You may want to start stuffing...
PU stitches all around the rim where the YELLOW is, this is the edge where we casted on. Pick these stitches up in GREEN.
Note: I am beginning to start a fresh count of rounds, beginning with "Round 1".
Round 1-5: Knit all stitches
Change to pink yarn.
Round 1-13: Knit all stitches
Round 14: k2tog all stitches. PLEASE NOTE: You may have to adjust your stitch's positions on your needles.
Round 15: k2tog all stitches. PLEASE NOTE: You may have to adjust stitch's positions on your needles.
Thread yarn through the remaining loops on your needles and fasten off.
Finishing: Finish stuffing and weave in ends. Add black felt onto the light brown tip of your pencil amigurumi. It doesn't have to be perfect, I will show you pics 1 post up.
Give this to someone special: teacher, friend, anybody who would appreciate a gigantic, plush, squeezable ticonderoga pencil!
