your question is a popular one -- it was just asked two pages ago:

The short answer is that if you stop when you have more stitches, break the yarn and thread it through, it ends up rounder.  I think I stopped at six or eight - basically ignore the last two rows or so.

A little while ago, I think someone was wondering about the post referring to the numbers going funny. Also me.

It's here:

both, really.  the problem is that they are too pointy, so just leave off the last 2 rows and draw your yarn through.  You might find the hands less boob-looking if you don't change colour, too.  Stuffing the arms firmly can also found out the hands.  But as a cure for the pointy bum, you'll definitely need to leave off the last few rounds.

cool -- I'd never heard of that one before.  thanks :-)

Here's my rendition of Mr. Dangly, though I haven't named him yet. Took me a while to make him, but it was a nice project to work on, even with a bad head cold. But I did have a heck of a time teaching myself increases. Is there a certain kind of increase that works best?



I think I'll be making him some relatives soon. Next time I think I'll make the tail longer, put a pipecleaner in it, and maybe try and teach myself how to knit in the round with dpns so I don't have to do all that seaming...

In regards to the pokey-butt syndrome, here's how I went about fixing it: 



I seamed the torso together starting at the top (black dashy line), and then when I was about an inch or so from the bottom, I folded the pointy part up, and seamed together the two sides of the "triangle" I had created. This made two smaller pokies, and this became his front. I attached his legs to the corners (bottom arrows), kind of "sheathing" the pokies. Then add his tail to the back to make a kind of tripod and sits up quite nicely.

Okay so I might be a little late to the Mr. Dangly scene but I wanted to post pics of my guy! I knit it completely in the round to cut down on as much seaming as I could. I also changed the bottom decreases of the body, because I am sure as you all know, they're incorrect on the original pattern. I also reworked the head so it is pretty much the same shape as the original but all done in the round. Hope you like him!

In my blog, I wrote down exactly what I changed and how I did the decreases for the body, and the head pattern on my blog if you're interested in making him this way. There are also several more pictures of him there! Happy knitting!

Oops I forgot to mention I made him out of Debbie Bliss Merino DK!
