I loved this book when I was growing up, and when I found this matted, furry, blue yarn at the dollar store, I knew just what to make with it! 

It was really hard to crochet with, so he's small.  He's loosely based off of a pattern in the amigurumi collection 3 book, for the head, anyway. The arms and legs are pipe cleaners wrapped in the blue yarn, so he's poseable!







Hope you like him!

This was also one of my favorite books, and you did a great job recreating Grover.

Aww, that is soo cute.  I loved Sesame Street as a little kid and its amazing how much of an impression it can make on you as you grow up.  Tho i've never crafted a muppett, say this is giving me ideas.
