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

There is so much love in this monster.  The original image for this pattern came from a drawing that my husband did.  A doodle, really.  But, as a friend once said, “he is a Norse god of doodling”, meaning his quick drawings are usually much better than us mere mortals can do if we sat down and concentrated all day.  Indeed.  In the years we’ve been married (nearly 8!) we’ve occasionally collaborated on art projects but this just may be my favorite so far.

Short rows create most of the shaping.  The ears and jaw are knit separately and sewn on, but otherwise there is no seaming.

Yarn: sport weight wool or blend of your choice
Yardage: approximately 110yds in cream, plus a bit in gray for embellishments
Gauge: 7sts/ inch in stockinette
Suggested needle size: US size 2, either 4 DPNs or one long circular
Finished measurements:  approximately 7″ tall
Price: $5
