Ahoy me hearties!!! They says that X marks the spot, but don't be clickin' that X on this treasure of a pattern. You'd have to be right landlubber not to knit this for your scurvy little dog, savvy?
This quality set of garments is knitted in the King Cole Merino Blend DK, but if wool ain't your flaggon of grog, then me and me hearties here at The Great Ship Knit Nottingham recommend the King Cole Cherish DK, which has a shipload o' colours 'n' is made out of lovely soft acrylic, too.
Knitted on 3.75mm, and 4mm straight needles, but if you've only got a hook for a hand, maybe crochet is for you.
