The pattern is very well written and relatively easy to follow for even a beginner crocheter. Simple stitches are used – single crochet, increases and decreases. As with all patterns, I recommend reading over the pattern in its entirety before completing the project. I did stumble on the flopped part of the head and had to frog it once. I used a bright green worsted yarn from my stash (perhaps RedHeart brand – it was missing a label, so I am just grasping here) and a 3.25mm hook (as suggested by the pattern). I used 20mm safety eyes.
As much as I love this guy, he is being shipped off to a friend. Safe travels, Oogie Boogie!
