Here is a picture of Ed the Explorer. He is from Laura Long's book, "Knitted Toy Travels":
He took a long time to knit and he is about 18-20 inches. The hair I ended up ripping out and trying again. I found it easier to use a thinner yarn for the hair.. it doesn't puff up as much and looks more natural. I plan on making him a winter coat, hat, and mittens.
