Amigurumi,  Crochet

Amigurumi Baymax

download

My New Year blog post catch up continues. I’m now working through all the part written posts. 

I started this last August, it’s only been on hold because I hadn’t embroidered the eyes. That’s been rectified today so I can get it marked off.

Sometimes I volunteer to do things without really knowing if I can.  “Sure I can make a Baymax” being a case in point.

On the plus side his shape is perfect for amigurumi.

As he’s a Disney character I’m making him as a gift only and would state that this pattern is for not for commercial use.

I had the majority of a 100g ball of DK cotton – make unknown and will be working with a 3mm crochet hook.
