Mr. Dangly has so much charm!  Thank you so much for the gracious pattern.  I am in a knitted 'toy' making kick right now, so this might need to be added to the to-do list.

I finished my acrylic worsted Mr. Dangly, so pictures are soon to come but Nutella I also bought some Target yarn and I was wondering what needle size too.. I can't wait to start my fuzzy monkey! Grin

I asked kathyruth and she said it was two strands held together, she thinks on size 6 needles. A single strand would call for a size 4 needle (I checked their "pattern books"- also in the $1 section) and that's what it said for a regular knitted item (like the wine bottle bag).

I can't wait to start him. STILL have to attach poor Mr. Dangly #1's limbs! He has a scarf and a tail and no arms or legs! eep!

I just finished a Mr. Dangly of my own.


I added the scarf to sturdy up the neck a bit, but otherwise I'm really happy with how he turned out.

I started knitting my Mr. Dangly 2 nights ago and I'm onto the legs already, a really easy pattern to follow! Smiley

I was making a Mr. Dangly with yarn from my stash since I'm totally broke and jobless... but I ran out of yarn! So mine only has a body, head and two arms. Sigh. I guess he'll have to hang out in my yarn bag for a while until I can afford to complete him.  Cry

ambrdawn, don't feel bad- my Mr. Dangly was without arms OR legs for nearly 2 months! I just sewed all 4 on to him minutes ago... pictures coming soon!

And here he is in all his hand-dyed yarn and stoned button-blue eyes. (With a rather un-glam and very shiny me!)



Yeah... I wouldn't recommend modifying the arm and leg patterns... They look ok now, but as I was doing it, I was quite worried. I *did* make his face quite a bit shorter (I did not include any of the rows between 'switch to fawn' and the start of the decreases.)

The next one is being made exactly as the pattern states!

I finished my Mr. Dangly a couple of days ago (he took a mere 4 days to knit!), sorry about the photo quality.. you'd think I'd have learned how to use a digital camera by now!





I'm lazy though, I did my Mr. Dangly all in knit stitch because I can't get my head around purling and decreasing and increasing at the same time!  He's definitely got a "handmade" look to him because of this!

I've got requests for more Mr. Dangly's now, all I wanted to do was use up some wool I bought from a charity shop! Smiley

He also has a little scarf, he was far too dangly without it.

Yay!  I finally finished my Mr. Dangly.  Here he is in all his glory, chillin' on the couch.  Note that I HATE seaming things up, so I ended up frogging him a couple times and then giving in and knitting all the parts except the head in the round on dpns.  Worked great!  He also has embroidered eyes in order to make him child safe.  He's going to find a new home in MN with a two year old. Smiley



And more gratuitous shots...


Here he is scaling the arm of the couch.  He's quite an active fellow...
