"Tiki is loads of fun and very colorful!" assures Trock. "But he doesn't bring along silly antics, that's up to you!" With six colours of a standard worsted weight or 10 ply yarn (much less than a skein of each-- you can definitely think leftovers), and some attention to detail, you can delight all huggers and onlookers with this cuddly creature. Trock goes to great trouble to present the instructions in as clear a manner as possible-- 14 pages of easy to read pattern and grids, detailed photographs, and assembly steps. Gauge is unspecified, but you use a 5mm hook.
