What's another quick project that I finished last year? Little Big Planet Sackboys for my boys!here.
I started knitting the doll at the base of the neck. Once I was at the level of the eyes, it was time to start the mouth. I basically treated the mouth area like an afterthought heel. I evenly put the mouth stitches on the circular needle before cutting the stitches between. I knit the mouth in black, and then decreased the sides of the mouth exactly like
the toe section of a top-down sock. To finish, I grafted the leftover
stitches together. (I added the KAM snap buttons before deceasing for the head after knitting the head for a few more rows.)
I'm not crazy about how the mouth panned out, so sackboy #2 was a big improvement, in my opinion:
Even he has a heart!
