After finally managing to teach myself the very basics of crochet, including circles and tubes (which believe me were the bane of my life until I got them right!), I have taken on my first proper amigurumi patter - this polar bear.
Here is where I'm at so far:
Looks like a fish, not a polar bear!! That is supposed to be his head and the start of his body.
Here's hoping it starts to look more bear-like as I continue!
