EDIT 9/19/08: Pattern is finished, and rounds 11 and 12 of the feet were fixed!!

Um... hello.... I am new? I hope this is the right place to put this...  Smiley

Wakko

This little guy is really cute, and made very much like an Elisabeth D amigurumi. It would be really easy to modify this into a Yakko... just make longer arms, legs, and different clothing. (I've included few tips for doing this in the pattern.) Dot has a differently shaped head, so I don't know if you could make her from this, but... Also, the white face part would make a really good Mickey Mouse face!  Shocked

Materials:
 Yarn
      Cheapo Red Heart Super Saver in Red, Black, White, and Aqua Blue
 Some black felt
 Tapestry needle
 Two 9 mm animal snap-on safety eyes
 Needle and thread for sewing felt

   -end off, leaving long tail. Sew brim to back of hat (opposite side of ear holes).

The big end of the ears will NOT fit through the ear holes of the hat. Put on the hat and sew the ears on through the ear holes. Then sew down the rest of the hat with the red tail of the hat (AFTER the white face is done and on!). The hat should come down over the white eye bumps, but a bit of black should be visible between them!

19-20) sc around (twice)
21) sl st around in FLO
   -end off, weave in tail

Hand (Type 1) (make 2)
   Okay, so the hands are a bit confusing. Theyre EASY, but the pattern is all jumble-y. So! I will write the full-blown jumble first, and then follow it with a much simplified synopsis.
   -ch 5 with white
1) hdc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn (4)
2) ch 2 (does NOT count as hdc, so you will need to crochet in last st of previous round), hdc in last from prev, hdc, ch 5, turn
3) hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc 3 along ch, hdc in the 2 hdc sts from previous round, do NOT crochet in the ch 2 space, turn (6)
4) ch 2, hdc in last from prev, hdc 2, ch 5, turn
5) hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc 3 along ch, hdc in the 3 hdc sts from previous round, do NOT crochet in the ch 2 space, turn (7)
6) ch 2, hdc in last from prev, hdc 2, ch 4, turn
7) hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc 2 along ch, hdc in the 3 hdc sts from previous round, do NOT crochet in the ch 2 space, turn (6)
   -end off, leaving long tail

Synopsis
1) hdc 4
2) hdc 2, ch 5
3) hdc 6
4) hdc 3, ch 5
5) hdc 7
6) hdc 3, ch 4
7) hdc 6

Hand (Type 2 Reverse!) (make 2)
   Because Im a perfectionist, I like to have the same side of my crochet sticking out on both sides of the hand so it looks the same. This means that I cant make 4 of the same piece- two of them need to be in reverse. If you dont care about perfectionism, skip this and make four type 1 hands. (Its not hard, though, just the type 1 hand starting from the pinky end, not the thumb end.)

   -ch 7 with white
1) hdc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn (6)
2) ch 2 (does NOT count as hdc, so you will need to crochet in last st of previous round), hdc in last from prev, hdc 2, ch 5, turn
3) hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc 4 along ch, hdc in the 3 hdc sts from previous round, do NOT crochet in the ch 2 space, turn (7)
4) ch 2, hdc in last from prev, hdc 3, ch 4, turn
5) hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc 2 along ch, hdc in the 3 hdc sts from previous round, do NOT crochet in the ch 2 space, turn (6)
6) ch 2, hdc in last from prev, hdc, ch 3, turn
7) hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc along ch, hdc in the 2 hdc sts from previous round, do NOT crochet in the ch 2 space, turn (4)
   -end off, leaving long tail

Synopsis
1) hdc 6
2) hdc 3, ch 5
3) hdc 7
4) hdc 3, ch 4
5) hdc 6
6) hdc 2, ch 3
7) hdc 4

Finishing the hands
   Put a type I and type II hand same-sides-together, and sew together using a tail from either side. Once thats done youre going to crochet around the bottom rim of the glove, so

1) Join white anywhere in the bottom rim of the glove with a sl st. Sc 16 evenly around (put sts wherever, but try and make it about 8 for each side)
2) (sc dec, sc 2) around (12)
3) sc around in FLO
4) sc around
   End off, and roll up the last two rounds. Use tail to sew roll if it wont stay.

Arm
1) Join black anwhere in an used back loop from round 3 of the gloves with a sl st, and sc 12 around
2-7) sc around (7 times total)
   End off

Sleeves (make 2)
   -ch 24 with blue and join with sl st in first ch to make a ring
1) (sc dec, sc) around (16) do not join, do not turn! Spiral time!

2) sc around and sc dec once somewhere random (15)
3) sc around
4) sc around and sc dec once somewhere random (14)
5) sc around
6) sc around and sc dec once somewhere random (13)
7) sc around
8 ) sc around and sc dec once somewhere random (12)
9) sc around
10) Jam the arm into the sleeve and sc around going through the 12 sts of BOTH the sleeve and the arm
11-13) sc around (in sleeve only) (3 times total)
14) sc dec around (6)
   End off, leaving long tail. Put animal eye (the eye piece) in the sleeve and stick the post out between rows 13 and 14 in a spot where the thumb will be facing forward when it is attached. Push post through sweater, right underneath the collar, and CHECK THAT BOTH ARMS LOOK GOOD ON BEFORE YOU SNAP THE WASHERS! It is IMPOSSIBLE to remove safety snap-on eyes after you snap them, so be careful about where you put the arms! You only get one chance to do this step!
   When the arms are on securely, use the tail from the sleeve to cinch the sleeve opening shut.

Final Finishing
Once all the bits and pieces of the top (face, ears, hat, arms) are sewn/snapped on, the tail is sewn on the body, and everything is stuffed very well, use the long black tail from the body and sew the last round of sts from the body to the unused back loops of the bottom of the sweater.

I knooooooow.  Embarrassed
I said, "Gee Brain, what are we going to do tonight?" the other day and the co-worker I was talking to (who is only 4 years younger than me!) says...
"Huh?"
Me: "You know. Pinky and the Brain."
"And the who?"
Me: "...the Brain? Like... Animaniacs?"
"Ani...who?"

It made me feel very old (and sad!).

o...O I'm only 18 and that sickens me. I adore the animaniacs and how crazy they were. And Pinky and the Brain was my favorite.

I love how his hands turned out on him. They remind me exactly of him. And his hat. <3

I loved that cartoon.  I'm surprised that young people don't know them.  The 90's wasn't that long ago.  Were they still on in early 2000's?  I can't remember exactly how long they ran but it wasn't so long ago.  

Someone on here said that people in her class don't know what a Rubic's Cube is. Unbelievable considering they still make those.

Lol, I forgot to tell how much I love your pattern.  Any chance of making any of the other characters?

I actually made Yakko a looong time ago, but he's pretty much a direct copy of Elisabeth D's "Hep Cat". (I still need to fix his feet, though... blurgh.)

Also, to Frenchtea: http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b58/BunnieBard/WakkoHand.jpg
I looooove his haaaands tooooooo! Cheesy And the stupid brim of his hat took like 8 tries to get right... I'm too much of a perfectionist sometimes.

I hope somebody else makes this, and takes a picture for me.  Cheesy Nobody has ever made one of my patterns... I also have a Link from Zelda and a Mega Man one I should post here...
