Jack Skellington Doll
I saw this link

http://verasunshyne.blogspot.com/200...ellington.html

earlier this week and thought "How cool!!!" Jack Skellington is one of my all time favorite characters and with Halloween and Christmas coming up it seems like the perfect little guy to have hanging around the house. Plus a realy cutie as a gift for any fan.

Would anyone like to join me on making him?

count me in! I think I'll secretly knit this for my daughter (if it turns out well maybe I'll make a few for her friends too!)

Cool Beans!!! I'm gonna make a couple, too. My one year old nephew should get a kick out of it. And my buddy Skinner who hid with me in the shadows of the goth kids, too shy to be seen, is gonna get one too !!!

Gonna start on my little army tomorrow !!!!!

I got the body and the head knitted up and now I am on the i-cord for the arms and legs. I am really stumped on how many stitches to cast on to make the i-cord. I am just doing it in red heart. I tried 4 and that looks too skinny. Any suggestions ? The pattern doesn't say.

hrmm... i would have done 4 too. I would try several, i-cords go quick enough to try several different ones.

I have decided that I was probably just doing the I-cord wrong. I haven't done one in a while. I only have one pair of double pointed needles (quit gasping lol I have a hard time knitting on them because of my fingers not bending as well as regular peoples lol) and the are size 6. So, for the arms I co 3 and for the legs I co 5. I thought maybe the legs should be just a tad more meater. I went out to Wally World this morning and got a piece of felt. I was so happy with the price. It was only 24 cents. I thought it would be more of a rip off lol. I have never bought it before. As of right now I am working on the 2nd leg i-cord. I should have that done soon (I'm getting bored with making all the i-cords. Not that exciting like the body and head were ). Then I will be off to sewing my little man together. I think I might lightly mark the face on with a pen and then sew over it. I'm not the best seamstress when it comes to sewing faces. The only thing I really ever sew are boy scout badges. Well, I'm off to add some more inches to my other leg !!!

I'm in! I bought the yarn last week. DD the movie, she is going to go nuts over the doll. I'm going to lay him on her pillow while she's sleeping when I finish him.
