A friend of mine loaned me a Humpty Dumpty to see if I could make more just by looking at it. But I didn’t know how to do the arms and legs until now. Thanks so much for the pattern.
So cute! My dear, little mother tells me when I was very young I called him 'Dumpty Egg'! I like your Dumpty Egg!
Many years ago someone gave my new baby a humpty dumpty made of fabric and it was one of his favorite toys. I think this would make many a baby happy, especially with the happy face !
Bright and cute! And clever.
Aww, he is so cute!!:) Thanks for sharing!!

Just a little something from Judy says
Truly, this is the sweetest, most handsome, and well dressed Humpty Dumpty that I have ever laid eyes on! Even with those well documented instructions though, I will let you do the crocheting and I will be happy to do the admiring. Never mind the bit of jealousy that I feel in my heart:)
Adorable! I love the illustration in your childhood book too.
