Superman amigurumi free pattern

Hi, have you got your Christmas crocheting in order? I have come up with a free amigurumi pattern, that is sure to make the superhero fans in your family happy this Christmas. I am going to gift mine to the superman in my life, my husband.

My husband has been asking for it for a long time. I always thought making a superman might be a tricky project, I was wrong. I came up with this easy-to-follow pattern.

It takes two to three days to finish, even if you crochet only for a few hours a day.

Note: The body and legs of this superman amigurumi are crocheted in one piece, joined in the course of crocheting. The entire project is worked in continuous rounds using a stitch marker. If I have used a colon (:) in between the rounds it means you have single crochet for those rounds without any increase or decrease.
