Hi,
I just learned how to knit before Christmas (making socks as Christmas presents) and when I was done with that I figured I wanted to teach myself how to crochet too...
I started making a Monty Python style bunny and it was going pretty well, but then I saw this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370219.0 here on craftster and got inspired...

My friends birthday is this week and she's mentioned to me before that she wants a Spike doll (from Buffy)... so I decided to put my other project aside for now and make her one!

Just like Anne11 I used a pattern from Crafty is cool http://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftyisCool (the Jimmy Kimmel one) and made a few changes to it...

So here is my first finished crochet project, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!
Thanks for looking!

/Sara

Holy camolie! This is your first completed crochet project! It just makes my head swim thinking of all the increases and decreases you need to do to make this guy! Even got his cheekbones and eyebrows in there! You did an excellent job capturing Spike's likeness ^_^ Great job!

Great work, especially on the face/cheekbones and his hair. I'm digging the coat, too!
