This is Gromit! I made him for the Friends of Craftster Swap. (He was a thank you gift for my partner, so that's why he's wearing a thank you banner.) He's my first real amigurumi and I had a TON of fun making him. The hardest part was finding good buttons to use for the eyes. (They're just white buttons with the pupils drawn on in Sharpie.)



Although I wish I had written the pattern, it is not my own. He's from a pattern that was posted on Crochetville.org. Unfortunately, the pattern has been removed from the site, so I don't even know the name of the person to give credit for the pattern. So, despite not knowing who the person is, I'd like to give credit where it is due to the (now) anonymous person who posted the pattern.

The only real change I made (besides some general shaping issues) was to add some floral wire to his ears to make them poseable. It was really fun to do that because then you can make him look surprised. (Like in this picture!)

That is so freaking awesome!!  What a bummer that the pattern isn't available anymore.  I wonder if a commercial crochet pattern for Wallace and Gromit has ever been available?  Anyone in the U.K. know?

Amazing work!  I love it!!!  The wire in the ears is the perfect touch.

I love how you made his ears so that you could change their position. That's one of my favorite things about Gromit- he has such expressive ears! Now...I think it's time for a bit of Gorgonzola...

Crackin' Gromit.  I had bookmarked that pattern with hopes to eventually make it for my 2 year old who is obsessed with gromit...now I wish I had printed it.  Yours looks great and I sooooo know what you mean about the eyes I found the supplies for everything except them.
