Tree Dude is a great toy with a lot of texture.
It is knit in the round, and uses the loop stitch for the foliage. If loop stitch is not for you, I suggest using a yarn with texture, such as fun fur for the foliage.
The pattern works great with any weight yarn, so you can make a whole family of Tree Dudes or a Tree Dude for every season!
Tree Dude - knit in bulky is 10 inches tall
Tree Dude - knit in worsted is 7.5 inches tall
Tree Dude - knit in sport is 5.5 inches tall
Tree Dude - knit in sock is 5 inches tall
Gauge varies depending on the yarn you choose.
Gauge needs to be tight enough that
stuffing does not show through.
