So I've fallen in love with all the amigurumi dolls on the website, and wanted to try one for myself. Problem, I've never crocheted before. Solution, beg my mom to teach me. Here is the product of my madness and some tinkering with a generic pattern.
It is only a product of a day, and it is sorta lumpy, so it could be better. I call him my misfit toy (and my humming the misfit song from Rudolph the whole time I made him), hence the mismatched eyes and no feet. Do you guys think it would look better with feet? I just wasn't sure. But yes comments and criticism much loved, since I am a complete newbie at this. O and does anyone have any hints on making those darn beginning loops, like how to make them easier to pull closed?

Here he is!

WOW. Looks WAAAAY better than my first ami project! I think you did a great job.
If you need any good resources, I always suggest YouTube. They have some really great videos to show you all kinds of tips and techniques. Smiley

Always up for a personal swap!

wow, the first thing I crocheted was really small! Well done. It's cute! I say no legs, that way when you become a world expert crocheter he won't run away and hide if you sit him next to...lets say an ami true to life giraffe or something =)
I also suggest the you tube tutorials.
