Well ok, there's not really any need to run just yet. This little guy is still a small sapling and doesn't even have real teeth yet. So he'll just look really adorable as he tries to chew on your arm.
Hannibal is also quite a friendly little guy, despite the ferocious reputation of this particular species of man-eating plant. He'll do very well on ham-and-cheese sandwiches, with the occasional fly thrown in for extra protein - just look at his chubby stem.
I must say, knitting little Hannibal was the most fun I've had for a long time! I was giggling like a madwoman the whole time, imagining having a man-eating plant as a pet. Yeah, I'm a bit weird like that. I got the idea from a stylized logo hubby made some time back, although he ended up looking very little like the logo.
Hannibal is made with both knitting and crochet from a soft acrylic yarn, and he's a whole 23 cm (9 inches) tall. He's already been listed in my Etsy shop, so you can take a look there for more photos. I'll also have a pattern available soon!
