Bob The Builder

I am so satisfied that i can finish this pattern. It took me a long time to complete this pattern. For some crocheter (include me) it's so difficult to change yarn color several times.
This finished doll is about 29 cm tall if using light weight yarn and 2 mm crochet hook.

Please share your creation from this pattern on my Facebook page Zan Amigurumi or my Instagram
