Meet Mr. Nubbins

By popular request, the Mr. Nubbins pattern is now available for purchase in my ravelry store and etsy shop!  All you need is a skein of Malabrigo Rasta, some safety eyes, buttons, and a couple of days to make the cutest gift anyone could hope to receive this season.

Be warned, however - Mr. Nubbins may look innocent and cute, but he is actually quite the rascal.  Even when he isn't getting into trouble, he doesn't mind being the scapegoat for the occasional messy room or missing batch of cookies.  He plays well with others, but has been known to stack the deck when playing Go Fish.

The details:

Price: $6

1 skein Malabrigo Rasta  150g/90 yds, 100% Merino
Small amount of black worsted-weight scrap yarn
Small amount of worsted-weight scrap yarn in contrasting color (for bowtie)
Set of US #13 double-pointed needles
Set of US #6 needles (any type)
3 stitch holders
Pair of 8mm safety eyes
Poly-fil stuffing
Tapestry needle

Optional:  3 small buttons in contrasting color

Finished measurements:
Mr. Nubbins stands 11 inches tall from bottom of legs to tops of ears. He is approximately 11.5 inches around the waist (excluding arms).

K2tog: Knit 2 sts together (decrease 1 st)
Kf&b: K 1 stitch through the front loop, then k it again through the back loop before pulling it off the LH needle onto the RH needle. (increase 1 st)
