I’m going to cut to the chase: Link was difficult. I spent a week looking at patterns on the internet and found an adorable Japanese pattern, it was a tiny chibi lookin’ Link. I could not understand that pattern at all – was so relieved when I remembered the Golden Jelly Bean. Her Link Sackboy is well written out, except I had to come undone, and start over on each part. Basically make him twice, because I kept messing him up. When I had him almost done, I showed my boyfriend who thought it looked awesome. He came back later to tell me it reminded him of Toon Link.
I found the pattern for Toon Link while trying to find shield and sword patterns.
I am so happy with how he turned out – I will post down below the modifications I did to his arms, the shield pattern, and his triangle hair pieces. I kept him for over 3 weeks, tweaking him out and admiring him. My husband made chain mail, a grappling hook, and a bow for him. The shield and sword both go on his arms. I also promised a video :
~ so here it is. I can’t promise I’ll have one of these videos all the time, but I do plan on doing one every time I make an amigurumi project. Please visit my shop: Heart of the Healer
