposed to be working on Christmas gifts but I keep seeing all of these awesome projects on Craftster and I'm getting sidetracked. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to try to knit one up.

This may be a dumb question since so many of you have figured him out but is he knit on straight or circular needles?

For the bits with intarsia, you would have to knit him flat. However, I think I'm going to reknit the arms and legs in the round because I REALLLLLLLLLY am hating the seaming.

To the person who picked up stitches for the limbs, what exactly did you do - how many stitches, how did you stuff them? I want to try that...
