Hard to say how long exactly. I know for sure I started the project 6 days ago, but basically it was a 30-minute lunch project with probably 6 or 7 hours fiddling at home. I contemplated my methods though and stopped to ponder a lot doing everything from picking up the stitches to what kind of neckwear to use. LOL There's a lot of seaming and end weaving which seemed to go on forever! Straight forward construction though... maybe 7 hours. I figure 3.5 hours of straight knitting then maybe double that for seaming, weaving, stuffing and decorating.
