Challenging my self is something that I have come to expect when creating anything for some one else other than my self. Being a perfectionist is one thing but crocheting something I wasn't sure I'd be able to with out a pattern was another. That's pretty much what happened when I set forth to create a werewolf amigurumi for a swap. World of Warcraft swap to be exact, and the lovely Averia's son was my target. Anyone who has agreed to swap with someone and craft for a young child knows that it can be a little daunting. Undecided How do you impress or makes something for a child that they'll be happy with?

He plays a Worgen hunter in game and I thought this deserves a great amigurumi replica. I searched for patterns online, found some but nothing with the detail I wanted to convey, so I started from scratch. My labor of love was rewarded when I asked for opinions on an online community where I felt the scrutiny could be brutally honest, reddit.com. A blogger by the name of Harper happened to see it and featured it on a gaming blog dedicated to World of Warcraft! (In my world of geek-dom that was a big deal to me!) Shocked I feel so proud to share him with you.

His arms and legs are pose-able, with pipe cleaners in each limb. I am most proud of his tiny fingers.


I hand sewed his clothes and even gave him felt undies.


Here he is in parts, ready to come to life.


Here's a link to the small article on WowInsider.

Thank you. I used a tutorial I found on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGXbIgRLBz8
I just tried to do only 3 fingers and a thumb instead of 4 and a thumb.
