So I was determined to make my own pattern.  Since this was my first there were quite a few failures that I learned from ... painfuly, lol.  These turned out great though! I still haven't done anything with the loose strands.  I am going to leave them there for a while till I figure out if I want to do something with them or not. 

I got the inspiration to make a poring when I made my husband a slime using http://arpelia.blogspot.com/2008/03/slime-amigurumi.html 's pattern. 


They are about 1.25" in width.  (Tried to use a ruler but failed. oh wellz)

The Teal one!


The Pink one!


The Yellow one!


The Green one!


---------------------

Here is the pattern!  If anyone else could test it out that would be great! 

Used Worsted Weight Yarn.  I couldn't tell you the brand. 
F/5-3.75mm crochet hook
Eyes 6mm saftey eyes
Black Embroidery thread and sewing needle.

Abbreviations
sc single crochet
st slip stich
inc increase (2 sc in a single st)
dec decrease (crochet the next 2 sc together)

Pattern
Rd 1: 5 Sc (5)
Rd 2: *2 sc in next st (aka an Increase)*Repeat 5 times (10)
Rd 3: *1 sc, inc * Repeat 5 times (15)
Rd 4: *2 sc , inc* Repeat 5 times (20)
Rd 5: *4 sc, inc* Repeat 4 times (24)
Rd 6: *24 sc* (24)
Rd 7: *2 sc, dec* Repeat  Times (18)
Rd 8: *1sc, dec* Repeat 6 times (12)

Stuff  the poring with polyfill so you can plan how to do the face then remove the polyfill.  When I stuffed it I used the end of the crochet hook to push in the poly fill.  Sew the face and insert the safety eyes.   Once you have finished doing the face stuff the poring. 

Rd 9: *2sc, dec* Repeat 4 times (9)
Rd 10: *1sc, dec* Repeat 3 times (6)
Rd 11: * Skip a stich,then do a slip stich *  3 times

Tie knot and your done.

----------------

I am still debating whether or not it would be better to do the face and eyes after Round 8 or 7.  I think Round 8.  I am also trying to think about how to describe sewing the face so you can get the :3.  Pictures probably will be the best way to do it. 

I need to go to the local yarn shop and pick up some better colors, these were just for practice to test the pattern.  I am also trying to figure out how to make a devilring and angelring one too!  I have no idea how to approach making the wings. 

If anyone could test out my pattern that would be great! :3

Hope you enjoy the porings!

They are really cute!
You should totally leave the strings on and string them all over the place, like in random park trees or whatnot like one of Woowork's projects: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=337362.0... I think it would be super awesome to stumble across some of them...

I was thinking the same thing, but use them as Christmas ornaments.  I like this better though. Smiley

Those are great ideas.  I need to acquire some more yarn so I can make some more with longer tails.  :3  I must try this!

Awwwww!!!! these are sooo cute!!! Y'know, if you add an extra piece of yarn to the tail at the top, you could hang them on things (like the mirror of a car) :p

My husband and I tried to do that with the slime I made and hanging it on the rear view mirror.  It is always twirling around though.  I should take a picture of us him in the car with the slime. Cheesy  Porings would look cute too!
