#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)

Row 1: SCx10 chain and turn
Row 2: SCx9 chain and turn
Row 25: SCx9, slip the hook into the next stitch round 25 and continue crocheting to the end of the round, SCx20 (30)
Stuff the head lightly and then continue crocheting next round. In round 26, crochet the next stich and then pick up the first stitch on the next step up. This creates the little head tilt.

Triangle flaps

Round 4 - 5: SCx9 (9, 2 rounds)
Round 6: [2SC, SCx2]x3 (12)
Round 7 - 8: SCx12 (12, 2 rounds)
Flatten and sew the yellow triangles to the leftover loops. I also sew the front of the triangle to the next round up for support and sew the triangles to each other to make the fit look nicer. Then sew the black triangles in between the yellow ones.



Black Tail Shadow
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: 2SCx6 (12)
Round 3 - 11: SCx12 (12, 9 rounds) =12345678
Sew underneath the back yellow triangle.

Tail
Chain 16
Round 1: From the 2nd chain from the hook, SCx14, 3SC, (turn the piece around and crochet using the leftover hooks on the other side), Scx14, 3SC (34)
Round 2 - 7: SCx34 (34, 6 rounds)
Stuff and sew closed. Leave a tail.

Chainx12
Round 1: From the 2nd chain from the hook, SCx10, 3SC, (turn the piece around and crochet using the leftover hooks on the other side), SCx10, 3SC (26)
Round 2 - 5: SCx26 (26, 4 rounds)
Stuff and sew closed. Leave a tail.

Chainx8
Round 1: From the 2nd chain from the hook, SCx6, 3SC, (turn the piece around and crochet using the leftover hooks on the other side), SCx6, 3SC (18)
Round 2 - 5: SCx18 (18, 4 rounds)  
Stuff and sew closed. Leave a tail.

Sew the three pieces together to form the zig zag shape tail and then sew onto the tip of the back yellow piece as well as the black shadow underneath. If you like, can also sew a stitch joining the tail onto the back of the mimikyu to hold the tail up. The stuffed tail that I make does stand up on its own without needing the extra stitch.
