A Little Knit Alien

Happy Birthday, Keith! One of our first date weekends this year was to watch the entire Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray. This little figure that I made for Keith's birthday doesn't have anything to do with Star Wars itself, except that Star Wars is on my brain as I write this post about a little knit Alien.



I knit the Alien with size 5 knitting needles and KnitPicks Wool of the Andes worsted weight yarn in Grass. I stared with 9 grams of yarn, and ended up with just over 1 yard remaining... too little for the scale to register! (To be fair, I did have another ball of Grass in the house so I wasn't worried about running our of yarn.)



The little Alien body looks like a cute little person. You could use this as the base for the creation of a number of different characters.



I used construction paper to make the eyes and glued them onto the Alien. So cute!

    1. It is very clear whose name is better. ;)

      Although I would not have come up with Al Ian if you had not first wanted to name him Al....
