Free Pattern Friday: Forest Spirit Amigurumi

Welcome to this week's Free Pattern Friday! Today's pattern is a 9" tall forest spirit. The pattern is available on Ravelry or you can find it written below. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at icrochetthings@gmail.com.

So I recently watched The Legend of Korra for the first time and this was one of my favorite characters in the show, even if he was only onscreen for a minute. All of the spirits were pretty cute but I liked this guy the best.

The pattern itself isn't too bad, though the body is a bit complicated. The feet to the head are all worked in one piece as I was practicing making different shapes, so that could be a bit troublesome. The pattern for the leaves looks wordy but it's simple once you get going. Happy crocheting and TGIF!
