I think everybody here knows how important the face of an amigurumi is!

OH GOSH YES.  Roll Eyes I, like you, start with feet... and so I make these adorable little boots... and then body... and arms... and it's just amazing how a face can ruin an entire doll! (Or likewise, how a face can save something ugly.) I keep telling myself I need to crochet dolls head-down so I don't waste time if the head comes out bad, but...

ALSO I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. The halo of your yarn is wonderful, he looks so fuzzy!

Thanks BunnieB!

Maybe we should start with the head....but lucky for me, I've never ruined a doll so far...I just keep on adjusting the face till it's good, or, till I've gone completely mad Tongue and decided the first try wasn't that bad...

A thing that always helps me when the face keeps on looking totally ridiculous is; I just get the doll out of my sight for a little while, and start fresh all over. Then I mostly get it right after a few tries!

And, a small tip, if the face seems a little off, look at it in the mirror, that gives a different perspective, which makes your brain see 'better'.

Made possible by sheep!

He's gorgeous! I don't know the character, but I love all the detail and the yarn you've used for the head is just perfect. I always start with the head and try and get that right first, you're totally right about the expression being one of the most important parts of an amigurumi. I sometimes find if I'm not sure about something I've made, it's just because I've been studying it too much. I leave it sitting around so I get used to it and I find I often like it better than I thought.
