Rnd 4: *sc 2, 2-sc inc into next st* around (24 sts)
Rnd 5: *sc 3, 2-sc inc into next st* around (30 sts)

Rnd 21: *sc 3, 2-dec into next st* around (24 sts)

Rnd 3: *sc 1, 2-sc inc into next st* around (18 sts)

Arms (Make 2 using Kerochan yarn)

Rnd 1: 6 sc into ring (6 sts)
Rnd 2: *sc 2, 2-sc inc into next st* around (8 sts)
Rnd 3~7: sc around

Legs (Make 2 using Kerochan yarn)

Rnd 1: 6 sc into ring (6 sts)
Rnd 2: 2-sc inc around (12 sts)
Rnd 3~8: sc around

Ears (Make 2 using Kerochan yarn)

Rnd 1: 6 sc into ring (6 sts)
Rnd 2: 2-sc inc around (12 sts)
Rnd 3: *sc 1, 2-sc inc into next st* around (18 sts)
Rnd 4: *sc 2, 2-sc inc into next st* around (24 sts)
Rnd 5~8: sc around


Inside the ears (Make 2 using yellow yarn)

Rnd 1: 3 sc into ring, ch 1, turn (3 sts)
Rnd 2: 2-sc inc across, ch 1, turn (6 sts)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, 2-sc inc into next st* across, ch 1, turn (9 sts)
Rnd 4: *2 sc, 2-sc inc into next st* across, ch 1, turn (12 sts)
Rnd 5: *3 sc, 2-sc inc into next st* across, ch 1, turn (15 sts)


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.

he came out perfect! Kerochan was the only reason I watched that show. Now they don't play it here anymore but I still love him. Smiley Great job! I can understand why you don't want to part with him.

Awwww, he's sooooooo cute!  You did a great job!

I prefer Kerochan in the Japanse version- his voice is so much cuter.
