FO : Sack Boy (Little Big Planet)

Project Details
Pattern:
Sack Boy, from Playstation 3's Little Big Planet. Pattern by Alan Dart, in Simply Knitting (available online)


Yarn: Patons Jet, in a brown colour. 1.5 skeins. And black stash yarn used for making the eyes and the mouth.
Needles: 5.5MM needles


Comments and Mods:
Very easy to follow pattern by Alan Dart, and if you follow the pattern, you're pretty much guaranteed the results. The only changes I made was to use yarn for the eyes instead of shank buttons as the shank buttons I bought were too small for the massive head that sackboy had, and I pretty much winged the construction of it rather than follow the instructions. Besides that, easy, fun, quick pattern with great results. My bf loves it :D

It does look fantastic. I buy Simply Knitting every month so it will be exciting to see the pattern.

I'm working on a Sackboy too but it's a different pattern. All I have is his head now. What size zipper do you use? That's my real obstacle. I need to find a zipper before I can continue making him.
