Pluto is a dog from the planet Pluto. His favorite color is blue. He is a very friendly alien, and wants to meet as many children as he can. He loves to play and give hugs. He also enjoys flying, he using his ears as wings.
Pluto's body is knit in one piece on double-pointed needles. Legs, tails, and ears are done
separately. All pieces are knit in the round.
Gauge is not really important, you do need a tight fabric though. The best way to do this,
is to go down about 2 needles sizes from the needles recommended for your yarn.
