This little measures approx. 11 inches/28 cm tall, to the tip of his hat. The pattern uses oddments of white, red, peach, black and orange dk yarn (I use acrylic), some polyester stuffing, 2.75mm straight knitting needles and a darning needle. His oversized suit is knit from side to side to facilitate the vertical stripes. It is knit in 4 pieces (plus the sleeves) so putting it together requires a little patience, but its not difficult.
