Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, naah-naah-naah:



I started this for the 'craft your hero' challenge last year, but only finished it lately.  He didn't turn out that great (the photos are from the most flattering angles!) but I'm posting this one anyway because I'm quite pleased with the idea behind it.

There is a firm, pliant wire running up each leg, through the body and down the arm.  So, while he won't stand up in his own, he is posable.   

For the limbs, I wrapped white cloth around the wire and then crocheted over the top, the head and body is your usual crochet-with-stuffing type arrangement.

Looking flat out:



The details were embroidered on after stuffing.

crumbs DM, you're been turned into knitwork.

This is adorable, I so wish I had one, and a penfold just to round him out would be awesome.

He is great!  I second (third?) the motion for a Penfold. 


And now I can't stop thinking about the logistics of making a nero out of pon-poms...
