....or Crochet-na if you prefer! For those of you not familiar with English football (i.e soccer) Eric Cantona is a famous footballer! This was a request from my friend Tim, it was meant to be a birthday present but he ended up having it early as a kinda moving-in-to-a-new-house present instead.



I'm pretty pleased with how he came out, the hair wasn't quite right and in the end I wished I'd just changed to brown wool half-way around the head. The way I did it, it ended up taking 3 hours! But hey-ho you live and learn.



here is the back view. I used the Amigurumi Dude pattern for this one, I think if I use this pattern again I'll alter it slightly to make the head a little smaller, as I get that over-sized heads are meant to make it look more doll-like and cute but this one is just a bit too gigantic for my liking!

Thanks  Cheesy

I dunno, a big head really sort of fits for footballers somehow Wink. It's a great gift.
