Cheese the Chao

This little guy is an amigurumi that I designed myself. He's based on the Sonic the Hedgehog character Cheese.

Why Cheese? Well, he was the only Sonic character I had all the colors for...




Notes: By "repeat", I mean "repeat last row". All pieces except for the wings and tie are worked in rounds-- only turn the wings. Each line of text gives instructions for one full round, assume that the instructions are intended to be repeated until round is done. 

Materials:

Hook (appropriate to yarn size chosen)

Yarn in light blue, sunny yellow, soft pink and bright red (picture doesn't do all of the colors justice)

Tie 

Wrap red yarn around three of your fingers 5 times, then tie it tightly in the middle.

Wrap more yarn around the middle to make it thicker, adding a length of blue yarn to attach it to Cheese 

 To assemble

Weave in all unneeded lengths of yarn, then assemble as shown in the pictures. I did the face for mine by sewing buttons to the head then embroidering the mouth with floss.

Enjoy your newest little friend! ^_^
