1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Male applique on: May 10, 2007 09:04:03 AM
Well, is not a strictly crochet question. A male friend asked me to crochet a scarf for him (yellow one) and he wants me to make a cute detail on it, but the scarf still have to look manly. I thought the "cute detail" has to be an applique sort of thing, but I would like you to suggest other options if you know anyone.

Thanks in advance!

Rnd 3~7: sc around

Tail (Using Kerochan yarn): ch 35


Tails pompon (Using white yarn)

Rnd 1: 6 sc into ring, sl st into first sc (6 sts)
Cut strands of yarn approximately 9 cm long. For each fringe, hold 1 strands of yarn together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through each loop of the 6 sc ring. Pull ends of fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten. Make 2 fringes evenly across each loop of each chain. Trim if necessary. Attach pompon to tail (Put tail though middle of the 6 sc ring and tie a knot)

I know this can be a little complicated and slow to do, a regular pompon will be fine.


Wings (Using white felt)





Make 4, make a simple embroidery with grey floss as seen on the picture. Sew 2 wings together and put a little stuffing inside.
(The wing picture you'll have to adjust it when you print it out to your desired size, it's not the real size)


Kerochan Assembly
(sorry for my crappy english, I'll explain the best I can)

Sew wings to the body (back part) using white floss. Attach tail at the bottom of the body. Stuff body.

On the head, put eyes on, embroider nose and mouth using black floss. Stuff head.

Sew head and body together.

Stuff legs and sew them on the body, align them below the eyes.

Stuff arms and sew them on the sides of the body, 2 rounds below the bottom of the head

Sew the yellow semicircles on the ears. Sew ears on the head.

This is the first pattern I write, please ask if anything is not clear.
