Cody the Count Reviewed by Theresa Albania on 2011-01-12 *****
Great Pattern! I make him to go with Wanda the Witch, and make various versions of him.
Since I've also used the Wanda pattern as an elf (red/ green yarns) , and a princess(pink/ purple yarns) I changed up this little guy to match. Just eliminated the fangs, and made in colors suitable to the wanda versions, cuz what princess doesn't need a handsome prince ? lol! grandbabies love them all! :)
