About a month ago, Boyfriend and Flatmate decided it was time to revisit the Rambo films. I have to say, they don’t make especially good knitting radio, since the soundtrack is more explosions, gunfire and screaming than actual dialogue, but they did give me an idea for a new Beastie. I am proud to introduce… Rambo Beastie!
He’s a little less smiley than some of my other creations, but he’s had a pretty rough time of it these last few years.
However, I did my best to cheer him up with some authentic Rambo accessories – combat trousers with a real leather belt, red bandana and an awesome 80s hairdo!
Oh yes, and he has a replica of the knife from the first film – lovingly recreated in lethally sharp… felt. Ahem.
I was hoping he’d stick around for a while, but it wasn’t long before he escaped back into the woods on another one-Beastie campaign…
More new Beasties coming soon!

OMG! He’s so Rambo! Awesome hair 😉
Heehee! Thank you! Letting my Beasties grow hair has definitely been a great development, it’s so much fun to make and style.
Love the hair do 🙂
Thanks! I’ve been having a lot of fun with Beastie hairdressing lately… Wool is just so much more satisfying to play with than the mess on top of my own head!
Tell me about it….how can I ever control my life when I can’t control my hair LOL
Oh this guy is soooo great! Love the camo…and the knife…and the hair…he’s so cute. 🙂
Cheers! He was fun to make… And I love having the chance to revisit all these older Beasties! Thank you! 😀
I think I’m going to have to check out some more of these. They are just so fun! I love all the different designs!
