This is so cute!! I don't knit but my mum does, so the Kid printed out the instructions for her.
Gran duly came up with the goods Happy

One problem : near the end of the body instructions, where it says "dec 1 at each end of next and every foll RS row to 25 sts " we assumed it should be INCREASE, not decrease.

The instructions don't actually knit up exactly like the picture but he was close enough. Happy

Bianca--being from yarn just depresses him more. It's in the movie. He says "Oh, wonderful" just before the Earth guy thr-- I mean, yarns up.
