You're all acquainted with Captain Jack Sparrow, the handsome pirate of the Caribbean.
Now, meet Captain Jack Rabbit, handsome, but short, pirate of the Midwest.
Jack is the result of that pile of knitted pieces in my last post and he kept me very busy all weekend.
Captain Jack is a design by Debi Birkin. He's an easy knit, but caution!, he consists of many small pieces. I found one small relatively insignificant error in his instructions and a couple places that weren't as clearly explained as I would have liked, but all in all, he was fun to make.
The finishing took about three times as long as the actual knitting, but the fussy details were important to the final piece. I really enjoyed the beading and I added a parrot, not included in the instructions. Every pirate needs a parrot.
