While Aimee was here, we combined two different stocking patterns to come up with this little guy. He's about 10 inches tall and 4 inches wide.
If you've never made a sock or are skeptical of double pointed needles, I recommend trying a stocking first. You can get a similar version of this one in Knit Christmas Stockings!: 19 Patterns for Stockings and Ornaments. It only took a couple hours, interrupted by talking and TV, to make it too. Try it, I dare you. :)
