What advice would you give someone starting this project? Very fun, I added a little tail.

Awesome job! I love it! I have a question though. On the bears other people are doing, the snout looks too big to me and messes up the overall proportion. Yours, however, is just perfect and is exactly what I want mine to look like for my little neice/nephew on the way. Did you deviate from the pattern for the snout section? I'm not the best at figuring out how to make changes as I'm a knitter and this is the first crochet or amigurumi project I've ever done. Thankfully Stacy is a good teacher ;O).

nope I didn't change the pattern, I only added the tail. I'm a tight crocher (not too tight) so that may be why his snout looks smaller..maybe if you follow the pattern but go down a hook size for the snout the proprtions will look better for you. I think I did one decrease round at the ends of the arms and legs too, to make them more flexible when sewn to the body ....

sorry I forgot to say thank you for your kind comment..., and I mispelled crocheter..lol..I also liked putting his eyes closer together I thought it was cuter....

thanks! I will try the smaller hook size. Also, I did notice, and really like, your eye placement. So cute!

or did you make the head bigger instead?
