Dewott Pattern

As you can see from the pictures above and the title of this post, my latest pattern is dewott, the evolved form of oshawott. When I first saw the Unova starters, my first impression of oshawott was that he looked like a sad little clown. Once he evolved, I fell in love with dewott, and had a hard time of letting him evolve.

About a week ago I was in a crocheting mood, and was quite happy to discover that I already had all the yarn needed to make him, and here he is.

Also, his scallops (according to bulbapedia they’res scalchops, according to spell check they’re scallops) are detachable like how they’re described as being. However, they’re not that sharp and probably can’t inflict that much damage.

For the yarn I used Red Heart Super Saver for all but the nose. The white whiskers is just ‘White’, black is just ‘Black’, dark blue is ‘Blue’, the lighter blue is ‘Turqua’ and the tan is ‘Aran’. I didn’t have any pink felt for the nose, so I used Caron Simply Soft ‘Persimmon’, the same yarn I used for bellossom’s petals.

This time I went off of this dewott image from bulbapedia.

I have no issues with people using my pattern, as long as they don’t make a profit off the pattern, or leafeon. Also, please don’t copy the pattern when putting it on other websites, just paste the link to the original pattern. If you have any issues with the pattern, please let me know.

Repeat steps 12-16. Alternatively, chain 15 and repeat steps 13-16, and then attach leg to body.

Finish by closing up the gap in between the legs, after stuffing the body and the legs. The body should be able to stand up on it’s own, if not, try adding more stuffing in the legs to give it some weight, or take stuffing out if it was overstuffed.

Final Assembly:

Attach head to the top of the body, arms to the body, and legs to the body as shown at the beginning of the post. Attach the spike and ears to the head as well.

With that done, attach the tail to the back as shown below. The tail goes under the shorts, so it’s important to attach it first, and I only attached it by the first row of the tail so it could still move freely.

Now it’s time for the shorts. The shorts go under the arms, and the two end should meet up in either the middle of the front of the body or the back, depending on where you want it. With that done, it’s time to attach the triangles. Start with the small end of the large triangle at the seam where you attached the two sides together. The big end of it should be close to where the legs begin. Then attach the middle triangle, then the big end of the large triangle, small end of the large triangle, middle triangle, and large end of the large triangle. The triangles should go all the way around and be rather symmetrical in their positioning.

Once that’s done, it’s time for the face. You can choose to do the whiskers and nose as I did them, or use felt. Then there’s the eyes, eyebrows, and small little frown that somehow looks super cute.

Okay, now time for the scallops, or scalchops, depending on how you view it. I used black yarn to attach the two ends to the middle, giving the impression of ridges. It took forever to get them how I wanted, and the result was they look a lot worse than they should. So attach the ends to the middle, and the bottom to the bottom of the middle.

Depending on whether or not you want to detach them, you can either completely attach them to the shorts, or just attach some string on the back so you can tie/untie them on/off and around the hands. Velcro is another option.

Below is the back of mine with the string. I realize the picture is rather bright, but it’s still better than being super dark.

And that’s it! Let me know if you have any issues with the pattern, and I hope any and all dewotts turn out well.

Oddish-Bellossom Project

My latest project comes with a story.

There once was an Oddish who was walking through the Ilex Forest.

During her walk she came across a new object. The object was round and spikey, something that the Oddish had never seen before.

Curious, the Oddish got closer to the object. It started glowing, and the Oddish felt a strange feeling come over her.

Within moments, the feeling was gone. However, the Oddish was no longer an Oddish, but was now a beautiful Bellossom (skipping over evolving into Gloom).

Okay, story time is over. If somebody would have told me a couple months ago that my first project after the eevees was going to be an Oddish, I would have laughed in their face. To me, Oddishs are the annoying little weeds that always get in my way when I’m on a mission in a Pokemon game. The only reason why I would ever capture one was to evolve it into a cute Bellossom and name it Hula.

Also, it wasn’t until I was done, did I remember that you have to first evolve Oddish into a Gloom at Level 21, BEFORE you can evolve it into a Bellossom. I forgot that little detail, because I hardly ever use Gloom in my games. Instead I capture a level 20+ Oddish, level it up and evolve it into Gloom, and then evolve it into Bellossom. The amount of time it spends as Gloom is the amount of time it takes me to go into my bag and give it a Sun Stone. So please look over that technical aspect of the design.

So, the real story is about two weeks ago I saw a photo featuring a Bellossom standing behind an Oddish, and my mind went, ‘Hey! An Oddish is only a Bellossom with the leaves up! I should make one!’

The good news is that there already are patterns available for Bellossom and Oddish. I only had to come up with a way to merge them and create leaves that would work for both. The sun stone was just extra; you don’t have to make it if you don’t want to. I just thought it would be a fun addition to complete the evolution process.

For yarn, I used the following:

Caron Simply Soft ‘Country Blue’ for Oddish’s body, Caron Simply Soft ‘Persimmon’ for the flowers, Red Heart Super Saver’s ‘Bright Yellow’ for the leaves, Red Heart Super Saver’s ‘Honeydew’ for the light green of Bellossom’s body, and Red Heart Super Saver’s ‘Paddy Green’ for the darker green of the leaves.

I have no issues with people using my pattern, as long as they don’t make a profit off the pattern, or leafeon. Also, please don’t copy the pattern when putting it on other websites, just paste the link to the original pattern.

Patterns:

The pattern for the Sun Stone can be found here.

  12. Row 18-19: sc in each sc, chain 1, turn (5)
  13. Row 20: dc over 2 sc, sc in next 3 sc, chain 1, turn (4)
  14. Row 21: sc in each sc, chain 1, turn (4)
  15. Row 22: sc in 2 sc, dc over next 2 sc, chain 1, turn (3)
  16. Row 23: sc in each sc, chain 1, turn (3)
  17. Row 24: dc over 2 sc, sc in next sc, chain 1, turn (2)
  18. Row 25: sc in each sc, chain 1, turn (2)
  19. Row 26: dc over, chain 1, turn (1)
  20. Row 27: sc in sc (1)

F/O Final Assembly: Attach Bellossom head to Bellossom body, then to Oddish body. The result should look like the Oddish-Bellossom Snowman pictured below:

Then attach Bellossom arms to the Bellossom body, and Oddish’s feet to the Oddish body. Assemble the petals of the flowers as instructed, and attach to Bellossom’s head.

Take the yellow leaves, and try to find the green leaf that most closely resemble it in size. I hot glued my leaves together, gluing everything but the small little square at the bottom. This was so I wouldn’t have to force my way through hot glue when attaching the leaves to the body. Below shows the two leaves glued together, leaving the small square bits unattached.

Or you can sew them  together. I didn’t because I was too afraid of having one color  to match on one side of the leaf, but to stand out on the other. You know should have four regular green leaves, and four leaves with yellow on one side and green on the other.Attach the leaves to the body by the square little ends. These parts should remain hidden when you have Bellossom, but seen when you have Oddish. Optional is rubber-banding the leaves curled up for a couple days to get them used to the shape.

Use felt to make the faces for Oddish and Bellossom as shown.

Overall, I like being able to go from Oddish to Bellossom. Yes, you can see bits of Bellossom while it’s Oddish, the leaves might not stand up quite all the way on their own, but it’s fun going from one form to another. I haven’t seen any other design capable of evolving from one pokemon form into another.

Eeeveelutions All Together

Now that my eeveelutions are done, I felt that some group shots were necessary.

I also think some new eeveelutions are due.  All eeveelutions relate to some type of natural element: water, ice, fire, plants, night, day, electricity, but it seems like there’s still other elements.  Air (one that can fly would be awesome), the earth or metals, that’s all I can think of at the moment, but I’m always up for more eevees, what about you?

Enough rambling, hope you enjoy the pictures.

All Together In Pokedex Order (Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Umbreon):

The Orignal Three (Generation I: Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon):

Day and Night (Generation II: Espeon, Umbreon):

Plants and Ice (Generation IV: Leafeon, Glaceon):

And Piplup hanging out with the eeveelutions:

Umbreon

Umbreon is the last eeveelution I had to do, and wasn’t that bad since I used the same base body, head, and legs for the other eeveelutions. The pattern was made by wolfdreamer and is available here: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2010/08/umbreon-plushie.html

I didn’t have any yellow felt, so I just crocheted some scs in a ring for the circles.  They could look better, but I was so excited about being finished, that I was rushing to get it done.  I also added a couple rows to the ears and tail since they looked a little short.

That’s all for now.

Glaceon Pattern

This weekend I managed to do the last of my eeveelution patterns, glaceon.  I still have umbreon to do eevelution wise, but Wolfdreamer already has an awesome pattern for him.

 

Glaceon is a bit complicated due to all the diamonds. There’s a couple pieces where you’ll end off with collar in a diamond shape, then connect with another color and continue on.  My best advice is to just go with it, even if it takes you a couple times to get it right, that’s how I got through it.

I didn’t really use a pose for glaceon, since I couldn’t find one I really liked.  But I did like the swooshy look of the tail, so I used a pipe cleaner to achieve the look.

I used RedHeart Super Saver Yarn.  The light blue color is ‘Sky Blue’, the medium blue color is ‘Blue’, and darker blue ‘Windsor Blue’.  For the eyes and ears, I used a medium blue color felt and a size G hook.

I have no issues with people using my pattern, as long as they don’t make a profit off the pattern, or piplup. Also, please don’t copy the pattern when putting it on other websites, just paste the link to the original pattern.

Pictured above is the light blue section being connected to the dark blue section of the leg.

Jolteon Pattern

It seems like when most people hear, ‘jolteon’ they think, ‘ahhhhhhhhhh, so many spikes’.  There are a lot of spikes, but they’re not that bad, and I had a lot of fun coming up with the different shapes and sizes. In the pattern, I list the sizes that I use, but feel free to mix it up and do what you want.  I recommend 12 spikes for the collar alternating between large and small spikes, but it’s completely up to you.  Also, I found that pipecleaners for the ears and tail base help.

And yes, those are eyes that you see.  My roomie was nice enough to lend me her hot glue gun, so for once the eyes are done, and I apologize for my fail cutting skills.

I also based the pose on the following pic: http://pokemon.wikia.com/wiki/Jolteon

I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn. The yellow is ‘Bright Yellow’, and white is just ‘White’. I used a G-hook, but use what you want.  Since espeon was smaller than the others, I stitched looser, hence jolteon being so big.

I have no issues with people using my pattern, as long as they don’t make a profit off the pattern, or leafeon. Also, please don’t copy the pattern when putting it on other websites, just paste the link to the original pattern.

Espeon Joins the Group

Espeon Finished:

I had one long week of school and no time to do my own patterns, but still needed a way to relax.  Since I already had the right color, Red Heart Super Saver’ ‘Orchid’, I decided it was time for espeon, since I had found a pattern which can be found here: http://shedko247.wordpress.com/2010/08/17/espeon/

I stuck to the pattern, but messed with the ears and whiskers.  For some reason my stitches have been getting tighter, so I added a couple rows and chains to make them the proper size. I also made the gem using red yarn instead of hot glue by making 5 sc in a circle. Also the eyes will get finished, eventually.

I also based on the pose on the following, because I love how espeon looks walking toward me: http://mondays-noon.deviantart.com/gallery/11242697#/d2pmtmx

Also, I apologize if the pics aren’t that great, my camera kept saying my memory card was protected despite it working fine in my computer.

Below is the latest group shot.
