I've posted him in the completed projects and i don't think I'll win but i am very proud of him since he was the very first thing i ever made without a pattern and so i thought why not make him the first challenge entry I've ever done as well? I think he just qualifies as Amigurumi since he's an animal, but he doesn't...."consist of oversized spherical heads on cylindrical bodies with undersized extremities" ....to quote wiki.

Oh well. here he is....



His name is Olaf and he's from Norway but he now resides in Nottingham, England with my friend. And she loves him very much.

Gratuitous close up....



Hope i haven't broke any rules by re-posting him, but I'm sure I'll find out if I have.



His fin can sit up straight as well.

thanks for looking x

This is great! The fins, tail and spots give it such a realistic look! But it is so sad that his fin is flopped over...free Olaf!   Wink
