Amigurumi Despicable Me Minion

Minions are so popular right now! I decided to give it a try and crochet one myself! I am really happy with the result, although a lot of trial and error occurred as I really wanted the proportions to be exact! Searching the web I found out that there are many like a gazillion versions of minion faces but the main proportion characters are two! A taller and a shorter one! I went for the taller version! As said details come in a variety but for now I decided to make a one goggle version and a happy one!:)

    1. Hi Lorna! Actaully it's basic crochet stitches! So the crocheting would not be an issue! It just has a lot of sewing involved; to get all the parts together!:) Good luck though!
