Okay, never having seen Howl's Moving Castle, I don't know who Calcifer is...but it doesn't matter because he is sooooo adorable! If you do post the pattern- I'm making one and he can sit on my desk at school (until a student steals him! Shocked )

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

I love Howl's Moving Castle!  And Calcifer ROCKS!  (I actually mananged to draw a decent pic of him one - I was so proud of myself!)  That is sooo awesome though - I got some copper fun fur on sale at JoAnns, so I think I'll make a couple as graduation presents for my friends in Anime Club at my school who are seniors.

First, as the recipient of a fantastic Calcifer (from your pattern) in the Amigurumi Swap last summer, THANK YOU for posting this! Secondly, I'm adding it to the Craftster Pattern Archive, if you don't mind. Smiley

Thanks for this pattern!  So while looking for Christmas stuff on Google I stumbled on Craftster and caught a glimpse of that sweet bear you have for an avatar I searched around for the pattern and found you had it for sale at etsy, only problem, I knit, and have no idea how to crochet, so I thought I could find a way to convert the pattern. I know I'm not so good at such things, so the best I could do was learn to crochet, so I could have that bear. I have a niece who's a few months old I would like to give it to on her first birthday.  So I taught my self how to crochet, and  made three scarves for my kids three days before Christmas.  The first one is a riot. It starts out fat, gets skinny, then fattish, and finally skinny again. By the time I made the last one there were no mistakes and it was square.  Then I started a another amigurmi that proved to difficult, so I thought I would try this guy.  Normally I hate working with fun fur it makes the stitches to hard to see, but I gave it a go.  I think he turned out pretty cute.  Some how my shape is off and the hair comes much lower, but I'll forgive myself.  Oh I didn't have orange, but I did have purple on hand so he's just a fun little critter.  I'm gifting it in a care package to a friends baby.

I guess I'm too new to post a picture so here's a link if you care to see.
