I may have to try making this as Christmas gifts for my fellow Final Fantasy nerd friends. Chocobos are so cute! Smiley

I'm still working on making a chocobo!  I just get a little busy sometimes Cheesy

I had some problems on the beak, specifically on rows 5 and 6.  I couldn't figure out what exactly you meant by 4 sc then sc followed by an Inc 4x, it sounds like you want 5 sc then an increase (sc two in the same spot)?  or do you want 4 then an increase (sc two in the next spot) and so you actually do more than a full row of stitches, or am I just misunderstanding because I've taught myself how to crochet and it's been very much trial and error Smiley  I did this instead for rows 5 and 6 so I would end up with the same stitches in each row that you did

My row 5 - [2 sc, Inc] 4 times (16)
My row 6 - [2 sc, dec] 4 times (12)  Finish off.

Also, my beak point looked wonky, but it looks fine if I turn it inside out, I'm going to give it one more go before I pick my finished beak.

Beak:   4 Sc in ring. (4) Use orange yarn.
   Row2-Sc around. (4)
   Row3-Inc around. (8 )
   Row4-Sc then Inc until you have 12 Sc around. (12)
   Row5- 4 Sc then Sc followed by an Inc 4xs. (16)
   Row6- 4 Sc then Sc followed by a Dec until you have 12 Sc around. (12) Cast off.

Also, in the Largest Wing piece, in the following rows, when you refer to the chain...

Quote
Largest Wing piece: This is the base of the wing and is placed under the other two. As you make it, it will begin to curl like a flower petal, this is not a mistake in tension as its curve will make it conform to the shape of the body.
Row1- ch 4, 2 dc in chain. (2) turn, ch2.
Row2-  2 dc in first dc of row. Skip 1 dc, and make 2 dc in chain. (4) turn, ch2.
Row3- 3 dc in 1st dc of row, skip next dc, 2 dc in same dc space, skip dc, 1 dc, slip stitch to chain. (6) turn, ch2.
Row4- 2 dc, skip dc, 1 dc, skip dc, 1 dc, skip dc, 5 dc in last dc space. (9) Cast off. Make 2. The bases of the two wings are now complete. If you do not wish to layer the wings, you can stop here and sew one each to each side of the body.

are you referring to the starting chain in row 1?

Mommai:

For rows 5 and 6 of the beak, you are making 4 sc's followed by a repeating patten of inc or dec's.

Row 5: sc,sc,sc,sc,sc,inc,sc,inc,sc,inc,sc,inc. (16) Thats it broken down by individual stitch. And the next row...
Row 6: sc,sc,sc,sc,sc,dec,sc,dec,sc,dec,sc,dec. (12)

What this should do is create a lip that sticks out along the rim of the beak. That lip goes on the bottom side of the head.

As for the large wing piece: It made sense in my notes, I swear!  Undecided
I made it again, and decided a simpler pattern looked just as good, so I rewrote it a little and hopefully made it easier to understand. Try this....

Largest Wing piece: This is the base of the wing and is placed under the other two. As you make it, it will begin to curl like a flower petal, this is not a mistake in tension as its curve will make it conform to the shape of the body. (NOTE: chain 2's count as dc's on the largest wing piece and will be counted at the end of the row with the other dc's in the row count.)
Row1- ch 4, 2 dc in first loop on chain(by the slipknot). (3) turn, ch2.
Row2-  2 dc in first dc of row. Skip 1 dc, and make 2 dc in chain (which counts as a dc remember?). (5) turn, ch2.
Row3- 5 dc across. (6) turn, ch2.
Row4- 5 dc across, 5 dc in last dc space (the chain from the row below). (11) Cast off. Make 2. The bases of the two wings are now complete. If you do not wish to layer the wings, you can stop here and sew one each to each side of the body.

I'm going to correct it on the pattern in the post as well, thank you for telling me where all the screw up's are! You're a great help, seriously!!!! Grin

My husband and both of my sons (moreso my oldest son) love chocobos!  They spent hours in the chocobo races! 
I personally am not a FF fan - I think it's all the blips and goofy music but my oldest son just adored it all.
I will NOT show them this picture!!  They will want me to make chocobos til my fingers fall off!!

I maded one! He's so cute! You can't tell from the pic, but he has three different yellows in his feathers...as for the wings...Hrk. Double crochet and I have epic battles which I usually lose... so I just made lots o' the tail feathers from your pattern and sewed 'em together. It works! I call him Mr. Kweh McWarkwark. He sits in my lap while I play Dissidia and I make him dance when my progress chocobo chirps! Awwww....

So... I just realized that I've been making amigurumis (and everything else in the round) somewhat incorrectly, no wonder I was having trouble x_x  I'll be starting over (yet again!) sometime soon, I just need to get a jump on some other projects before my baby is born in a month.  I WILL finish a chocobo, I've got a personal vendetta now! Cheesy
