Without further ado, I give you: The Lover of Life and Singer of Songs – the crochet version.
I looked around for basic amigurumi doll body patterns to use for him and eventually settled on Beth Webber’s design. She runs By Hook, By Hand and the free PDF for this body can be downloaded here. (Note to self: try making one of her Bleuettes soon!)
The rest of it is all mine, the jacket included, which was a bit of trial and error, but I love the outcome.
For sure – this Freddie came to be a bit quicker than that one, but this little project definitely confirmed my current dislike for amigurumis. At this point, I can’t quite remember how I ever managed to make them pretty much on the assembly line for a while – but that’s a post for another day.
