Now this isn't the cartoon Mega man, this is the 8-bit video game Mega man. I wanted to make that clear. He's just that short, stocky, funny looking guy in the video game. From pictures, it appears his blaster changes to whatever arm is convenient, but most pictures put it on the left arm, so that is where mine is.
This is my first time making up a crochet pattern, and like with most things, I can't just start with something simple, I have to try to jump into something crazy. This Mega man started out quite awesome looking in my mind, deteriorated to a mutant Mega man in the middle of it's creation and came out looking acceptable in the end.
This is the outcome of weeks (when I had time) of work involving many moments of almost giving up and throwing him across the room, and an oddly still numb tip of my right ring finger (the feeling is starting to come back, I think it is from the pressure I put on the finger while crocheting, since I crochet very tightly).
I hope you enjoy this Instructable. He was, in the end, very fun to make and I enjoy seeing him on my desk at Instructables!
