Thanks guys! Im glad you like him! Smiley My friend was very pleased as well. To the person who asked, i dont think im going to make the rest of the crew, only cause i dont have the correct colors and i cant afford more yarn right now...Plankton was made possible by scraps of left over yarn from a previous project.
Im kind of new to crochet-making-upping, so for now i'll give you the best tute i know how to give...uh...

Like i said, i used a size H hook, and some soft olive green yarn.
I started: ch 4 and joined them into a ring, then i did 8 sc in the ring.
Next, 2sc in each sc around, then simply sc around until you've got a length you like.
Stuff him, and then continue by decreasing every sc until you've got like 8 sc left at the bottom.
I dont know how else to say it but i used four of those sc for one leg and four for the other, and to make the legs you sort of just
sc and decrease until you get to a point.

Eye: i did ch4, sc in 3, 2sc in the fourth, then just continue around the other side. Continuing like this around and around (2sc in the ends) i ended up with an oval-ish shape. The pupil was stitched on with red yarn and a tapestry needle. The white is simply a knot. Then i attached the eye. I strung some more olive green yarn over his eye for the eyelid, just basically back and forth.

Mouth: I stitched on a triangle-ish shape with white yarn and then outlined it with black embroidery floss. Honestly, the whole thing was rather frankenstein-ish because i kept screwing up and cutting incorrect threads, and...well, you'd probably be better off experimenting and finding your own way to do it... His upper lip, for example, had to be constructed because underneath it lies about a quarter inch of ugly experimental mouth lines with the black floss.

Antennae: I cut a piece of pipe cleaner about 8 inches long, strung it through his head and then wrapped each one with a darker green yarn, leaving some of the brown fuzz to stick through, and being sure to attach the wrapping yarn to the base of his head so that they dont float around.

arms: almost the same thing. stuck a short piece straight through his side and wrapped both ends with olive green, completely this time.

**Im sorry that was such a terrible tute, when i was making him, i wasnt really thinking about the fact that other people would want to make it too, so i was just sort of making things up and patching them together. If someone can look at what i did and try to figure out a better way to explain the process, that would be wonderful Smiley If you've got questions, lay em on me, i'll do my best....
