Archie believes life is too short to just measure marigolds, he definitely stops and admires them from time to time. The examples were made with various worsted weight (8 or 10 ply) wool yarns using US size 3/3.25mm needles, but almost any yarn could be used with the corresponding needle size. Archie Inchworm measures approximately 7 inches long & 7 inches tall (to the top of the arch). But of course size will change depending on choice of yarn & needle. The body is worked in one piece in the round, and the eyeballs and legs can be knit on picked up stitches, or made separately and sewn on. Lots of short rows are used to make Archie's arch, so it's the ideal project for perfecting those wraps. This is an intermediate/advanced pattern with plenty of instructional photos & helpful links, & cheezombie is available for help via email as always.
