Make Your Own Little Big Planet Sackboy

Make Your Own Little Big Planet Sackboy!

Little Big Planet had to be one of my most anticipated game releases this year. So while I was waiting around for it to hit the shelves, I would peruse the Media Molecule blog (the guys and gals who brought us the game) to see if I could find any cool news or interesting screenshots.

Although there were plenty of news bits, the single most amazing post on their blog had to be the homemade Sackboy lovingly knitted by a MM employee's mom.

Since then, I've been kind of obsessed with either figuring out a way to make my very own, or hoping that someone else would do the hard work for me so I can just buy one. Fortunately, I've found a bit of a compromise in the knitting pattern printed in issue 49 of the UK's Simply Knitting Magazine.

According to Kotaku, the pattern will also be printed in several other magazines that are sold all over the world. Although I can't claim to be a knitter, I'm heading to the closest bookstore now to get my hands on this pattern!
