A great gift idea for teaches! What a cute idea! The pudgy pencil is knit first. Then the pencil line as if you were drawing a line, is added to end of pencil. This is the pencil line that lays in the pages to mark your page! You will always find where you are with this, and it makes a cute, novel gift idea too! Make some for the school children, and one to give to each of the teachers. It works up very fast, so you can make lots in no time! Uses sport weight yarns, knitting needles, US# 4. Finished size is about 4 inches long, not including pencil line.
