This is my first ever image post on a forum.  Yay!  In honor of that, I decided to post my first ever amigurumi.
So, I used the Amigurumi Dude pattern on crochetme.com and Frankie was born.  Here's his pic:



Hope ya like him.  My husband is an industrial designer and illustrator, so he's great with color and design and helped me pick out Frankie's eyes.  I'm not nearly as good with color, so he comes to my LYS with me sometimes.
Thanks for lookin'.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Thanks!  I'm glad you like him.  They aren't exactly pompoms.  I made about 4 inches of chain stitches, and then just made sort of an oblong shaped ball at then end of the chain stitches and then stuffed and closed it.  It's been a couple months, but I think I used a variation on the pattern for the arms and just made it shorter.  Then I repeated that for the other side and then attached them to his head.  All told, Frankie took me about 4 hours spread over about 3 days.  So it really is a quick fun pattern.
