Radish Spirit!! 

Here’s the last Studio Ghibli amigurumi I made. He’s been done for a bit but I’ve been holding onto him, he’s not for the faint of heart. While he’s done using the basic of crochet terms, he can get a bit tricky when it comes to his legs and face.  So, if you go for it and have any questions or issues with his pattern, please ask, I’m here to help.
