An Alan Dart knitting pattern. I do think he's rather splendid, so thinking of making him for Gds. OTOH it's a 12 page pattern! So an awful lot of work if he doesn't like it. Has anyone else had a success with him?
Isn't he magnificent! I do not knit, alas, only crochet, but if I did, I would certainly tackle him. For me the joy is in the crocheting (in my case) not in the finished product. He just looks like a lovely challenge, I would say go for it, grandson is sure to love him - how old is your little boy?
I am sure he will LOVE it. My experience of amigurumi (usually crochet, small animals or cartoon caracter type dolls) is that they are a bit fiddly as you have so many colours and only a little bit of each one, but in terms of the pattern itself, they are usually a doddle as they don't use complicated stitches. I suspect this fellow is probably a similar exercise.
Oh, thank you, Nanabanana! You have 3 lucky grandsons! I've done about 10 pieces out of the 42 (I counted!) so far. Trying to think of a name now - he's going to be Captain Hook's brother, since Gds is enamoured of Peter Pan at the moment. Hardnose Hook? Hatchet Hook? Still deliberating...
