Not long ago I found a little amigurumi on Ravelry which I knew my husband would like, he liked it so much be bought me the book "Creepy Cute Crochet".
While I was playing around he found out there was a Viking pattern on the designers website and asked if I could make one as a leaving gift to a co-worker. So off I went, it took me two attempts to get one that I liked, but he is cute! He is about 3 inches tall :)
He doesn't have a sword in this picture as it was added later, but he turned out OK :) As for my earlier attempt that didn't work so well? Well it turns out my daughter loves her new "snowman" and loves throwing him around the room :)
