Frodo and Sam in Crochet

My sister, the crafty one, packed a box full of oohs and ahs for Zaya and Mim this Christmas.
She adapted her patterns from last years Star Wars set, used sculpey clay for making swords, staffs, pots, pans, silverware, salt box, and  lembas. There were even a couple of elven leaves, bedrolls, elven rope, and bags for carrying them all.

This one is Sam, heavily laden for the journey.

And here is Frodo with his staff and, of course, little ring on a chain around his neck.

They camped for a rest in the perilous den of large humans, surrounded by odd snorts and guffaws. Occasionally a mysterious flash interrupted their uneasy dreams, and when they awoke, they found that someone had been pawing through all their supplies. Fortunately, however, the intruders had no interest in stealing anything, only sorting and arranging. Odd.

Here's a close up, showing the ring.
If you look closely, you can see fine metal-work on Frodo's lapel.

 With the bright sunlight in his face, Sam stares, a little stunned, realizing that he must pack quickly and turn his face toward the dark region of Mordor.
