So my friend's birthday was the other day and his favorite super hero is Captain America. Being a crafty gal, naturally I decided to crochet him a Captain America. I've only used patterns before when it came to making amigurumi dolls so this was a bit of a challenge. To make him I made changes to an already existing pattern in Ana Paula Rimoli's Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute crochet. And being a non-comic-book person I used my friend and a Marvel Versus Capcom art book to get the look right.





Sorry for the blurs I can hardly ever hold the camera still.

He is about 9 inches tall. His shield can be removed and be worn on his back or arm. To stiffen the shield and make the wings on his head I crocheted around wire and pipe cleaners. Overall I'm pleased with how he turned out and couldn't wait to give him away. My friend loves him and I've already gotten offers to make more.

Comments, questions and criticisms are welcomed. Thanks for looking.

Happy crafting.  Smiley

He is just adorable - he made me smile.

Just a suggestion - if you join the last stitch of each round to the first stitch with a slip stitch, then chain one to start the next round, your circles will look smoother and not jag at the end.
