Pattern: Chubbachu Amigurumi

A 5″ tall amigurumi of a chubby Pikachu.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Fat Pikachu is best Pikachu.

Making this was a new experience for me. I don’t tend to go beyond 48 stitches around when doing amigurumi because I prefer them small, but I decided I would try something different. I planned how big I wanted it, made a little schematic, and stuck to it. I do like how it turned out, and planning out my amigurumi in advance instead of just winging it made my life a hell of a lot easier. Definitely going to stick to that.

I also made new graphics for my Etsy shop and this is the first  thing to make use of them. Now I just have to take pictures of everything again so it matches the new style. D:
Perfectionism is a disease.

Free Pattern Friday: Poké Ball Amigurumi

pokeAll

A 2.5″ amigurumi of a Poké Ball.

I have pretty much nothing to say about this other than I could’ve sworn that I uploaded a Poké Ball pattern years ago (oh my god I’ve been doing this for years), but apparently not. My plan for this is to make all of the balls and sell the patterns in one big set, but knowing me the odds of that happening are practically zero.

One day I’ll upload something that isn’t FPF. I spent all day yesterday working on graphics for my Etsy shop and now my obsessive perfectionism wants me to retake pictures of everything. So I’m dealing with that.

Free Pattern Friday: Ice Cream Monster Amigurumi

iceAll
A 4″ tall amigurumi of an ice cream monster dude.

What is this, the third FPF in a row? It’s almost like I’m not lazy.

If you follow me on my rarely-used Tumblr you may have seen something like this a while ago. I came up with an idea for a silly little creature (maybe a form of octopus?) that looks like ice cream and wears a cone as a hat. I made like 5 different flavors, but then came the Great Scrappening and many yarn lives were lost. This one was whipped up earlier today (yay procrastination).

Free Pattern Friday: Pyukumuku Amigurumi

mukuAll

A 2″ tall, 3″ long amigurumi of the Pokemon Pyukumuku.

So it’s yesterday afternoon and I don’t have any free patterns ready so I looked through all the Pokemon and picked one that would work up fast and here we are. Not super happy with it but that’s what I get for trying to quickly whip up something. Took about 2 hours maybe(?), but I spent way more time than necessary trying to figure out the eyes and mouth…thing. I remembered I had some embroidery floss from my brief stint of cross-stitching so I slapped that on there. Not sure if I like it enough to use in future pieces but we’ll see.

Pattern: Blobfish Amigurumi

A 2” tall, 5” long amigurumi of a blobfish.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

So a couple of weeks ago I randomly remembered that this creature exists and decided to crochet it. This was the first time in a while I played with weird body shapes and I think it turned out pretty good. Pretty blobby.

Apologies for no Free Pattern Friday last week, but very bad things happened on Thurday. Veeeery bad things. Bad things on top of  bad things. Ol’ blobby’s face here pretty much sums it up. But at least I’ve been super motivated to crochet lately so I have a bunch of patterns ready to be typed up. Might be a free one this week but I just frogged what I was working on because perfectionism is a crippling disease. Off to think of something quick and simple to make.
