My own pattern - yay!!

Here's something like a pattern... since I made it up as I went along, there might be a few mistakes.
The body and the head are knitted in one piece, I knitted my Bob using the magic loop (http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/mloop.html), but dpns works as well.

Body: CO 34 st with blue yarn. Knit 13 rows.
Shirt: Change to intarsia 2x2 in red and yellow, K 8 rows. Row 9: dec 8 st: sl-K3tog-psso, K26, sl-K3tog-psso.
Head: Change to skin color yarn.
Row1: *K2, M1*.
Row2: K.

K 7 rows.
Row11: *K2, K2tog*.
Row12: K.
Row13: *K2, K2tog*.
Row14: *K2, K2tog*.
Draw yarn through remaining stitches, stuff the head, pull tightly. Stuff the body lightly. Hair is made out of 2 brown yarn pieces and sewed to the head.

With blue yarn pick upp 10 st at the pants upper edge, K6 rows in stockinet stitch. BO. Crochet two straps and attach to pants.

Legs (make 2): With blue yarn pick up 17 st around the CO edge. K in the round for 9 rows. Change to brown yarn, K 1 row. Make sure the following increases are made at the front of the leg in order to form the shoe:
Row1: K4, M1, K1, M1, K12.
Row2: K5, M1, K14.
K4 rows.
Row7: Change to yellow yarn, K.
Row8: *K1, K2tog*.
Row9: *K2tog*. Stuff leg, graft together rem. stitches.

Arms (make 2): CO 12 st. K 12 rows in intarsia pattern (2x2). Change to skin color, K 9 rows, draw yarn through stitches and pull tightly. Stuff arms and sew to body.

Helmet: With bright yellow or orange yarn CO 32 st. K 3 rows.
Row4: K3, turn, P3, turn, K3, turn, P3, turn, K3, K27.  
Row5: *K6, K2tog*.
Row6: *K5, K2tog*.
Row7: *K4, K2tog*.
Row8: *K4, K2tog*.
Row9: *K4, K2tog*.
Row10: *K3, K2tog*.
Row11: *K2, K2tog*.
Row12: *K1, K2tog*. Draw yarn through the 8 st and pull tightly.
Crochet edge: *sc, 2 sc in same st*. Sew helmet to head.

Finishing: Crochet belt and sew it on. Crochet something like a hammer. Embroidery the belt, eyes, nose and mouth. Tuck in loose ends.

Good luck!!
