I've been trying to find a leak pattern I liked, but I had no luck.  I was going to give up until I thought, "Hey, I know how to write patterns!  I'll just come up with my own*in-put evil laughter*!"  Having a brother who's a fan of Miku Hatsune(the Vocailiod) helps.

Anyhoo, I'm proud of how the pattern turned out, so I'm sharing it with you all!  If you make one, I'd love to see it!



Life-sized Mikus Leak Amigurumi

Supplies
WW yarn in green and white(I used Red Heart Super Saver in Spring Green and White)
Fiber-Fill
F hook
Some kind of ref picture of Miku Hatsunes leak


Main Stalk and Body of leak

   With F hook and green yarn:

Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring or ch 2 and sc 6 into 2nd ch from hook. (6sc)
Rnd 2:  2sc in each sc around. (12)
Rnd 3:  Sc in 1st sc, 2sc in next sc around. (18 )
Rnd 4:  (in back loops only this rnd) Sc in each sc around. (18 )
Rnd 5 - 40:  Sc in each sc around, stuffing as you go(18 ).  In last sc of rnd 40, change to white.  Continue to stuff the leak as you go, as this will save you from a headache later.
Rnd 41 - 49:  Sc in each sc around(18).
Rnd 50:  Sc in next 7sc, dec over 2sc X 2(16).
Rnd 51 - 69:  Sc in each sc around(16).
Rnd 70:  Sc in next 7sc, dec over 2sc, sc in last 7sc(15).
Rnd 71 - 86:  Sc in each sc around(15).
Rnd 87:  (in back loops only this rnd)Sc in 1st sc, dec over 2sc around(10).
Rnd 88:  Dec over 2sc around(5).  F/O, leaving a tail long enough to sew up the hole in the bottom.  Doesnt have to be perfect, but try to do so neatly, adding any last bit of stuffing that might be needed before you close it up.


2nd Stalk

   With WW green yarn and F hook

Rnd 1:  6sc in magic ring or ch 2 and sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook(6).
Rnd 2:  2sc in each sc around(12).
Rnd 3:  Sc in next 3sc, 2sc in next sc around(15).
Rnd 4:  (in back looks only this rnd) Sc in each sc around(15).
Rnd 5 - 18:  Sc in each sc around(15).
Rnd 19:  Sc in next 7sc, 3sc in next sc, sc in last 7sc(17).
Rnd 20:  Sc in next 8sc, 3sc in next sc, sc in last 8sc(19).
Rnd 21:  Sc in next 9sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in last 9sc(20).  F/O, leaving a long tail for sewing.  Stuff firmly.  Use you ref picture for placement of the 2nd stalk and sew in place.




As a side-note, you can make a Tonfa(Billy club, nightstick, police club), by crocheting all the parts of the leak with one color, and leaving rnds 19 - 21 of the 2nd stalk off.  Sew the handle to the longer piece about 6 inches from the top of the fatter end.  This would be great for cosplaying Striker from Mortal Kombat.
