The newest addition to my amigirumi family.....

She's the first in a series of them. Next up will probably be the chicken legs version  Cheesy

This is the picture I was working too....

I'm happy with the overall look of her but i wish the arms could have been more pointed on the ends and cone like. Any ideas how I can achieve this? I used a 4mm hook....defo think I will use a 3mm next time

omgosh, i love ponyo! the chicken legs version has gotta be my favorite. as for more cone-shaped arms, maybe you can decrease it more gradually (so start decreasing right after the first round of an arm) by 1/4 of the stitches every time?

That is wonderful. The whole time I was watching the movie, I kept getting sidetracked thinking about how I would crochet her! I think yours turned out great.

I'd agree with the previous poster, do a very gradual decrease to get a more cone-like shape. Also, if you repeat the same number of stitches in the first two rows it will come out pointier.

Thanks for sharing, she's adorable! I really like how you did the hair!

I've started my own crochet blog, have a look...http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

I knew exactly who this was when I saw it on the first page. I love the little goldfish version of her and the chicken feet version too.

Her face is really cute. How long did it take to make? I have no patience for knitting or crocheting so I'm always amazed at what people can make.

Thank you for the lovely comments  Kiss

The hair probably took the longest to do...I was trying to figure out the best way of doing it and ended up doing a dc rectangle for the back and a sc circle for the top then chain and sc'ing back on lots of little bits to make the tufts Smiley

Overall she probably only took about 3 hours? I made a Link from Zelda before so I just used the same pattern that I came up for that (minus the legs etc).

Anyone know how I can make the chicken legs? I was thinking about using yellow pipecleaners but would rather keep it all crochet  Huh If I just chain them they would be too floppy  Undecided

Very cute!  I love Ponyo, especially in goldfish form Wink

If you did a small tube, like a 4 stitch round with many rounds, and then put doubled pipe-cleaners in the middle as part of the stuffing, it should work for chicken legs.
