Adventure Time - Jake Rattle

A quick freebie pattern from me today. Have just finished a big crochet project involving three life sized cats and have made this little pattern up to celebrate.

One of my friends has recently had a little baby and she loves this show so why not a little project to combine her two loves?

I made Jake out of DK weight yarn. He is 20cm (almost 8 inches) tall and the rattle bit is soft, only stuffed with no wiring.

To make him, I used:
DK Yarn - yellow, white, black
G/6 – 4.0mm crochet hook
Stuffing


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 - 24: SCx36 (36, 18 rounds)
Stuff a small amount to keep the rattle off the side of the plush, insert the rattle piece and then stuff a little more. Then continue.
Round 25: [SC2tog, SCx4]x6 (30)
Round 26: [SC2tog, SCx3]x6 (24)
Stuff firmly.
Round 27: [SC2tog, SCx2]x6 (18)
Round 28: [SC2tog, SC]x6 (12)
Round 29: SC2togx6 (6)
Sew closed and finish off.

Ears
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: 2SCx6 (12)
Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18)
Round 4 - 7: SCx18 (18, 4 rounds)
Leave a long tail, flatten and then sew onto the side of the head.

Outside eyes
make 2
black
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: 2SCx6 (12)
Leave a long tail and sew to the head.

Inside eyes
make 2
white
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: [2SC, SC]x3 (9)
Leave a long tail and sew to the black eye portions on the head.

Mouth Base
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: 2SCx6 (12)
Sew the mouth base onto the head between the eyes. For the bottom half of the circle, only sew down the back loop, leaving the top loop unstitched will provide a little more dimension for the mouth.

Nose
Round 1: CH2, SCx3 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (3)
Sew to the middle of the mouth base.

Jowls
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2 - 11: SCx6 (6, 10 rounds)
Sew the tube closed and leave a long tail. Sew onto the head above the nose and loop it around into an n shape.

Rattle Ring
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: 2SCx6 (12)
Round 3 - xx: SCx12 (12, xx rounds)
It might be easier if you stuff as you go for a firm ring. For the rattle ring, crochet as many rounds as you want to make the ring as big as you want. Then sew each end of the long sausage onto where the legs would have joined the body to finish the rattle.

And you're done!
