Chance is in love with Yo Gabba Gabba, so when I saw this I just had to make it. Even though the legs aren’t quite the right length and not quite even (both due to me losing count of rounds) I think it’s pretty darn good, especially considering that it is the first amigurumi I have ever done, and I only really learned to crochet the day before making it.
As it began to take shape, I showed it to Chance and he stared at it with a :O look for a full minute before saying “MUNO!!” So I knew I had made the right choice. I crocheted the eye – after 2 failed attempts to embroider it, one of those being on the wrong side (note, because there are thumbs, you must pick the front before putting on the arms!) – and did a combination of crochet and embroidery to make the mouth and teeth.
