This is so cute.  I am thinking if you use different color, it will become a different animal.  If I use blue for the MC, it will become Eeyore.  The possibilities are endless. Wink

The best tip I can give you is to find someone who can knit, and ask them to teach you!  It's infinitely easier than trying to teach yourself from a book.  Start with something really easy.  I recommend a book called Knit a Square & Make a Toy.  Good luck!   Smiley

K2, INC1, K2 INC1, K2, INC1 -- this will make 12 st.

INC1 means knit back of the stitch (like normal), but don't slip the stitch from the left needle.  Then knit again on the front of the stitch.

Hope this help.  If not, take a look at knittinghelp.com and look at the video.
