Hello! I admired your pattern from the beginning and created one of my very own. I'm not very good at these cuties as I am still learning how to crochet but your pattern seemed quite simple and I thought I might give it a go. I altered mine a bit but nothing is better than the original you made. Here it is and thank you very much for presenting your pattern to all of us on Craftster Wink

Here is the front view. I made the eyes myself and used what I had to create Kerochan. The eyes are made of clay and colored with nail polish. HEHE! Didn't have any buttons as you can tell... ^_^;


This is a side view of him and with the tail I decided to make a pompom because I like the fluffiness aspect. Also I filled the ears with poly-fill for the squishyness instead of them being flat. Hey, who doesn't like a cuddly little guy?


The back of course. Well as for the wings. They are a huge difference from the ones of the pattern. I wanted to have the majority of the doll crocheted and I had to figure out how to make my own pattern to create the wings. With trail and error I created them and added the swirls. I filled them with poly-fill. My main problem was getting them on. I already had the little guy sewed so I had to think of a concept as to how to get the dang things on. My Mother was saying to velcro them with seemed like a good idea but I was afraid of messing up the stitching. Took me FOREVER! So I took a black ribbon. If you look at the other photos you can see the bow tied around his neck. That's from the ribbon and if untied would take the wings off. I thought that would be the best choice. Plus I LOVE BOWS!!! All he needs is a tuxedo!


Lastly, here he is next to my wallet. Excuse the dirtyness of it but I wanted to show how tall he was. My wallet is about 4 1/2 inches tall.

This is so-o-o adorable.  I guess I'm not too savvy about yarns.  Just what is kerochan yarn?  And what size hook did you use?  I would like to try this and use some yarn from my own stash rather than buy additional yarn.  I know I could possible use any ayrn and hook suitable for that yarn, but I do like the idea of it being small enough for a keychain.

I can tell you that the yarn I used was sport weight. What she means when she says kerochan yarn is that it matches the character's color. In parenthesis she says a orangish yellow. If you have that sort of yarn on hand use that. Also in her pattern she has just yellow which is for the inside of the ears. Don't get them mixed up. They're just two shades of yellow. As for the hook size I used F because I like having my stiches more tight but I believe your supposed to use a G with the type of yarn I had. Finally you were saying you liked the idea of him being small, well mine came out rather large as you can see and I have a huntch that Ournew's was smaller than mine. In otherwords, your going to need a smaller hook size and yarn. I'm not sure but I think they call it thread at that point with the small material. Hope this helps Wink
