What are you most proud of? Bob is way bigger than Ferdie was which was made per pattern instructions. Since I didn't have a thicker weight yarn (and didn't want to double up the yarn) to make a bigger bird I just increased more to the desired size and then increased the number of regular rows (rows which no increase was made) then decreased the same number in which I increased. Plus decided to give this bird some hair and button eyes (since I live in the middle of no where and couldn't get stuffed animal eyes) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just play with the increases and have fun with it.
