Grumpy troll or misunderstood old man?  No one knows with this guy.  I am so pleased with this one.  This turned out exactly like my original sketch, so much so that I even surprised myself!

The shaping of the body is pretty simple.  What makes this guy stand out is his features: the long nose, the stubby fingers, and the lumpy boots.  Single ply yarn makes for dready locks.  You’ll be surprised how fast this one knits up. 


The Details:

Yarn: worsted weight wool or blend of your choice
Yardage: less than 50yds of skin color, a bot less for pants and boots, plus small bits for embellishments
Gauge: 6sts/ inch in stockinette
Suggested needle size: US size 5, either 4 DPNs or one long circular
Finished measurements:  approximately 7.5″ tall
Price: $3

Buy the trio as a set!
