There's a new game out, called Super Meat Boy. The hero and main character of the game is a cube of meat who has to save his girlfriend (who is made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar...

For a friend for Christmas, I made an amigurumi super meat boy using two different patterns, one for domo kun and one for a plush ninja, and a lot of creativity....

I give you, SUPER MEAT BOY!!!

This is my first amigurumi actually....I bought a cheapo 4.00 mm plastic hook and while on the last leg (literally), the hook snapped....I ended up crocheting with THIS little piece of hook

This is my first amigurumi ever so any comments are GREATLY appreciated

This is really cute, you got his expression perfect haha! I've been considering making a super meat boy tshirt but this is so cute i might give it a try instead :0)

I broke my 4mm plastic hook on a project once too.  I super glued it back together and then reinforced it with tape!  I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I continued to use that hook for a couple of months before buying a new one - and I haven't thrown out the broken one...just in case.

Oh hes too cute!

As for hooks, I've broken multiple plastic hooks... mine usually snap off at the tip so I can't fix them. My advice is spend the $2 (or however much they care) for a metal hook, especially for the smallest ones. I don't keep any plastic hooks smaller than 8mm...

he's such a cutie. Cheesy I made one too. But he's more beat up.

I'm definitely investing in a better hook, all of my others are metal BUT this one of course...I was checking out wooden ones but I feel like those would snap just as easily

That little piece of hook will be perfect for a keychain crochet hook to be kept handy for weaving in ends on knitting projects. People usually make them from the aluminum hooks, but since yours is already broken, just drill a hole in the end and put on a key ring.

Teesha Moore inspired patches--anyone want to swap?

I've never heard of that game (though it sounds awesome), but I think I'm still allowed to tell you that little feller is super cute. Good work!

I kind of combined two different patterns

This one --> http://nerdigurumi.com/2010/11/small-domo-kun-amigurumi-crochet-doll.html

which I used for the head/body and arms (just bigger)


This one --> http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=4

which I used for the feetsies...I used a 4.00mm hook and wool ease yarn...I can't remember the color. Good luck!
