#134 Vaporeon

Hey guys!

Back again with another little plush for you guys because I'm on a little small motivational roll. Again, I'm just making a quick post with the instructions. If anything is unclear or if you find any mistakes, drop me an email or a comment and I'll be happy to help!

Eyes are needlefelted on and I embroidered the nose and mouth with black yarn. I went with an ease of creating the collar part this time, it's floppy and completely centered. I may redesign vaporeon in future to have a collar that is higher around the head and shorter around the chin so that it looks more balanced. :)

Head Fin (top)
Yellow
Start by leaving a long tail, then Chainx14 (You can start by not leaving the long tail but I leave a long tail at the start of this fin because I don’t like weaving in short tails at the end)

Round 2 - xx: SCx6
Continue crocheting in the round until there is a long blue tube which is long enough to be sewn to the front of the fin and leave a tail. Use the long tail from the tip of the fin to sew to tube. Finish off that yellow. Then use the blue tail to sew the tube part to the head and the remaining yellow tail (the original starting tail of the fin) to sew the remainder of the fin to the head.

    1. Hi! It's always best to use the hook size that beat fits the yarn you get to crochet a nice piece that doesn't have too many gaps and can be nicely stuffed. In my sample I used DK weight yarn and the best hook for me is the 4.0

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!

#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.
