#334 Altaria

Hey all!

I am back with another pattern. It's been so long, I know! I have actually been quite productive but been making plush and writing up patterns but then not coming around to post them! I have a few to post but don't have as much time as I used to in regards to taking a lot of photos and editing them. But I have the instructions here that I'll get up! And a few photos of the finished plush.

If anybody has any queries in regards to specific steps, let me know in the comments or send me an email and I'd be happy to answer questions. :)

So first we have altaria! I forgot to note down sizing before I posted her off but she's about the same size as my other pokemon such as the eeveelutions.

Yarn - 8 ply/DK
Hook Size - 4.00
The wings are brushed yarn so if you look my growlithe tutorial on this blog it's the same process.

Body
blue
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 - 26: SCx30 (36, 20 rounds)
Round 27[SC2tog, SCx4]x6 (30)
Round 28: [SC2tog, SCx3]x6 (24)
Round 29: [SC2tog, SCx2]x6 (18) 
Stuff but not too firmly.
Round 30: [SC2tog, SC]x6 (12)
Round 31: SC2togx6 (6)
Sew closed and flatten slightly for the body shape.

Head/Neck
blue
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 - 9: SCx24 (24, 5 rounds)
Round 10: [SC2tog, SCx2]x6 (18)
Round 11: [SC2tog, SCx4]x3 (15)
Round 12 - 20: SCx15 (15, 9 rounds)
Stuff firmly and sew onto the body.

Body Cloud
Around the sides - white
Chx11
Row 1: from the 2nd chain from the hook, SCx10 chain and turn
Row 2: LSx10 chain and turn
Row 3: SCx10
Then keep repeating row 2 and 3 until there is enough to wrap around the body. Sew onto the body.

Base
white
Chx6
Row 1: from the 2nd chain from the hook, SCx5 chain and turn
Row 2: LSx5 chain and turn
Row 3: SCx5
Then keep repeating row 2 and 3 until the piece is long enough to cover the base of the body. Sew onto the body

Then cut through all the loops. Brush out the yarn so it’s fluffy and keep the leftover fluff as this can be used to add extra volume.

Wings
white
Make 2
Chainx11
Round 1: From the 2nd chain from the hook, SCx9, SCx3, (then continue around the other side using the leftover loops), SCx9, 3SC (24)
Round 2: LSx24 (24)
Round 3: (2SC, LSx3)x6 (30)
Round 4 - 18: :Sx30 (30, 15 rounds)

Make sure all the loops are on the outside (if they’re not already). Stuff lightly so that it’s still a flat wing and sew onto the body by parting the fluff on the body. Cut all the loops and brush out. Use a needlefelting tool to tuck the ends in to create the cloud effect.

Tail
Chainx21
Row 1: From the 2nd chain from the hook SCx20, chain and turn
Row 2: Chainx16
Row 3: from the 2nd chain from the hoo, SCx15, chain and turn
Rows: 4 - 7: Repeat 2 - 3 twice more to get the 3 middle tail pieces
Rows 8 - 9: Repeat rows 1 - 2

Turn slightly and crochet along the edge where all the tail pieces are connected together

Row 1: SCx10. 2 stitches per tail piece. Chain and turn (I then crocheted the initial tail into the next row to avoid needing to weave it in later.
Row 2: SC2togx5 (5)

I then pinned down the tail onto my felting block, and heated the piece up for about a minute with a hair dryer on high to make it curl less and sewed onto the body.

Head Tails
Chainx31
Row 1: From 2nd chain from the hook, SCx30
Row 2: Chainx 31
Row 3: From the 2nd chain from the hook, SCx30
Turn slightly and crochet along the edge where the tail pieces meet.
Row 1: SCx4 Chain and turn
Row 2: SC2togx2 (2)
I pinned down the two pieces and heated up with a hair dryer like with the tail and then sewed onto the head.

#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)  

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! 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: [2SC, SCx9]x6 (66) Round 12: [2SC, SCx10]x6 (72) Round 13 - 26: SCx72 (72, 14 rounds) Round 27: [SC2tog, SCx10]x6 (66) Round 28: [SC2tog, SCx9]x6 (60) Round 29: [SC2tog, SCx8]x6 (54) Round 30: [SC2tog, SCx7]x6 (48) Round 31: [SC2tog, SCx6]x6 (42) Ro

#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. Head 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 - 16: Scx60 (60, 6 rounds) Round 17 - 18: SCx10, change to red/orange
