What materials did you use? I used two strands of Plymouth DK yarn (51% cotton and 49% acrylic) for the black, buff, and white. For the red, I used two strands of Berocco Comfort Sock yarn (50% superfine nylon and 50% superfine acrylic).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The instructions are not very clear, especially on the increase. Be sure to go back to the beginning to see what the pattern calls for when it says "knitting increase." Also, I made the beard four times because mine was not looking like the one on the Red Heart site, but I made it exactly according to the pattern and left it that way. I may try and tweak it myself when I make the next one.
