Well, I was unhappy with Milhouse's hair. So I made another piece. Could you tell me if it got worse or better? Here's he:

(haha now I noticed that he looks like a criminal in this pictures  Grin)

End of update!

Hello!  Smiley There's a lot of characters from Simpsons I could make. Why do I made Milhouse? Ok, here is the story. My boyfriend kinda looks like Milhouse, so, his friends ask me if I could do one to gift him. And, well, I tried Tongue
I don't like so much of how his hair came out, but... I don't know how to make better. I have to be better on this thing of amigurumi's hair! Undecided Anyway, here is him:

It was my second amigurumi designed by myself.
And I made a pattern for him, this is my first "arranged" pattern, so, if you don't understand or find something wrong, let me know.

You will need:

Soft Violet yarn (But I dont had that, then I used a kind of mud pink)
Red yarn
Yellow yarn
Small amount of red and white felt and a little more of dark blue felt.
Small amount of black embroidery yarn for the mouth
Yarn needle
Fiberfill for stuffing
I used a 3mm hook and he have 5.9 inches(15cm) tall

Sc = single crochet
Inc = increase
Dec = decrease (I recommend invisible decrease)
Bpsc = Back post crochet or back post single crochet (I only use this for make the shoes)

Head/Upper body (Work this in joined rounds)
Start with yellow yarn

RND 1: 6 sc into a magic ring (6)
RND 2: inc in each sc (12)
RND 3: 3 sc, inc around (15)
RND 4: 2 sc, inc around (20)
RND 5: sc in back loops only around (20)
RND 6: sc in back loops only around (20)
RND 7: 2 sc, 1 Dec around (15)
RND 8: sc around (15)
RND 9: 3sc, 1 Dec around (12)
RND 10: sc around (12)

Begin stuffing the head. Change the color to soft violet.

RND 11: sc in front loops only around (12)
RND 12: sc, inc around (18)
RND 13: sc around (18)
RND 14: sc around (18)
RND 15: sc, inc around (27)
RND 16: sc around (27)
Finish off

Nose (I guess I work it in spiral)
With yellow yarn

RND 1: 3sc into a magic ring (3)
RND 2: inc in each sc (6)
RND 3: sc around(6)
RND 4: dec around (3)
Finish off, leave long tail for sewing in.

Legs / bottom of the body (Work this in joined rounds)

You gonna make 2 legs and then join then to keep doing the bottom of the body like it was one single piece, after finish, sc the bottom of body with the upper body with soft violet yarn.

Start with yellow yarn

RND 1: 4 sc into a magic ring (4)
RND 2: sc, inc around (6)
RND 3: sc around (6)
RND 4: sc around (6)

Change to red yarn

RND 5-8: sc around (6)
Finish off, now make the other leg.
Join the legs and work now as it was one piece. IGNORE the join! Work in spiral now.

RND 9: sc around (12)
Begin stuffing here
RND 10: sc, inc around (18)
RND 11:  sc, inc around (27)
RND 12: sc around (27)
RND 13: sc around (27)
Finish off. Join the two pieces (Head/upper body and legs/bottom of the body) with sc and soft violet yarn, starting from the center/back of the upper body and bottom of body. As show the picture below.

Remember to finish of stuffing before you close.

Shoe (make two) (Work this in joined rounds)
With red yarn

RND 1: 6 sc into a magic ring (6)
RND 2: 2 sc, 3sc in next stitch, inc, 2 sc. (9)
RND 3: sc bpsc around (9)
RND 4: sc around (9)
RND 5: sc around (9)
Finish off, leave long tail for sew to the foot.

Arm (make two) (Work this in joined rounds)
With yellow yarn

RND 1: 6 sc into a magic ring (6)
RND 2: sc, inc (9)
RND 3: sc around (9)
RND 4: sc, 1 dec around (6)
RND 5-7: sc around (6)
Change color to soft violet

RND 8: sc, inc (9)
RND 9: sc around (9)
RND 10: sc around (9)
RND 11: Turn, sc 4
Finish off, leave long tail for sewing in.

Ear (make two)
With yellow yarn

RND 1: 3sc into a magic ring.
Finish off.
Arrange in half-circle shape and attach to side of head.

Glasses (with felt)

After sew the ears and nose to the head, I cut a red felt in glasses shape and two little circles of white felt.
I think the picture below can be helpful
(I dont use this exactly form, but I hope it helps you to make your felt glasses for Milhouse)
I glue the white circles on the red circles and I used fabric paint to do two dots on center of the glasses.
For the eyebrowns I cut two rectangular pieces of blue felt and glue above the glasses.
Here is a close of his face (click to see big):


Ok, I had never made amigurumi hair of felt, but I found it would be weird if it was with yarn or something like that. Also Im not so good of making hairs So I tried to made Milhouse's hair with felt! I dont know how to explain, but I took pictures of how I made, maybe it can help. But feel free to make anyway you think better.

Thanks for looking  Wink
