So, with The Hobbit coming out, several guys in our foam fighting group playing dwarves (scrawny, bare-faced dwarves), and all the awesome knits of dwarven helms, somebody had to know it was going to happen.
I had a lot of fun making this but honestly? The absolute best part was how thrilled he was get it. He looks gruff here because he’s posing but he had a huge grin on any other time. Plus he kept stroking the beard and giggling. Reactions like that are the best part of knitting for friends. He’s even wearing the hat portion around town.
Lynn posed for me the night before to make sure I got some good up close shots of the beard.
Pattern: Mismash of a few different patterns.
