Yes, I plan on making Sylveon

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I haven’t stopped crocheting, I just don’t have as much time as I used to. I may not be updating as frequently, but I have been trying to respond to comments and questions on here as fast as I can.

While I don’t miss the tests and homework from college, I do miss all the time I had in between classes to crochet. The crocheting I have been doing are little things for family/friends and had pre-existing patterns. Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 also took up about a month of free time. I never realized how awesome Riolu could be until I caught one very early in the game, and was one of my main three with Tepig and Umbreon.

For those who haven’t heard, this October Nintendo will be releasing a new generation for the 3DS with Pokemon X and Y. In addition, except for a few countries, it will be released worldwide at the same time. Also announced was a new eeveelution: Sylveon. So far, not much has been revealed, just the height, weight, and a few pictures.

I was recently asked if I would do a Sylveon pattern. Ever since I heard of the new eeveelution, I’ve been planning on making a pattern, but have just been waiting on Nintendo to release more information such as the type (fingers crossed for a flying type) and some more pictures before I start.

I have other projects planned as well, they’re just not far enough long at this point to be mentioned.

Here’s hoping that Nintendo will release more information soon, and the game will be as awesome as it looks so far.

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.

Attach the legs and tail to the body how you want. Center the diamonds on the head, with the left and right under the center one, making sure to attach the ear flaps under the diamonds before permantly attaching them.  Attach ears on head as shown.  Attach big diamond on back of the body as shown, and attach small diamond to body and head as shown.  Make sure to attach head to body in addition to the diamond. Add eyes and inner ears with felt.

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.

Flareon Pattern

UPDATED 7/28/2012: Apparently there was an issue with the pattern for the collar, and I have corrected the pattern. If there are any more issues, please let me know, so I can correct them, instead of having inaccurate patterns posted.

Finished Picture with eyes:

Compared to leafeon, flareon is super easy since he has less extra stuff.  Granted the collar was a super pain, but once I got that done, the rest was easy.

I based flareon’s pose on the following picture: http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/d/dd/136Flareon.png

The base body is the same that I’ve used for the other two, wolfdreamer’s umbreon which can be found here: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2010/08/umbreon-plushie.html

The tail, ears, collar, and poofy head thing are all mine though. Of those, the collar was the hardest to do since it’s suppose to be super puffy, and the head isn’t centered. But after a week of trying different things, I finally figured it out, which is why the collar gets it’s own photo. Still not completely happy with it, but it’ll do. Make sure not to over stuff the collar, otherwise it’ll look like a life jacket.

 

I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn, and the same yellow I used for vaporeon’s ears and leafeon’s body, ‘Pale Yellow’.  The orange is called ‘Carrot’ which is much better than the cheeto orange I started with.  I used an H-hook, but only because I’ve misplaced my favorite G-hook, so use whatever you want.

I also used pipe cleaners for the ears to keep them stiff.

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.

Assembly:

Body:

Attach legs to body as shown in the pose, or however you want.  Then attach the tail to the back, flattening it slightly.

Head:

Tug on poof to give it an oval shape.  I also weaved the yellow yarn in and out to pull the gaps together and so the fluff won’t show. Then attach ears on either side of the head. Put head in collar, making sure the center is lined up, and the head can be seen from the bottom.  Attach collar to head, then the head to the body.

Other:

Like leafeon, just because I haven’t completed the face, doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about it.  Final pictures will be posted once done, but here’s what I plan on doing:

Cut 2 large almond shaped pieces of black felt.  Place on top, small circle sized pieces of white felt. Start with large pieces and gradually make them small enough till they look the correct size on the face.  I plan on starting with about 1” diameter.

The head already has the nose shape crocheted in, and flareon doesn’t show a mouth.  Then using the same black that was used for the eyes, cut out diamond shapes for the inner ears. The diamonds should be bigger than leafeon’s.

I tried to make the pattern as clear as possible, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask.  I would also appreciate any feedback on the pattern, just so I know it works fine for others besides myself.

Have fun with flareon!
