Crochet your own Orko or Claptrap for free!

Yarn craft for all!

One of the many things I love about Ravelry is that they have a treasure trove of amigurumi patterns, many of which are free. Two of the more recent uploads to the site are Emjay Bailey's Claptrap from Borderlands series and Jersey Ali's Orko from Masters of the Universe. Aren't they great? 

Both of these patterns are crochet. Emjay Bailey's Claptrap, which can also be found at Nerdigurumi, seems to be the more complicated of the two, requiring a greater variety of stitches to be in the crafter's repertoire. Don't let that frighten you off, though. None of them are terribly hard. Jersey Ali's Orko is pretty straightforward. Crocheted from the top-down with the body and head worked in the round as a single piece, the pattern seems to mainly make use of single crochet stitches (with a few half-double ones in there, too) along with the basic decreases and chains. 

Are there any crafty types out there thinking about making one or both of these plushes?
