I fell in love with this pattern the minute I saw it and knew that the boyer just had to have one. The pattern is from the newest Knitty and was really fun to knit. I wanted to make it colorful so I decided on lime green for the body and a striping yarn in blue, green, yellow, orange, red, and turquoise for the socks so they would each be different. It is so cute! My first knitted stuffed animal.
