Totally off the hook

I promise I won't keep boring you all with any more pokemon, I've just been on a pokemon kick lately LOL.   I do make other stuff....  honest!

Psyduck is my favorite tho,  I love his expression....  probably because I've raised four kids  (ages 23, 21, 15 and 11 currently)...  and I see that same expression every day in my mirror...  Smiley  This picture isn't the greatest, but I was tired of messing with the lights, so here he is anyway.



The pattern is here at my blog: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/03/psyduck-with-pattern.html ,  with other patterns of mine  ....   But I am also posting it here for those who prefer.

PSYDUCK

Materials:
WW yarn Gold and light yellow
(I used RedHeart SS in Gold and Cornmeal)
Small amounts of white and brown WW yarn
F hook
Fiberfill
Yarn Needle

NOTES:

Gauge isn't really important as long as the stitches are moderately tight so that the fiberfill won't show through.

I tend to prefer to join my rounds, but if you prefer to use continuous rounds with stitch markers, that's fine.  Whichever is most comfortable for you.  I also recommend using the 'invisible' decrease stitch (make decrease stitches in the front loops only, instead of going thru both loops of the stitch.   They aren't *completely* invisible, but they do reduce the gaps a great deal especially in 3D pieces.

The numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row, are how many total stitches should be in that round/row.


HEAD AND BODY

Using Gold:

Rnd 1:  8 sc in magic ring  (Cool

Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around  (16)

Rnd 3: 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next around (24)

Rnd 4: 1 sc in first 2 sc, 2 sc in next around (32)

Rnd 5:  1 sc in first 3 sc, 2 sc in next around (40)

Rnd 6:  1 sc in first 4 sc, 2 sc in next around (48)

Rnd 7-14: 1 sc in each sc around (48)

Rnd 15: sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (40)

Rnd 16:  sc in each sc around (40)

Rnd 17:  sc in next 2 sc, dec over next sc around (30)

Rnd 18: repeat rnd 16  (30)

Rnd 19: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (45)

Rnd 20: repeat rnd 16 (45)

Rnd 21: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (54)

Begin stuffing the head moderately firmly.

Rnd 22-26: sc in each sc around (54)

Rnd 27: sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (60)

Rnd 28-37: sc in each sc around (60)

Rnd 38: sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (50)

Rnd 39: sc in each sc around (50)

Rnd 40: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (40)

Continue stuffing the body as with the head.

Rnd 41: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (30)

Rnd 42: sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc around (20)

Rnd 43  dec over next 2 sc around (10)

F/O leaving long tail.  Finish up stuffing if needed.  Using yarn needle, weave tail thru last round of stitches and pull tight to close.


ARMS (make 2)

Rnd 1:  9 sc in magic circle (9)

Rnd 2: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (12)

Rnd 3-5:  sc in each sc around (12)

Rnd 6: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)

Rnd 7-12): sc in each sc around (18)

Begin shoulder:

Row 13: sc in next 10 sc , turn (leave remaining stitches unworked)  (10)

Row 14: sc in each sc across, turn  (10)

Row 15: dec over first 2 sc, sc in next 6 sc, dec over last 2 sc, turn  (Cool

Row 16: dec over first 2 sc, sc in next 4 sc, dec over last 2 sc  (6)

F/O leaving long tail for sewing

HAND:

Row 1: Flatten out the 'hand'  (rounds 1-3)  making sure that the 'shoulder' is facing up.  Attach yarn in between rounds 2 and 3.  Ch 1, sc in same place. sc in space between rounds 1 and 2. 2 sc in first round (ring). sc in between rounds 1 and 2.  sc in between rounds 2 and 3.  turn.  (6 sc across 'hand')

Row 2:  ch 3  Sl st in second ch from hook, HDC in next ch.  sk 1 sc, sl st in next sc.  Ch 4, sl st in second ch from hook, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch. sk 1 sc sl st in next sc.  ch 3 sl st in second ch from hook hdc in next ch. sk 1 sc sl st to outside of last sc.  F/O weave in the end

_____________________________
(ALTERNATE HAND) 

If the hand instructions above are hard to understand, this method may be easier and gives a very similar finished appearance.

Row 1: ch 7. sc in second ch from hook and each ch across  (6)

Row 2. Follow row 2 of hand from above.   F/O leaving tail,  sew to end of arm across the end making sure that the 'shoulder' on other end is facing up.

Rnd 3-8: sc in each sc around (18)

Rnd 10:  sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc next sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in each of next 2 sc, sc next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc last 5 sc.  (27)

Rnd 11: sc in each sc around. (27)  F/O

With small amount of brown, make two 'nostrils' using picture to help placement with straight stitches.

FEET (make 4):

Using Light Yellow:

Row 1:  ch 4. sc in second ch from hook and each ch across  (3)

Row 2:  2 sc in first sc, sc in remaining sc across (4)

Row 3: repeat row 2  (5)

Going down the side, sc in end of each row.  2 sc in corner, sc in loop of beginning ch, 2 sc in corner, sc in end of each row back up the other side to the beginning of row 9.  (the side facing you at this point is the 'right' side of the piece)

Sc in first sc of row 9.  Ch 1, in next sc work the following:  DC, TR, DC.  Ch 1, sc in next 2 sc.  Ch 1,  in next sc work DC, TR, DC. Ch 1, sc in next 2 sc.  Ch 1, in next sc work DC, TR, DC. Ch 1 sc in last sc.   F/O

TAIL:

Rnd 5: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)

Rnd 6-7: repeat row 3 (18)

Rnd 8: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)

Rnd 9-11: repeat row 3 (24)

F/O  Flatten tail.  Tail is not stuffed.

ASSEMBLY:

I highly recommend pinning all the pieces in place before sewing them on, this will help get everything like you want it before it's permanent.   

Moderately stuff the arms (including leaving some available for the 'shoulder'.)  Place arms as shown.  Tilt head slightly to one side and 'tack' the hands to the sides of the head leaving the fingers free.  Sew on beak and eyes as shown.  Sew feet either on bottom of front for sitting position, or underneath for standing position.  Sew tail to bottom on back.

For his 'hair',  with brown, ch 8 sl st in second ch from hook and each ch across,  ch 9 sl st in second ch from hook and each ch to end, ch 8 sl st second ch from and each to end, F/O   tie the two ends together.  Attach to top of head a little to the back of center.

I'm still new at writing out patterns,  so if anything isn't right,  let me know and I'll fix it as quickly as possible.

Thanks for the compliments!

I can give Jigglypuff a go...  it'll be a couple of weeks tho,  cause I just looked thru my yarn stash and I don't have ANY pink.....   but I'll see if I can get some this weekend and work one up if I can.   I have to drive into the next town to get yarns, and sometimes they don't have any I can use,  so I have to order offline...  (I love small-town Texas living, but shopping can be a real pain at times  LOL)

My hubby and I both love Psyduck! Now I want to run out and make one for my little guy but he's only 15 months so he would just chew on him. Great job (from someone in Texas but not a small town).

Great, thanks.  My 10 year old just geeked all over me, and is begging me to make those for him.  He says you do excellent work, and I agree!   Grin
