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.

Pattern: Incineroar Amigurumi

A 4″ tall amigurumi of the Pokemon Incineroar.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

This is more or less just me transferring this pattern over to my new blog. But I did make some changes and I took new pictures so that’s as good of a reason as any to post a comparison pic.

Changes:
– Added a row to the eyebrows
– Removed a row from the tail
– Only one crochet hook size needed, because it wasn’t necessary to have two different ones in the first place
– Used slightly different colors for the eyes and body

That’s it. Nothin’ special. Enjoy the novelty of me posting two things in one day. 😛

Pattern: Mister Fox Amigurumi

A 4.5″ tall amigurumi of a cute little foxy guy.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Hi, so I died again. Sorry ’bout that. But the good news is I finally have my crocheting life (pretty much) sorted, and by that I mean I have now decided I will only* use Stylecraft Special DK yarn for my amigurumi. There, done, decision final. You have no idea how much it has been agonizing me to keep using a whole bunch of different types of yarn with different sizes, quality, colors, etc. So my raging perfectionism has led me to Stylecraft and I freaking love it why haven’t I been using this the whole time the past 5 years have been pointless without you in my life. Any who, I’ve sold all my yarn that’s not near DK/sport** size and once I use up the rest of it (which is still 2 big bins of yarn but whatever) I will switch over to my new love.

*Unless I need a color they don’t have
** Seriously I will never understand yarn sizes. I have sport weight yarn that is pretty much the exact same size as the DK weight. Why are they different? I dunno, maybe I’m just stupid.

Onto what you actually care about. Here’s a brand new pattern, a fox that I have dubbed Mister Fox because I can’t think of any name for it besides “fox” and that’s super bland. So I added a generic word. I am very creative. Anyway, I would promise that I absolutely have more patterns that are going to be posted very soon, but every time I say that I don’t do anything for 4 months so I’m not going to say it.

Happy crocheting and all that jazz.

Pattern: Red Panda Amigurumi

A 5″ tall amigurumi of a red panda.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Let me just point out the fact that yes, I know it’s stupid to choose to revamp old patterns over making new ones, but I’m not feeling creative enough to make new stuff and all the old stuff is just sitting there looking all stupid and ugly.

Anyway, this one is not too much of a difference, mainly just getting rid of the felt face. Because felt is evil. Let’s compare:

Changes:
– Replaced the felt mask with yarn
– Used dark grey yarn for the nose instead of crochet thread
– Shortened the arms
– Slightly adjusted the ear pattern
– Used different, less janky orange yarn

I am now going to continue not making new patterns and instead use this pattern with grey yarn to create a ring-tailed lemur. I’m a horrible person.

I’ve also updated the Yoshi pattern and it looks super cute now so that may be up sometime in the future. I do actually have a couple new patterns but I have to make them again because I sold the originals before taking pictures. :\
(Reminder, you can find all my old patterns on my old blog)
I’m debating whether I want to put one of the new patterns up for sale or if I should put it up for Free Pattern Friday. So possible FPF this week? Your guess is as good as mine.

 

Pattern: Popplio Amigurumi

A 4″ tall amigurumi of the Pokemon Popplio.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

So this pattern sucked. I mean, not the pattern itself, but the execution was terrible. Just look at that thing (or don’t; spare your eyes). Besides the horrible lighting it’s just so….bad. I made it a point when practicing my new style to redo this so I could put the pattern back on my Etsy shop because I took it down due to it being ABSOLUTELY HIDEOUS.

Ahhh, much better!

Changes:
– Removed the godawful felt eyes (I’m making it a point to exclusively use yarn in my amigurumi now, no felt allowed)
– Made new eye pattern
– Simplified/ tweaked most of the body parts
– Replaced black yarn with dark grey yarn

The changes to the actual pattern were minor; mostly just shrinking some things a bit. The old one measured 6″ tall, while the new one measures just over 4″ tall. Again, this is because I’ve switched from using worsted weight yarn with an E hook to sport weight yarn with a C hook.

I’ve started on fixing up Rowlet, which isn’t too bad, but I don’t have the energy yet to tackle Litten. It’s just disgusting. I don’t know what I was thinking.

Pattern: Maneki-Neko Amigurumi

A 4″ tall amigurumi of a maneki-neko or beckoning cat.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

I don’t really know what to say because I already made a post for this pattern on my old blog, but that’s going to be irrelevant soon so here’s a brief summary:

I realized I’ve been crocheting kinda wrong (more details on that later) and I recently switched from using worsted weight yarn with an E hook to sport weight yarn with a C hook. In order to practice with my new style I decided to go back and redo some of my older patterns that I’m less than happy with. This is the first pattern I’ve uploaded made with these new adaptations. The old version measured 5.5″ tall while this one measures 4″ tall.

Here’s a comparison pic:
