For the Amigurumi Poppet swap, my partner requested a Hobbes in exchange for one of her infamous poppets. I googled to find this:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330848.0

I was inspired to make this little guy.  I altered the pattern the previous poster supplied quite a bit.  It was great for a guide, but didn't quite give the outcome I was looking for.

If anyone is interested in the changed I made, I'd be glad to help you out.   Grin  I didn't write the pattern out, but I can tell you what I did to modify him.

Aw, he looks just like the toy version of Hobbes (how everyone but Calvin saw him)!  I'm feeling so nostalgic now... he's wonderful.

What RavingRosemary said---just looking at him makes me want to dig up my Calvin & Hobbes books and curl up for a while.  He's amazing, and I love how poseable he is, too.
