I want to make a Teto amigurumi for a Nausicaa cosplay I hope to do soon. I made Umbreon according to WolfDreamer's Umbreon (http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2010/08/umbreon-plushie.html) and noticed that it was really close to what I needed for Teto -including the size. Does anyone have any hints on how to modify the umbreon pattern into Teto? This is the first time I've wanted to do something like this, so advice from experienced amigurumi crafters would be really helpful! Especially on how to do the stripes!

Teto size and character reference:

See the Umbreon pattern for pictures!

For the stripes I would use an applique type thing.  Make a 2-D stripe and sew it on to the finished dog/cat/wolf thing Tongue  as far as modifying it's mostly a trial and error type thing, rip back if it don't look right.  Best of luck Smiley

Hmm I agree, I think for the stripes that don't go the whole way around the body (and for the head also), it would probably be easiest to cut out felt shapes and attach (or crochet flat shapes and attach), rather than incorporating the colour changes into your crochet.  For the ones that go all the way around it would be easy enough to crochet the colour changes though (like on the tail).
The pattern looks like a good match though!
Other thoughts:  Make the body shorter and legs thicker?
Not sure how the best way to create the mane/neck ruff would be.

Good luck! Smiley

maybe for the mane part you could try a stuffed doughnut type shape, just a crochet tube that's connected on itself.  or maybe do an applique that's doubled or tripled up to build the width of it.
