He is made with medium weight (4) yarn and US 3 (3.25mm) DPNs, which makes him approx. 13” tall when complete, but any weight yarn and correlating DPN size could be used. Just be sure to use the same size yarn for all parts of the doll so the clothing will fit correctly. He is knitted mostly in the round, head and limbs are sewn to the body. He has a basic construction that makes him easy and fun to make. The pattern is 13 pages long and includes photos and links to tutorials to assist you.
