Woobie Progress
Here is a photo of my Woobie so far. Thanks to all of you who provided suggestions. I am wondering if standard wrap-and-turns might work for the short rows used to shape the head? I never figured out exactly how to close the holes using the method in the pattern. The pattern doesn't have you wrap before turning. Instead, you turn and then slip a stitch. There is a note to pick up one leg from the stitch below and knit it with the next stitch on the needle. The stitch after the slipped stitch? I had to do some fiddling in order to close the holes.

I don't remember how I did mine. There is a Ravelry group called Knifty Red Designs Group. Go to the discussion page and type in wrap and turn. I know this question or similar was asked.

That's going to be adorable. I love the color combination.
You might try the German short row method, which I learned from this forum, for doing the short rows. It seems so much easier to me and much less likely to leave holes.

Thank you! I'll take a look at it. I haven't heard of the German method.
