Fortnightly Freebies has Returned!

Hello everyone!

Sorry it has been so long since I've completed a fortnightly freebie. I went to Japan and came back and now I have had a little rest and worked on some things.

I have finished a pokemon pinch purse and a sailormoon doll. I'm so proud of them!



They're both going to be in my stall at the next convention and maybe my online stall depending on whether or not I have any stock left. I'm trying not to have too many things in my online stall otherwise I might have nothing left for the upcoming convention!

So today I come to you with the pudding pattern that I promised before I left for Japan! I had posted pictures of the pudding but never ended up getting the pattern completed. THEN when I came back from Japan I found that my photos didn't make it on my camera so I made the pudding again, changed the plate design slightly and now I can finally have the pattern on my blog.

Pudding 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. SCx30 front loop only. (30)
Round 7. SCx30 but with this stitch, crochet through both loops and the loop that you didn’t crochet in round 6. This will give a nice edge. (30)
Round 8. [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36)
Round 9 - 10. SCx36 (36, 2 rounds)
Round 11. [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42)
Round 12 - 14. SCx42 (42, 3 rounds)
Leave a long tail.
Attach eyes. I attached mine into round 9 and about 7 stitches apart




White plate
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. SCx48  only in the front loop (48)
Round 10. SCx48 but with this stitch, crochet through both loops and the loop that you didn’t crochet in the pudding. This will give a nice edge.
Round 11. [SC2tog, SCx6]x6  FLO(42)
Round 12. SCx42 but with this stitch, crochet through both loops and the loop that you didn’t crochet in like round 10. (42)





Sew the edge down so it’s more plate like and flat.
Use the yellow tail to sew the pudding onto the plate and lightly stuff. You can stuff more if you want it to be cute and chubby but it will make the plate slightly domed.

For a clean attach, I used only the front loop of the pudding to sew onto the plate.

If you like a quicker and less annoying “plate”, you can stop at round 9 and then in round 10, just SCx48 and then weave in the end.

The plate on the left is if you complete all the instructions..the one on the right is the easier plate.


Caramel
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. SCx30 front loop only. (30)
Round 7. SCx30 but with this stitch, crochet through both loops and the loop that you didn’t crochet in the pudding. This will give a nice edge. (30)
Round 8. [Skip a stitch, 5DC, Skip a stitch, SC]x7, SC (43)
Leave a long tail.
To keep the design, I sewed it on using the back loop of every second stitch.

Cream
Chainx45
From the 3rd stitch from the hook, DCx43
Leave a longer tail than normal. Coil the piece into a cone shape. It looks more cute and cream like if you make it slightly uneven. Then tack the coil together with the long tail so it holds it shape, stuff lightly and sew to the pudding.



After it is all sewn together, don’t forget to embroider or felt the little smiley mouth on!




In the last picture on the right, you can see I've attached a hairpin to the pudding. This is so it can be worn as a cute little novelty ....hat? Head accessory :)
