Sometimes there are people in your life who really deserve an award, so why not crochet one for them? This classic figure with a sword is perfect to show someone how special they are. You could also alter it as you wish, the pattern includes details on how to make a laurel wreath instead of a sword, or you could make anything you want for the figure to hold - maybe even a crochet hook and a ball of yarn!

The pattern is suitable for crocheters with a little experience. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi. They are written in English using US crochet terms, and the list of abbreviations includes the UK alternatives.
