I am working on some smaller pieces for a friend of mine, various smaller amigurumi pieces that she is going to turn into hair pins and hats and such. One of the ones I'm working on is a little pikachu. I'm not positive on the gauge yarn the one I am using is, but I have been using a F hook (3.75mm) to do so.
So far I have the body done, which was simple:
(this was before stuffing he is nice and rounded now)
Well, I still have to make ears and a tail. The tail I dont think I'll have issues with at all (thought I haven't tried) but the ears are what has made me put this project to the side for about two weeks, but my deadline is coming up and I still have 7 other various pieces to make.
So far I have tried making smaller cones using the same F hook and it just looks like a knotted mess. I tried using a magic circle with 2 SC, another row of SC then an increase to 4SC, 2 in each but it still doesn't look right, then another row and it just...it doesn't look right. I thought maybe it was the gauge of black I was using but when I just tried to make the ears with the same yellow I used to make the body, it still doesn't look right. I cannot figure out how to make it's ears look...not a tangled mess of knots.
HELP! I am so lost and have no idea how to carry on. If you don't know what the ears are suppose to look like, it looks like, here is a slew of pictures: http://www.google.com/search?q=pikachu&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=994&bih=581
