Aha - me hearties! Captain Bluebeard is the scourge of the high seas, searching for knitted plunder!
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the pirate doll, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns.

The beard is made by knitting loops; instructions are included in the pattern, and a photo tutorial is also available from http://fluffandfuzz.weebly.com/tutorials1/how-to-knit-loops
FINISHED SIZE: Captain Bluebeard is approximately 20cm tall (including the hat).
