Thanks so much for all the faves everyone~ ;w; <3 I'm so glad you all love him~

:evillaugh:

And here's my surprise I mentioned last night on my facebook fan page. XD

It took me around an hour or two to make this little guy. XD He's definitely the smallest thing I've ever crocheted in my life so far. :3

It was my personal little challenge to see if I could make insanely small amigurumi, and I'm quite pleased, though taking its picture was tough to do with a camera that just wouldn't cooperate. (It doesn't even have a macro shot option.)

He's sitting on the pad of my left index finger, and I included a picture of what he looked like from the back. :3

I hope you guys enjoy it~ :D
I won't be making too many micro amigurumi, but I may again in the future if I want a challenge. XD



Update
Oops, I forgot to mention that I split crochet thread in two and used a 0.75mm hook. :3

~Altearithe

This little guy is exactly 5mm tall minus his spout. X3

Or a charm bracelet.  At least with crochet it wouldn't snag your clothes and hurt if you lean on it.

I actually stated what size hook I used in the artist's comment box right under the picture. XD
But I'll retype it for you: I used a 0.75mm hook.
