my little UFO Amigurumi (that's unidentified finished object)


i started this cute little thing yesterday. he was originally going to be a replica of "hoops" from hoopsandyoyo.com (if you haven't seen it, check it out, they're so awesome). but then i stopped and looked at him and i thought he looked cute just like that! i just don't know what he is.
anyway, here's the pattern. maybe someone else can use their imagination. =)
i used sugar n cream cotton yarn in hot pink with an F (4.00mm) hook.

Thanks for sharing this great pattern. :) I only recently started to crochet (pretty much for the sole purpose of learning to make amigurumi)... I have pictures on my livejournal of my finished object. I'm now trying to figure out what else I can do with your pattern!
