Well, my little chef didn’t make the final cut for the Crochet Me! 2012 Amigurumi Calendar.  While I’m bummed out, I am also grateful to have been able to submit my design.  In an effort to cheer myself up, I’m offering the pattern for this guy as a freebie, just in time for Christmas!  I’m feeling happier already!  Have a wonderful and safe holiday season, and I’ll be back in the New Year with more crochet and crafty ramblings and such.
