I jumped at the chance to test knit this for Anna of Mochimochi Land when she asked for testers. This little monster will be the perfect gift for my little monster. :-) Even though I had a tight deadline for this project, it really didn't take long to whip this up.Everything is knit in the round and the arms and legs are done in I-cord. No seaming! The arms and legs were a bit fiddly in the beginning because you have to pick up stitches from the already stuffed body. You can also just sew the arms and legs on afterwards, but I like the fact that there is no sewing if you pick up the stitches.And if you are not into all that lovey Valentine's Day stuff, Squoze (the little guy) makes a perfect voodoo doll for jabbing needles into. Um, don't ask me how I know that.
Melody saw me working on it and she was absolutely in love with it. She kept bending over to kiss Hug's head. I can't wait until she sees the completed doll on V-day.
