This is my first ever attempt at amigurumi, or any crochet item that isn't a big long rectangle of single crochet stitches. He's very imperfect, but after several failed attempts I think he looks so cute. I used ournew
's tutorial for Kerochan here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=169562.0
. I made some pretty obvious changes.
He's for a friend of mine who is away at basic training for the reserves. Everyone here misses her a lot, and we won't get to see her until Christmas. Of coarse, I can't wait until Christmas to give him to her, so after I take a few more pictures of him with a few of her friends I'm shipping him and the pictures off to her so she can enjoy him now (and to know everyone back home loves her). We named him ZB, mostly because we have little imagination.
Enough chit-chat! On with the pictures!
