How did you make the boots and the arms n the blue one?

I am going to write a complete pattern for Nightcrawler soon. Basically, the last row of sc before I started increasing to make the boots/gloves flair out, I did a row of sc that was FLO. After I finished the boots, I went back to the FLO row with the leg/arm color and did a row of BLO. Then I just continued the pattern.

BONUS!

Making Nightcrawler, I stumbled upon the easiest best pointed ears ever. Check out this simple awesomeness:

Ch 4
In 2nd ch, sl st
In 3rd ch, sc
In 4th ch, hdc
Tie the ends together and Voila!



This pointy ear is definitely going to go on a Spock and a Link in the future.

Ahhh! This is awesome! The pattern in general is really easy. I made up a head and most of the body, then decided I wanted it larger, and started over with a bigger hook, and got all that and an arm done in just a couple of hours. I'm making my boyfriend a pair of them.(The amis) One has to have some nice boots. Smiley

So, just making sure I understand right, you make the full leg, then go back in the right color and do this, correct?

And those ears really are super awesome. *steals them away into the night*

No, no! You make the boots first. Now that I'm home, I can consult my notebook for exactly what I did.

For the legs, I started with the boot color and followed the pattern with the following changes:

Rnd 14: FLO sc around
Rnd 15: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 3 sc, repeat
Rnd 16: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, repeat
Rnd 17: sc around (I did this in an accent color)
Finish off. The boot is done.

Then you go back to Rnd 14 with the leg color and put it in BLO. Then just continue with the pattern for Rnd 15, etc. as usual.

I had a little difficulty finding exactly where I should connect my yarn for the BLO row, so when I start my FLO row, I use 2 stitch markers, one in the FL to count my rounds as usual and one in the BL to show where to connect the yarn when I go back to it.

I have a question: I first made one of these over a year ago, the stomach turned out pretty big, and I thought it was because of the hook size I used. I'm using an F hook on my current one, and row fifteen where you do two sc then 1 sc then two sc in the stitch, seems a bit much. are you sure that number is right? I did up to row nineteen of the straight Sc's and it was looking humongous.

THANK YOU!! I'm terrible at shaping and proportions.. I generally stick to tubes when I design amigurumi. Hopefully I can finally attempt some of the ones I scrapped.

Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver.
