Like all my reading Character bookmarks, his head hangs out of the book for ease of finding the reader's place. His arms with his ax can go inside the book or hang outide as well.
He is now available on my Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/listing/100338124/crochet-bookmark-tin-woodman-of-oz
This is a fairly simple pattern to make although the silver metallic thread usually isn't in stores until Christmas time. I usually stock up when the metallic threads come out because I really like them. I know that they can be found on line right now. A gray or silver thread without the metallic fiber added would work also.
The pattern uses the usual stitches such as sc, hdc, dc, etc. (these are U.S. abbreviations) and some front and back posts work. It also has picture tutorials on areas that might seem confusing without pictures.
I think fathers often are characterized as having no heart because they don't use the words "I love you" as often as mother's, but their actions tell it all. At least this was the case of my own father and yet I know how much he loves me by all the ways he is ready to help if I need it.
Happy Father's Day to all the "Tin Woodsman" out there.
