This right here is the one that started it all.  My friend Jane is currently growing her third child, due to be released some time next month.  Jane is an fellow knitter and I wanted to design something special just for her.  One night the chant “First is the worst, second is the best, third is the one with the hairy chest” popped in my head and I knew that third baby would need a hairy chested doll.



This guy’s large feet and wide hands allow him to stand on his own.  Half a skein of Cascade 220 will do you for this, plus a bit of extra contrasting yarn for the embellishments.




The Details:

Yarn: worsted weight wool or blend of your choice
Yardage: approximately 110yds, plus small bits for the hair and teeth
Gauge: 5sts/ inch in stockinette
Suggested needle size: US size 6, either 4 DPNs or one long circular
Finished measurements:  approximately 9″ tall
Price: $4
