I'm not sure if this really qualifies as an amigurumi since it's so large but that's what I am calling it.

In one of the Ongoing Wish Swaps, I chose to make someone a large amigurumi thinking it would be easy to find patterns.  Well, I quickly learned that was not true.  In my mind, an amigurumi should be made totally of single crochet and most large animals I found, weren't.  So when I saw this swan and realized it was totally single crochet, that's the pattern I chose.

It's a little different that the original since I could not get the whole mouth section to look proper according to the pattern.  So, I modified the pattern to what I thought looked best.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

Very cute, and if you changed the colors you could make it into a Canadain goose!  (ok, my Dad is a hunter so we are all lets make Dad some geese or ducks kinda stuff in my family)

Oh sure, burst my bubble   Embarrassed

I've had a gazillion 'stuffed animals' in my life and not one of them has been made of crochet, so I say it's an amigurumi  Grin

VERY nice. And I say that you can call it whatever you like -- after all, we're not in Japan (where the style originated).
And thank you for providing the link -- somehow that's a pattern I'd missed (I'm obsessed with obtaining animal patterns).
