Avatar Crochet : Momo

Hello!

I am back with another pattern. This was made as a gift for a friend of mine who I hope will find this to be a great surprise. As I was making it, I thought it would be nice tonote down the pattern and post it here.

Apologies, some of the photos are quite yellow as they were taken at night and the last photo I got of him isn't the best as it was taken with a lot of junk in the background but it's the best finished photo I have of him. The first few photos he also has wonky eyes coz I kind of rushed it. But I fixed that up for the later photos...as I couldn't stand it.

This makes a plush from DK weight yarn that is 35 cm (just under 14 inch) tall and the tail is 35cm (13 and a half inches) long. With the weigh his legs and feet are made and with the tail for support, Momo can stand by himself.

Apologies if I got anything wrong, I personally don't watch Avatar so everything was from pictures!

Here we go with the pattern:

Eye backs
make two
with black
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: SS to make the ring nice and circular.
Don't pull the starting ring closed so that it is easier to pull the eye through.

Attach the black rings to the eyes and then secure to the face piece. Pull the loose tails through to make it neat. This way there's no need to sew the black rings to the face piece.

Centre round 1 of the face piece over the nose bump on the head and sew on.

Sew the ears onto the head.

Leave a long tail to sew to the body. Stuff firmly and sew to the body.

The neck piece will look a little skinny but that's okay. There will be a brown layer over the top shortly which will thicken that up.

Row 2: SCx2, chain and turn (2)

Round 15: [2SC, SC]x6 (18)
Round 16 - 21: SCx18 (18, 6 rounds) = 12345
Leave a long tail to sew the leg to the body.

Sew the toes to the foot and use the tail from the toes to tack down the front of the foot. This ensures the foot stays flat rather than puffed up.

Stuff the leg firmly and then sew to the body on an angle.






The following are for all the brown markings on the body. Some of the pieces may be a bit too big or small for your plush depending on how firm you stuffed it. You may need to adjust some stitches.

Leave a long tail and sew one onto each side of the body. The top part of the piece will overlap the back piece slightly to create one joined look.

The pins show where the side pieces were sewn onto. 




Tail
Start with brown
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: 2SCx6 (12)
Round 3 - 6: SCx12 (12, 4 rounds) change to white

Round 14 - 15: SCx12 (12, 3 rounds) change to brown
Round 16 - xx: SCx12  Keep crocheting until you have the length of tail you want. It may help to stuff as you go. Then sew the tail onto the end of the back brown patch.



Hands - Side 1
1 white, 1 brown
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: [2SC, SC]x3 (9)

Hands - Side 2
1 white, 1 brown
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)

Round 3: [Chx3, SCx2 (down the chain starting from the second loop from the hook), SC]x3, SCx5, Chx4, SCx3 (down the chain), SS.

For each of the brown pieces, leave a long tail. Finish off with the white. Match the corresponding pieces together (white to brown) and sew the hands together so the right side is facing outwards. Keep the long tail as this will then be used to sew the hand pieces to the arms later.

This is the picture of the piece after I made it.


This is the piece after I sewed the thumb into position.





I make the whole arm with brown because it was easier than trying to make it two tone. Once the wings are sewn onto the arms it will give the two tone effect.
