Sometimes there are people in your life who really deserve an award, so why not crochet one for them? This classic figure with a sword is perfect to show someone how special they are. You could also alter it as you wish, the pattern includes details on how to make a laurel wreath instead of a sword, or you could make anything you want for the figure to hold - maybe even a crochet hook and a ball of yarn!
Use double knitting (dk) weight yarn, the amounts listed below are approximate. You can substitute thicker yarn, but the amounts needed may be slightly more and you will need a larger hook.
Gold colour yarn, approx 50g. Black yarn, approx 25g.
