I came across this video by Diana Sullivan, one of the foremost authorities on machine knitting in my opinion. I really like her instructional videos on youtube. This particular video is easy to follow. http://youtu.be/VCe8zDb3apw .
And here are some pictures of the one I made. It took me twice as long to put it together than to knit it up. But it is a fun little creature just in time for Easter. Hurry up and make one for your easter basket!
