I've started a blog, and I've finished writing out the Nibbler pattern and posted it over there. Enjoy, and if anyone makes their Nibbler a crochet ham I'd love to see it.Wink http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

Nibbler is my favorite Futurama character. I started working on this over Christmas break, and at last he's done. I did all the crocheting, and my boyfriend stuffed him (my least favorite part of crafting). No pattern, just made him up as I went.

I did the eyeball first and then worked down to the head, all as one piece. Then all the other pieces were crocheted separately and sewn on. The eyes and fangs are made out of felt. (And you know you're too obsessed with details when you find yourself cutting apart wiggly eyes so that the black center on your felt eye will be the exact right size!)

I got it into my head that it would be a good idea to knit the cape, rather than buying fabric. I already had the red wool after all...In the end it took me longer to knit the cape than it did to make Nibbler's entire body. The cape's collar is croceted and then I joined stitches to the base of it, and knit the bottom part.

The white eyeball, yellow booties, and red cape are all made with Bernat Satin that I had left over from other projects. His muzzle and stomach patch are made from Bernat Super Value wool in "natural" and all the black is also Bernat Super Value. Over all, not very expensive to make!

Thanks for looking  Cheesy

Wow, that is impressive! His eyeball stalk is my fave part! I like the knit cape, it adds to the Shocked factor.

Wow!  Again amazing what people can do without a pattern!  You should write your pattern down and sell it.  I bet you could make some decent money on the pattern alone!

This looks so cute and and extremely well-made. I love Nibbler, too, and this really does him justice.
