This is something I've been meaning to do -- and I did it!  I crocheted Cheese-kun (チーズくん) as a gigantic amigurumi!  He is smaller than 'life-size' (as compared to the huggable plush that C.C. has), but he is good huggable size for me!  For those who don't know, Cheese-kun is a mascot for Pizza Hut in Japan, and has been seen numerous times in the anime, Code Geass - as a prize that C.C. has won from eating a lot of pizza.  ^o^  My amigurumi plush Cheese-kun measures approximately 15" tall, and 9" wide.

Screen-caps from the anime:

(This is project #38 of 50 crafty projects in 2007.)

I also am sharing the crochet pattern for free!  It can be downloaded here:

For those who make one - I would love to see your finished projects!

I have never heard of that, but it is adorable!  I may try my hand at making it. 

What is the 50 crafty projects in 2007 thing all about?

Will swap anything crocheted for a Poppet!

How cute!  The more I learn about Japanese culture, the more I love it.

That is so cute! I so looooove Cheese-kun.  I wish we had little cuties like that for the franchises in this country. oh well, at least I have the Japanese ones to gush over.  Wink  Thank you for sharing the pattern, I am going to buy the yarn today so I can get it started.  Grin

I would love to do a personal swap with you. PM me.

MrsGraves - It's a project we've been working on at the Glitter forums - we're challenging ourselves to create and finish 50 crafty projects this year, but some people have set other # goals (for example, 25 or 30, and I'm not sure if anyone has set a goal higher than 50).

lilbandade - awesome!  Please share finished pictures here if you make one!  Smiley

KittyCreates - same!  When I saw this in the anime, I googled to see if it had a name and that's when I found out it was an actual mascot at Pizza Hut... so silly, but too cute!

redfuzzy - yeah, he is adorable!  On one of the Pizza Hut websites, I saw there are other cheesy characters (like a tiny one!).  Please post pictures when you finish making one!

WIPs - thanks! He's not very well known - he seems to be a mascot for Pizza Hut in Japan, but only for kids?  I only see him in the Kids section of their website.  I found out about him from watching the anime series, Code Geass.  (Which, by the way, is now licensed for USA, so perhaps Cheese-kun will gain more popularity now!)

Wow that's really cute. I get movies from Netflix and I was hoping that Code Geass would be on there but sadly it isn't. Thanx for sharing the pattern and I'm like KittyCreates the more I learn about the Japanese culture the more I love it. I want to try japanese candy called Pocky but i can't find it here.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

That is awesome! Pizza Hut supports the rebellion!
Outstanding in my field (mind the carrots!)

I'm always amazed at the Japanese ability to create cuteness out of stuff you wouldn't think would work.  I mean c'mon- cute cheese man?  It's brilliant.  Well done!

Pocky rocks.  If you can find an Asian grocery near you or possibly a World Market store, you should be able to locate some.
