Hello- this is my first post.  I know it's been done- but I made my boyfriend a stuffed Hobbes for Christmas. 



I'm really proud of him!  He was done without a pattern- all freehand crochet.



He's not quite as floppy as the Hobbes in the comic- which was disappointing.  But I feel that it's hard to made crochet toys floppy.



aw.  what a sweet face!



hehe.  peeking in on the boyfriends butt!

Thanks for looking.  I love comments!

Yay, Hobbes. I recognised him from the thumbnail on the front page.  My bf loves Calvin and Hobbes.  This is brilliant!

Wow!  That must have taken you forever to crochet.  It is huge.  Good job on creating your own pattern.
