Why hello there! I'm new to Craftster so everything seems so new and shiny. I have a pattern that I designed for a Zoidberg from Futurama, and you're in luck because I just so happen to feel like sharing it!

I made him for me since I'm a big nerd. I then had to make a blue one (and improve on the design) for my sister, who subsequently decided she wanted to order a red one as well. For those of you who are confused as to why there is a blue Zoidberg there is a parallel universe episode. Enough said!

Here's the pattern for the design of the blue one (better face tentacles). This is my first pattern so I'm sorry if something is wrong. I have contact info through my blog so feel free to ask me any questions.

Pattern Attempt for ZOIDBERG

Cheat sheet: sc (single crochet), dec (decrease), inc (increase), sl st (slip stitch),

Row 1 Make a magic circle with 6 sc in the center. Pull tight.
Row 2 increase to 12 stitches
Row 3 sc 2, inc, sc 2, inc, repeat until end of row (use a stitch marker for working in the round)
Row 4 sc 3, inc, sc 3, inc, repeat until end of row.
Row 5 sc 4, inc, sc 10, inc, sc 4
Row 6 sc in each stitch for the row (one = row)
Row 7 sc 4, dec, sc 10, dec, sc 4
Row 8 sc 3, dec, sc 3,
Face tentacles: chain 4, sl st into second chain and continue back to row. Repeat 3 more times.
Row 8 continued sc 3, dec, until end of row.
Row 9, repeat row 8 without the face tentacles.

Inc, sc, inc, sc, repeat for one row
Sc 4, inc, repeat for one row.
One = row
Sc 4, inc, sc 4, inc, repeat for one row.
Two = rows
Sc 6, inc, sc 6, inc repeat for one row
Two = rows
Sc 10, dec, sc 10, dec, for two rows
Two = rows
Begin to stuff
Sc 6, dec, sc 6, dec, repeat for 2 rows.
Sc 2, dec, sc 2, dec repeat for 1 row.
Finish stuffing
Continue to decrease(throw in a regular stitch if needed now and then) until closed.

Legs (x2)
Redo row 1 and 2 from the head instructions.
Ch 4 and make two toes just like the face tentacles were made.
Choosing the inner portion of the stitches from row 2, sc in the round for approximately 7 rounds, or until a little over an inch tall. No stuffing necessary. Attach to body. Make the other leg. Attach to body.

Arms (x2)
Ch 6. Attach the 6th stitch to the 1st and crochet around to form a tube.
Make tube about 1.5 inches long. Ch 4 and make 1 tentacle (for his claw) sc 2 in the tube. Ch 4 and make the second claw. Dec across tube to close. No stuffing necessary. Attach to body. Make second arm. Attach to body.

Eyes and clothing
Cut out felt for the eyes and clothing. Embroider pupils onto the eyes.
For the clothing cut out pant shapes and shirt shapes. Sew edges and dress him! Embroider little circles onto his jacket. Heres hoping the rest can be figured out by looking at my pictures.

Very cool!  I'm a big Futurama fan and I've recently started making amigurumis, so I am definitely going to try your pattern.  It looks like the best one I've seen so far Smiley

Zoidbergggg <3 had to be one of my fav characters. Can't wait to make this, my boyfriend is making me make him bender for our 2 year aniversary.  I found a pattern but I altered it a lot. Now I can have a Zoidberg to match YAY Cheesy
