I'm currently trying to work on some patterns of all sorts of fantasy races and creatures, and I've started with Halflings. Halfing is a fairly generic name for small (half-sized) humanoid creatures from various books, films and games which have their origins in folklore. Stories from many cultures feature the 'little people', such as hobs and brownies, who keep themselves hidden from humans but sometimes help with chores or play tricks on them.



I've made male and female Halflings - the male ones all have curly hair and two of them are wearing waistcoats. One has a jacket (see top photo) and the other has a hooded cloak. I made one with just a shirt and he has a little hat and scarf to wear.

   

 

One of the female Halflings is wearing a bodice and skirt, and has a hooded cloak as well. The other is in steampunk-inspired gear - I imagine she's an engineer or adventurer - with spiky purple hair and goggles.





I hope you like them, please let me know what you think!

Lovely. The feet are particularly good. Tolkein would recognise them immediately.

I've seen a few people who crochet that I'm mostly a fan too, I mean I like all crochet work, but there are a couple people that I'm really impressed with their crochet work. You are are one of them. I love your work! 

And your haflings are great! I love the feet. They totally look like hobbits. Great job!  Grin

Thanks for the lovely comments! I'm glad people like the feet - they're large enough that they can stand up unaided.
