I hardly ever make anything for myself, but I've been wanting to make myself a little Frodo for ages, so a couple of months ago I finally did. I love The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and the Hobbits are my favourite characters. I might get round to making all of them, but for now I've just done Frodo. He's based more on the book character than the film one, though I did give him blue eyes like Elijah Wood. Actually, I think I set his eyes a bit too far apart, but never mind, I still love him. His cloak is removable and the hood fits over his head. I didn't make his feet hairy, I tried but it just didn't look right, but they are big enough for him to stand on his own.







After making Frodo I needed to make something for one of my nephews for Christmas. He's into Romans, so I thought I'd make him a cute little amigurumi one using the Frodo pattern as a base. As I'm a Doctor Who fan, I decided he would be Rory the Roman. He has a removable helmet which I'm especially pleased with, but it does mean he needs a bit more help standing up. Maybe I should have made a Pandorica for him to lean against?







I hope you like my little guys as much as I do!

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Rory!! Frodo!!!! Oh my gosh I'm in love. You have some of the cutest amigurumi designs I've ever seen. Will you be adding the patterns for these to your Etsy? How tall are they? Also I would sell my soul for a Harry Potter pattern. Just sayin'...or my baby. He's totally cute.

I love the Frodo! The Roman soldier looks awesome, too, but Frodo holds a special place in my heart which no Roman soldier can hope to claim :3

Thank you guys, I really appreciate all your lovely comments! As you can probably tell, Frodo and Rory were made from essentially the same pattern, so I think I shall try working out a few variations to make different characters then write it up.

Thank you! It's fun making the 'accessories' too, the cloak and the helmet. I should probably make Frodo a Sam though!

Oh Sam would be great! You could make him a tiny pint of beer or pot to make stew in.

Yes! Or a frying pan, or maybe just a backpack.

 Frodo's cloak is wonderful and that soldier's helmet is really great.

Oh I love them both, but of course especially Frodo!  If you get this pattern in your shop, I'll be first in line!

I looked on your etsy page and I didn't see the Frodo.  I would love to make one for my daughter.  Her birthday is coming up and she has requested a Hobbit birthday party!

I have just recently finished another hobbit, I'm also working on an elf and a dwarf. Christmas slowed me down a bit, but I will be working on the patterns.
