(Mr Twig and Christmas Poo on page two)

I made this puppet for my friend's birthday. I hope he likes it!

He took 2-3 hours to knit. I didn't have a pattern, but based it off of this picture: http://www.csps.minx.co.uk/epiimgs/407/sp407_garrison.jpg

And here he is! (complete with my mom and dog..)

OMG, I love it! He looks ready to hop in the shower with Brett Favre with a side of Thousand Island dressing. If you get time, could you write a pattern?

Okay, here's the pattern- let me know if something needs clarification. I've never written one before. I based the pattern on a basic mitten pattern.

CO 36 sts on 6mm DPNS in purple
Knit in 1X1 ribbing for 2-3 inches
Knit one row all the way around

Then you start the hand gussets:
-knit 1, place marker. knit 18, place marker, knit 1, place marker, finish round.
-Increase 1 st, knit around to the next marker, increase 1 st. You should now have 2 sts in between the beginning of the row and the first marker, and in between the second and third markers.
-knit the next row
-increase the first stitch of the row, and then the last stitch before the first marker. then knit around to the second set of markers. increase 1 st after the first marker, then increase 1 st at the st before the second marker.
-knit the next row
-continue this pattern until there are 10 sts in between each set of markers.
-next round: knit across the first 10 sts of the row. put them on a stitch holder. then knit to the other set of markers, knit across those 10 sts, and place them on a marker.

- knit 3 more rounds with the purple.
-switch to a beigeish skin tone and knit 4 rounds.
-switch to black and knit 1 round.
- knit 3 rounds of red
-knit 3 rounds of white
-continue the red/white pattern until there are 3 red sections and 2 white sections. Cast off and sew the top of the hat closed.

-place the sts for one of the arms onto your DPNS and pick up an additional 4 sts from the body.
-knit 6 rounds. on the first of those rounds, knit the 4 sts you picked up together, so there are only two. this'll hopefully prevent giant holes.
- switch to beige, knit 3 rounds.
-on the next round, k2tog all the way around.
-take the needles out and thread the tail of the yarn through the sts and pull tight.
repeat for the other arm.

to make the hat brim, single crochet around the black row.

to make the beard and moustache, embroider with a tapestry needle and brown yarn.

There you have it!! I hope it makes sense.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*
