I FINALLY MADE HIM!!!! I'm so incredibly happy that "Bowser" is checked off my list
! I stumbled on this amazing pattern (http://nanettecrochet.blogspot.com/2011/08/super-mario-bowser.html
) a little less than a year ago, but there was always something that made me too busy to make him. Anyways summer came and after six days of crocheting, sewing, and many "small" breaks, Bowser was finally finished
: (Oh and sorry about the many pictures....I just couldn't stop taking them
I did make some small modifications:
-On the arms I crocheted only until round 19 and then crocheted through both layers.
-I didn't crochet the spikes. Instead I made them out of felt and hot glued them on.
-I did crochet a collar though:
Rnd 1. Sc 6 in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2. Inc around (12)
Rnd 3. *Sc in next sc, Inc* around (18)
Rnd 4. *Sc in next 2 sc, Inc* around (24)
Rnds 5-6. Sc around
Rnd 7. *Sc in next 2 sc, Dec* around (18)
Rnd 8. *Sc in next sc, Dec* around (12)
Rnd 9. Dec around (6) Don't Stuff F/O
I'm SUPER incredibly happy on how this turned out and so is Bowser. Look he's going to say something:
..............Which translates to "Bye!"
