Title: Worm from Labyrinth **with pattern and photo tute!! Finally!! **
Post by: FoxyBlue on May 17, 2011 07:11:56 PM
I made this guy for the Labyrinth swap. He's been in transit from Canada to Scotland for 7 weeks now :( I hope the little guy gets  to his home soon!



*Please note: this pattern is not intended for children.

Materials:
- Bernat chunky in cream (or something similar)
- 5mm crochet hook
- yarn needle
- safety eyes (I don't have the package, but they are 3/4 inch wide)
- cream coloured felt
- Method of choice for adding colour (ie: oil pastels, or eye shadow, or pencil crayons - I used pastels)
- Red yarn for scarf if you choose to crochet one. I didn't have red yarn, so I just cut some fabric.
- polyester filling
- hot glue gun or fabric glue

Pattern:


R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook
R2: Sc 2 in each sc around (12 sts)
R3: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times (18 stitches)
R4: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times (24 stitches)
R5: *Sc 3, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times (30 stitches)
R6,7,8: sc around

Decrease rows:

R9: *Sc 3, sc2tog*, rep 6 times (24 stitches)
R10: *Sc2, sc2tog*, rep 6 times (18 stitches)
R11: Sc1, sc2tog*, rep 6 times (12 stitches)

Repeat rows 3-11 4 more times. This creates the ridges in his wormy body.

After last decrease row, break yarn, leaving a very long tail for the closing up the top of the head which you will do later.

Place safety eyes as pictured:


In order to make the upper and lower lids, grab any ol' paper lying around and trace the contours of the eyes, as pictured, and then trace your eyelid pattern onto the cream-coloured felt and cut four out.


With your colouring medium of choice, add a little shading:


For the mouth (make two)
R1: Ch 4
R2: Sc 1, sc 2 in next two stitches, sc 1 (6 stitches)

Using colour medium of choice, add a little colour to the inside of mouth. Sew to face as pictured:



For cheeks and chin (make 3)
R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook.
R2: Sc around (six stitches)
Weave in the slip knot tail and leave the end tail long for sewing to the face as pictured:


Now it's time to stuff the little guy! Don't over stuff because you want him to be bendable and squishy (I've never even heard of a non-squishy worm...have you?)

After that, take some wire the length of the little guy (curl the ends so that they don't poke through) and push it all the way to the tail. This is what makes him posable. He should look like this:

Now curl that wire down and start to seal him up!

The last decrease is simply to Sc2tog all the way around until he closes up and then break yarn and weave in the ends.

Now the fun begins! Adding his adorable blue fur and bringing him to life! Add the fur just as you would the fringe of a scarf. I use three strands for each tuft and then they aren't too bulky. Use the pics below as an idea of how to add the tufts and colour his back. Do this however you like. I used pastels, but do whatever works for you. I've been given some really great suggestions by other craftsters, so have a  look back at some of the comments if you would like inspiration.




For the scarf, you can knit one, crochet one, or just use some red fabric scraps from your stash!

***I've done my best to make this pattern understandable for you all, but I've never written a crochet pattern before, so please forgive me if it's hard to understand. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions at all. I'll definitely try to help!

***Please show pics of your finished projects. I would LOVE to see them!

***Also, please don't sell these little guys. Make as many as you want for yourself or for gifts, though! If you wouldn't mind crediting me, that would also be cool ;)

Thanks and I look forward to your feedback!

"Did you just say hello?"

Yaaaay! He's awesome! You are inspiring me to someday learn to crochet.
I hope he makes it to his new home.

This rocks!

Thanks so much!!! I kind of wrote up a pattern as I went along, but since I'm not much of a crocheter, I don't know if people would understand it ha ha. But if anyone's interested in the pattern, let me know and I'll put it up for you all to decipher!

Eeeeeeeeeeee! He's incredible XD All Hail Labyrinth inspired crochet!
I really need to make him for my sister(or maybe me ;P)
I'm game at trying to decipher a pattern if it'll turn out anything like this gorgeous creature.
Congrats on creating this adorableness :D

Title: Re: Worm from Labyrinth :)
Post by: t33ng1rlsqu4d on May 17, 2011 10:32:33 PM
This little guy is way more true to the film than any of the "official" plushes you can find online. Very nicely done!

I'd be interested in a pattern, as well.

Thank you thank you thank you!! Love you guys for pumpin' me up :D

Okay, so here's the deal, I need to make another one to figure out how I did it. The pattern I wrote is hard for even me to decipher lol. I will make another one when I get back from my trip to Spain and I will write the pattern down properly as I go along. I'm so sorry! But I promise to make him again and I promise to give you a pattern as soon as I can!

Post by: seabound23 on May 19, 2011 10:11:19 PM
Never in my life have I wanted to "OMG" out loud. Seriously. I've been so wrapped up in my son, work, and school that crafting has taken a major backseat. So much so that I missed a Labyrinth swap?! I'm bummed, bc I would've loved to receive something as awesome as this! *my favorite character!*


Title: Re: Worm from Labyrinth :)
Post by: jw on May 20, 2011 08:26:07 AM
this makes me so happy! I wish he was mine! I keep doing the scene in my head now laughing to myself like a freak.   :-*

Title: Re: Worm from Labyrinth :)
Post by: Muddud on May 20, 2011 08:29:14 PM
You did an amazing job - whoever gets him in the swap will be through the roof! Thanks for being willing to remake him just to figure out the pattern, we all owe you one!


Title: Re: Worm from Labyrinth :)
Post by: Angeldreams on May 21, 2011 03:22:43 AM
Oh my, you did an amazing job!!!

My baby sis and I use to watch Labyrinth constantly, she had almost the entire movie down by heart and would run around the house quoting parts of the movie to anyone who would listen...well even those who didn't listen as well as her stuffed animals lol!

I will definitely have to make her one of these, she'll flip for it :)


Title: Re: Worm from Labyrinth :)
Post by: Len on May 21, 2011 08:03:30 AM
Squeeeee!!! Omg this is the. most. awesome. amigurumi ever!!!!

I love him. And I'd love a pattern, too. You would definitely become my new hero.  ;D

PS .
I kind of wrote up a pattern as I went along, but since I'm not much of a crocheter, I don't know if people would understand it ha ha.

This is beyond amazing! I've tried making a the worm from the labyrinth before with NO luck, the fact that you winged your own pattern is awesome! I can't wait to try it out :) He will go with my Jareth bust, hoggle toy, and ludo plushie!  :)

This is probably the most wonderful crochet project I have ever seen. Looking forward to the pattern, and thank you so much for rewriting it. As everyone has said, I too must have one! (or three)....
Amazing job!

Post by: FoxyBlue on July 11, 2011 06:10:59 AM
You've all put a fire under my butt. I feel so bad not having given you the pattern yet. I'm just so worried that you won't understand it or that you'll think it's odd lol. I mean, I even use pastels to colour him at some points. He's really very simple. You'll be shocked. I'm going to our lake house this week alone with my little girl. I'll try and do the pattern then. I just feel so guilty leaving you all hanging like this! I promise that I won't disappoint you!


Title: Re: Worm from Labyrinth :)
Post by: FoxyBlue on July 12, 2011 08:05:32 AM
FYI - I put all the supplies together and I'm ready to head to the cabin and remake him so that I may write a pattern for you all!

Post by: sewhappysue on July 12, 2011 10:22:22 AM
FoxyBlue, I wouldn't beat yourself up over not having a pattern finished. Those of us who know what goes into a design have the patience to wait and the good sense to know how much you are saving our poor brains.I don't know of any crocheter who is conventional. Conventional is granny squares and dollies. And you do have talent which is why everyone is raving about your worm. I just introduced my 6 year old grandson to the movie and he didn't move or chatter through the whole thing. Relax and enjoy your cabin time. As for pastels to color, my budget is a little too tight to afford them but I have a whole array of eye and check colors from the dollar tree that work fine for me.

That is so very kind of you! Thank you so much for all of those words. You made me smile :)

As for the parts when he needs to be coloured, I'm sure anything will do. If what you talked about was paint (we don't have a Dollar Tree in Canada :) ) then diluting and blotting the colour on with cotton swabs would work great. I'm sure anything would work fine, I just used pastels because they seemed fitting. As you can imagine, I'm all for improvising!! lol

Thanks again for understanding, sewhappysue  :D


Title: Re: Worm from Labyrinth :)
Post by: sewhappysue on July 12, 2011 07:24:41 PM
I use eye shadow powder and blusher powder, sometimes diluted paints, but I feel I have more control with the powders.

Yes yes yes! Most definitely! I hadn't really thought of eye shadow before, but I have used blush!! But what a great idea. I think that would be absolutely perfect! Definitely more control!!

Wow talk about a lovely blast from the past! Oh I may have to try amking him f or my best friend. She would just FLIP for him  :D

Well, hopefully by the end of this weekend, I'll have a photo tutorial for you all to make him!! Thanks!

Post by: lilpumpkindoll on July 18, 2011 03:15:01 PM
Can't wait to make him  :) I've found the easiest and cheapest way of creating blush is to wet the end of a coloured pencil and rub it over the area that needs colouring its really effective and gives you alot of control :)

Thank you so very much! In the fourth pic you have, where you show how to shade the eyes, my mind saw the owl Jarrod changes to. LOL With a little tweaking I do believe he would emerge! How fun! Again thank you!

You're welcome! I hope it's easy for everyone to understand!! And yes! It does look like the owl in that pic, doesn't it? lol

Just finished one with blue fur like the one from the movie, but he has a fez and a bowtie--he's a Dr Who worm! I'll be making one with a creamy brown color fur and that one will be a River Song worm. :D

Edited to add: I'll try to post a picture later!

Doctor Who Labyrinth Style Worm! (11th Doctor)


Close up of the face/fez/bowtie. You can see the brown spots on his face in this picture. You can also see the slight blue tint of the paint I used on his stomach.


Side shot. You can see the brown that is on his sides, separating his belly and his back.

River Song is next!

I am a long time scavenger for Labyrinth-inspired crafts and this is honestly by FAR my favorite! He's so well done and I can't believe how easy the pattern is to follow...MAJOR KUDOS GIRL! Seriously, he's 1000x cuter than any of the worms I've found online...crocheted or not.

It's the PERFECT Christmas present for my sister...and thanks to you I now have that! She's IMPOSSIBLE to buy for!! YAY!

I am also now inspired to create a Firey on the same level of awesome! There's also a serious lack of Ludos....

THANK YOU for sharing this!!!

Thank you for the awesome pattern and tutorial. I managed to create the worm in one day; he will make a perfect christmas present for my sister. I already told her I got her the most awesome gift ever.




I used wet chalk to add the blue shade; the pinkish shade is done with my daughters toy-make up hehe. He doesn't look as good as the original as I only had small safety eyes, but he looks amazing nonetheless and I want to thank you so much for taking the time to work up this pattern for us! It will be really hard to part with this guy.

"I said "'allo," but that's close enough. "

THANK YOU!!!

Ok this is the cutest freaking thing ever. The worm is my favorite character from The Labyrinth and I must make this. I almost died when I saw this and then I scrolled through and found the Doctor Who worm and...*head explodes*.
