Here is Pirate Charlie, made for my son's birthday. Got the pattern from the great book, Dream Toys (http://www.amazon.com/Dream-Toys-Collection-Crochet-Fantastical/dp/0312359950/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1206377409&sr=8-2). I made a few basic modifications to the pattern, namely to knit as much of it as I could in the round. I used a latch hook to give him a head full of hair, and modified the hat so it wasn't slouchy, but more fitted. And instead of a triangular shaped scarf for the little rat, I knitted a rectangular one and added a little fringe. The triangular scarf made the rat look like he was wearing a cape, and super-hero wasn't the look I was going for. :teehee: I'm so pleased with how this Scallywag turned out, don't you think his beard stubble is just adorable?
And best of all, I made this little guy completely from stash yarn, mostly Caron simply soft!

Aye! Ye captured the spirit of a pirate, ye did. Is the little 'lubber happy with the results?

Thanks everyone! Yes, my son loves the pirate, it was a surprise for him, so when he opened it he yelled, "Wow, just what I've always wanted!"
Jaxhil, I must be careful not to use words like cute and adorable with him-those are girly words only allowed to be spoken in reference to his sister :). So the pirate has been deemed a "dreaded" pirate-cute just wouldn't cut it!
