Amazing! Your dragon is simultaneously beautiful and adorable. Beautidorable?
Did you embroider the details all down the side and on the tummy? It's gorgeous. Glad to hear you won!
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Penguin with Pattern! on: December 14, 2011 05:48:26 PM
So, I totally love penguins. They're so adorable and blorpy. These are some little guys that I made one day after having a major amigurumi craving (does anyone else experience these? I hope it's not just me.  Wink )


If you want this pattern as a pdf, it's here: http://mspremiseconclusion.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/amigurumi-penguin.pdf

What you will need to make these: Some worsted weight yarn in whatever colour you would like your penguin to be (Main Colour), as well as white yarn and orange/yellow yarn (Beak Colour). I used safety eyes as the eyeballs (but just embroider on the eyes if you plan on giving this to a little kid.) I used a 3.75mm hook. The abbreviations are: Ch = chain, Sc = single crochet, ScDec = single crochet decrease and Sl st = slip stitch.


BODY

In Main Colour, Ch 2.
Row 1: 6 Sc in second chain from hook. (6 St)
Row 2: 2 Sc in each stitch around. (12 St)
Row 3: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (18 St)
Row 4: (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (24 St)
Row 5: (Sc in next 3 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (30 St)
Row 6-9: Sc in each stitch around. (30 St)
Row 10: (Sc in next 4 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (36 St)
Row 11-15: Sc in each stitch around. (36 St)
Row 16: (Sc in next 4 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (30 St)
Row 17: (Sc in next 3 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (24 St)
Row 18: (Sc in next 2 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (18 St)
Row 19: (Sc in next stitch. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (12 St)
Turn the body inside out ('V' side out) and stuff it firmly. Continue the final row once the body is stuffed.
Row 20: ScDec in each stitch around. (6 St)
Fasten off yarn. Weave the loose end through each remaining stitch. Pull tightly to close.

FACE

In White, Ch 5.
Row 1: Sc in second chain from hook. Sc in next 2 stitches. 4 Sc in next chain stitch. Working on the back side of chain stitches, Sc in next two stitches. 3 Sc in first chain stitch. (12 St)
Row 2: 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in each of the next 4 stitches. Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in each of the next 3 stitches. (20 St)
Row 3: Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch). Repeat () 3 more times. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch). Repeat () 2 more times. (28 St)
Row 4: Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () 3 more times. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () 2 more times. (36 St)
Row 5: Sc in next 26 stitches. Sl st to next stitch. (27 St)
Fasten off yarn. Leave a very long piece for sewing the face onto the body. Place stitch marker on last stitch made in Row 5. This will mark the bottom of the face.

WING

In Main Colour, Ch 2.
Row 1: 4 Sc in second chain from hook. (4 St)
Row 2: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () once more. (6 St)
Row 3: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (9 St)
Row 4: (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (12 St)
Row 5-6: Sc in each stitch around. (12 St)
Row 7: (Sc in next 2 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (9 St)
Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the wing onto the body.

BEAK

In Beak Colour, Ch 4.
Row 1: Sl st in third chain from hook. 3 Sc in next chain stitch. Working on the back side of the chain stitches, Sl st in next stitch. (5 St) Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the beak to the face. Weave in the other end.

FOOT

In Beak Colour, Ch 4.
Toe 1: Sl st in second chain from hook. Sl st in next 2 stitches. (3 St)
Toe 2: Ch 5. Sl st in second chain from hook. Sl st in next 3 stitches. (4 St)
Toe 3: Ch 4. Sl st in second chain from hook. Sl st in next 2 stitches. (3 St)
Row 1: Ch 1. Sc between Toe 3 and Toe 2. Sc between Toe 2 and Toe 1. (2 St)
Row 2: Ch 1. Turn. ScDec. (1 St) Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the foot to the body. Weave in the other end. Make 2 feet.


ASSEMBLY

With the 'V' side of the face facing you, sew the beak on to the top of the face (like in the picture). Attach the eyes to either side of the beak.
Sew the face onto the body starting at Rows 5 of the body. Stitch all around the perimeter of the face, using stitches on the back side of the face so that the stitches don't show from the front.
Turn each wing 'V' side out, press the wing flat and stitch the opening shut. Sew the wings onto either side of the body at Row 9.
Sew the feet onto the bottom of the penguin, so that they are roughly centered.

Ta da! You're done. You can also tweak this pattern to make a chick, too. Here's how:


Using the Penguin Pattern, make the penguin body in the colour you would like the chick to be (lets call it, the Chick Colour).

Before you begin stuffing the body, secure safety eyes between Rows 8-9, about 4-5 stitches apart. (If you are using beads for eyes, you can sew those on at the end.)

Make the penguin wings in Chick Colour.

Make the penguin feet in Beak Colour.

The chick beak is a in different style than the penguin beak. Here is how to make the chick beak:

In Beak Colour, Ch 2.
Row 1: 4 Sc in second chain from hook. (4 St)
Row 2: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () once more. (6 St)
Row 3: (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () once more. (8 St)
Sl st to next stitch. Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the beak onto the face.

Stuff the beak a tiny bit (itll be very small). Sew the beak onto the face, in between the eyes.

Sew the two feet onto the bottom of the body, just like in the penguin pattern.

Sew the two wings onto either side of the body, just like in the penguin pattern.

I hope you enjoy!

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / It's a Pacman Ghost with a Pattern! on: July 09, 2010 11:06:28 AM
Here's a Pacman Ghost that I wrote up a pattern for! I originally made this little guy from a sketch I drew, and it wasn't until I showed the finished ami to by boyfriend that he said, 'Well, it looks just like a pacman ghost.' And it really did. So - design alteration - now he's a Pacman Ghost!



If you would like this as a pdf, it's free on my blog: http://mspremiseconclusion.wordpress.com/2010/07/09/pacman-ghost-pattern/

The Pacman Ghosts come in Red, Blue, Pink and Orange. You will need White for the eyes and a bit of Navy Blue for the pupils. The finished ghost is about 4 inches tall. The abbrviations are: Ch = chain, Sc = single crochet, ScDec = single crochet decrease and Sl st = slip stitch.

Head/Body:

In Ghost Colour, Ch 2.
Row 1: 6 Sc in second chain from hook. (6 St)
Row 2: 2 Sc in each stitch around. (12 St)
Row 3: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (18 St)
Row 4: (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (24 St)
Row 5: (Sc in next 3 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (30 St)
Row 6: (Sc in next 4 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (36 St)
Row 7-16: Sc in each stitch around. (36 St)
Place stitch marker on the final stitch of the last row. Do not fasten off yarn. Refer to Figure 1 for the following instructions on how to make the legs.


Figure 1

Leg A
Row 1: Following the blue numbers in Figure 1, Sc in next 6 stitches. Ch 11.
Row 2: Sc in first stitch of the last row. Sc in next 5 stitches. Sc in next 11 chain stitches.
Row 3: Sc in next 6 stitches. Sc in next 3 stitches. ScDec. Sc in next stitch. ScDec. Sc in next 3 stitches.
Row 4: (ScDec. Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around.
Row 5: (ScDec.) Repeat () 3 times.
Fasten off yarn. Weave loose end through each remaining stitch. Pull tightly to close.

Leg B
Attach yarn in A6, leaving a long yarn end. Ch 1.
Row 1: Following the red numbers in Figure 1, Sc in next 6 stitches. Ch 11.
Row 2: Sc in first Sc of the last row. Sc in next 5 stitches. Sc in next 11 chain stitches.
Repeat Rows 3-5 from Leg A.

Leg C
Attach yarn in B6, leaving a long yarn end. Ch 1.
Row 1: Following the yellow numbers from Figure 1, Sc in next 6 stitches. Ch 11.
Row 2: Sc in first Sc of the last row. Sc in next 5 stitches. Sc in next 11 chain stitches.
Repeat Rows 3-5 from Leg A.

Leg D to F
Leg D: Attach yarn in C6. Leg E: Attach yarn in D6. Leg F: Attach yarn in E6. Always leave a long yarn end at the beginning. Continue the pattern established for each leg. Use Figure 1 as a guide.

Eyes

In White, Ch 2.
Row 1: 6 Sc in second chain from hook. (6 St)
Row 2: 2 Sc in each stitch around. (12 St)
Row 3: 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch. Sl st in next 3 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch. Sl st in next 3 stitches.
Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the eye to the head. Make 2 of these.

Pupil

In Nv, Ch 2. 6 Sc in second chain from hook. Sl st to first stitch. Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the pupil to the eye. Make 2 of these.

Assembly

Using the long yarn ends from each of the legs, stitch the legs together using the back loops from all of the chain stitches (like in the next picture). Remember that the centre chain stitch of each leg should be sewn to the centre chain stitch of every other leg, as it is the centre of the bottom of the ghost. Before you have completed the sewing, stuff the ghost firmly.

Sew the pupil to each eye. Sew each eye to the head between Rows 9 and 15 with the 'V' side of each eye facing you. Darn in any remaining loose ends.



If you're not into pacman ghosts, the body shape is also cute for sewing on a silly little face ... like this:



I hope you enjoy!!
