Thinking on a Thursday

So it's been another week already. The weeks are kind of just flying quickly around now aren't they? It's like the older we get, the faster time seems to move. There are so many things to do and my list just seems to get longer day by day...well my crochet list. Everyday I think of something new that I want to make. I add it to the bottom of my list and hopefully I'll get there one day.

Then my list often gets reshuffled as different types of inspiration hit me.

I also add to my queue other designs that I purchase to support other crocheters in the community. This little robot is a freshstitches.com design.

So where do I get my inspiration from?

Well, it's quite obvious that I'm a very fandom oriented crochet designer. I rarely come up with corchet patterns of my own which is why I'll probably never release a book of my own because I don't think I'm really that great at coming up with original ideas. Although, one day I might be able to? Maybe a cute little book of animals or some sort.

Right now though, I love making things that I see. My first and foremost goal is always that I want to release one crochet pattern for every single pokemon. I know this is probably impossible considering they'll keep adding new regions and generations but it's a goal that I really want to try. I also don't want to release chibi versions. I want to make all of them as close to the original as possible. Now this ...is probably kind of impossible because whenever I make things they turn out cute.

The legs are a little shorter than they should be, and some of the proportions turn slightly different but I guess that's just a style factor of mine. But I want to try to be true, as much as I can, to the original designs. I will also want to make chibi versions of a lot of things but I do want to create one true to the original pokedex design of each pokemon.

The pokemon I have made the most of....umbreons. I've made five..or was it six..of them to date? Each of them have gone to their own home. But I'm going to be making more! At least one more so I can note down the pattern and release that one.

I also get inspiration from the people around me. Everyone feeds me ideas of cute things. That's how Merengue came to be, because one of my friends knows that "pink" and "food" are two things that will inspire me to create. And if it's cute, there's a big chance that "Mei will make". I have a really big admiration for people like Twinkiechan who are able to design such cute things and make so many people happy.

I wish I could be more like that~!

Anyway, it's been a while since I released a pattern! And tomorrow is another Friday! :)

My goal for this week is to be more inspired by the things around me and see if I can create something cute on my own!

Clefairy (Pokedoll style)

Hello! I come with another pattern that isn't being added to the pokedex library as this one is done in pokedoll (cute and round) style rather than based on the original dex image. But this one is really quick and easy to work up! I made this with DK weight yarn and my usual 4.00 size hook. The plush works up to be 18cm (7 inches) tall and 21cm (about 8 1/2 inches) arm span! Body Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11: [2SC, SCx9]x6 (66) Round 12: [2SC, SCx10]x6 (72) Round 13 - 26: SCx72 (72, 14 rounds) Round 27: [SC2tog, SCx10]x6 (66) Round 28: [SC2tog, SCx9]x6 (60) Round 29: [SC2tog, SCx8]x6 (54) Round 30: [SC2tog, SCx7]x6 (48) Round 31: [SC2tog, SCx6]x6 (42) Ro

#778 Mimikyu

Hello all!! I've been mysteriously quiet lately but I've been very productive. Just lazy when it comes to actually resizing my images and putting these patterns up. I have a backlog of actual patterns to put up so I'll work through them slowly. I figure I would come back with one that a lot of people have been happy with. This Mimikyu is 30.5cm (12 inches) tall from base to the tip of its crooked ear. Features are needlefelted on and everything is sewn on and attached so there are no hard parts.  Head/Body Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11 - 20: SCx60 (60, 10 rounds) Round 21: [SC2tog, SCx8]x6 (54) Round 22: [SC2tog, SCx7]x6 (48) Round 23: [SC2tog, SCx6]x6 (42)  

#725 Litten

Hey all! Sorry for being slow! I have had quite a few patterns that I've been sitting on while I worked on new projects so I'm slowly going to post them all over the following weeks starting with this black fire cat! Litten length nose to tail end: 30.5cm (12 inches) and height going from tip of the ear down to feet: 26cm (10 inches) tall. Made from DK weight yarn and a little bit of felting materials for the eyes. Or you can just felt down yarn or even just embroider on the eyes. I also used the felting tools to flatten down the forehead markings and the eyes. Head Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11 - 16: Scx60 (60, 6 rounds) Round 17 - 18: SCx10, change to red/orange
