I didn't design the tiger, it's from Joy Gammon's Easy to Make Knitted Toys.  It's an awesome book, if you can find it, unfortunately it's out of print.

Love this pattern.  I am almost done knitting all of his little parts, but before I start seaming him up... I just want to confirm that I only knit one of the body.  It's just one right?  Not two?

yep you only need to make one of the body Smiley when you've done you pull the yarn through the remaining stitches and seam up the side leaving a hole for the stuffing.

I am making Mr. Dangly in a few shades of blue cotton. Everyone loves the pattern! Cheesy

In a free knitting pattern kind of way.

I've finished Mr. Dangly's head and body, and stiched the two together. My Mr. Dangly is a bit bigger (knit with thicker yarn and on bigger needles!) than those shown, and though I only did 7 rows of the main head instead of 15 (so his head is a bit smaller) it's still quite heavy.

What I'm having trouble with is his head being quite floppy! I was even thinking that I'd stich his neck more firmly, then just knit him a scarf to hide the Frankendangly scars...

Is anyone else having trouble with Mr Dangly's head, well, dangling?

PS The pattern is AWESOME and so easy to follow!

yep, I must admit that it was his dangly head that earned him his name.  I compensated by stuffing firmer at the neck, and securing with extra stitches.  I also, like you, considered knitting him a scarf, as I thought it would help support his dangly head.  Good luck, and please show us how he turns out!

I agree with Nutella the pattern is great and easy to follow.  I'm almost done with my Mr. Dangly. I'll have to post a picture when he's done. I just started the first leg and what I have done so far has been assembled
I'm having trouble with the head dangling too much as well.  My mom and sister said to put a pipe cleaner of someother kind of wire straight up and down in the neck to help out.  I might try it because the poor guy can't hold his head up right now.
