Thank you all so much! I am really proud of myself. This is the first project that I've done that is this size. It's also the first project I've done without a pattern! I hope it does inspire you all!

This is truly wonderful.  Thanks for all the hints.  Can you help with one more?  How do you make those awesome hands?  Are the fingers made separately??  Thanks!

This is the most well-made sackboy I have yet to see on the Internet. You should be very proud, and I bet your boyfriend is super-happy. Great job! As a fellow crocheter and Little Big Planet player, I am inspired.  Grin

That's a good question! The hand and the fingers are crocheted in amigurumi fashion just like the rest of him. It's a completely closed shape. The two ends are the back and palms of his hands. The hands were started from 5 stitches and then increased to the size I thought was proportionate. I then sc around for 3 rows and then decreased to close.

The fingers were all crocheted separately and then sewn on with thread. I believe that they are all 6 stitches around and about 4 or 5 rows long. I left the ends open.

I used a I/9-5.50MM hook and sport weight yarn. I really hope that all makes sense. I'm not very good at this because I've never crocheted anything that people wanted to try to recreate. lol Again, if you have any questions please ask.

how exactly did you do the mouth?  I read that you used a c.d., but how did you make it pop open? (if that makes any sense)
