So here, have a look at the little guys I've been making!
These little guys are all on ravelry, here, here, here and here.
And for those who want to make their own, here's the pattern. Any questions or comments (because I'm not entirely sure I explained the assembling & shaping parts clearly enough), don't hesitate to let me know. :-)
Download the pattern from scribd.com here, or click on the following pictures for a readable view.
NOTE: I didn't specify a number of stitches to be cast on for the icords because it depends on the size of your yarn and of your project. I usually cast on 3 or 4 stitches myself.
