Tamagetake Plushie + pattern by zaphod-beeblebroxie Tamagetake Plushie + pattern by zaphod-beeblebroxie
Wow, there's totally an anigurumi category now! Awesome!

WARNING: Long ass description, which you can ignore most of.

So, anyway, this is the first (well, technically second) pokemon plushie I made myself, pattern and all. AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE PATTERN FOR FREE! :iconimhappyplz:

This is tamegatake, one of the generation five pokemans. I dunno it's english name. aka, Foongus. I thought it looked cute and simple so I made one. Here is the pattern:

If you have no idea what I'm talking about or want to learn to crochet, I recommend going to [link] or [link]

If you find any mistakes or something doesn't work, feel free to ask me what the hell I was thinking.

HOKAY LETS DO THIS!

Stuff you need:

Red, black, pink and cream yarn
Fiberfill
Scraps of black felt
Some sort of needle for putting it together (I use a big embroidery needle)
Some stiff cardboard


Notes:

Gauge isn't very important for this project, as long as you don't have gaping holes.

This is a fairly simple plushie, using some basic techniques. The hardest part is the top of the mushroom cap where you change colours halfway through each round. For this I recommend cutting off the yarn each time you change colours, otherwise you'll get a mess of criss-crossing string in the middle and it's a real hassle trying to get the strings to be the right tension etc, etc. So just cut the yarn at each colour change. Also, where I say to change colour is only approximate. If it's not lining up exactly, change colour somewhere where it will line up exactly.

Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round indicate how many stitches should be in that round.

I would recommend that you join your rounds when crocheting the mushroom cap of the plushie instead of using the 'continuous' rounds method commonly used in amigurumi. While I prefer continuous rounds myself, you really do need to use joined rounds or the red/white split will be all over the place. Also, try using the 'invisible' decrease. It's more invisible than the usual kind.

YOU WILL NEED TO WEIGHT THIS SOMEHOW. Otherwise the cap will just knock it over all the time. I filled a scrap of cloth with rice and sewed it shut for my weight.

Abbreviations!: Rnd = round, sc = single crochet, dec = decrease, st = stitch


Body: (in cream yarn)
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic circle (If you're unfamilar with the magic circle... uh... look at one of those sites I linked up there, magic circle and alternatives are explained somewhere there) (6)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)

Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)

Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)

Rnd 5: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (30)

Rnd 6: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (36)

Rnd 7-11: sc in each sc around (36)

Rnd 12: sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (30)

Rnd 13: sc in each sc around (30)

Rnd 14: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (24)

Rnd 15-16: sc in each sc around (24)

Rnd 17: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (18)

Rnd 18-19: sc in each sc around (18)

Fasten off, stuff the body and secure the magic circle (if you used it), leaving the top open.

Mushroom cap (top): (start with cream)
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic circle (6)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)

Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)

Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24) change to black.

Rnd 5: sc in each sc around (24)

Rnd 6: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (30) change to cream

Rnd 7: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around, changing to red at st 19 (36) change to cream

Rnd 8: sc in each sc around, changing to red at st 19 (36) change to cream

Rnd 9: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc around, changing to red at st 22 (42) change to cream

Rnd 10: sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc around, changing to red at st 25 (48) change to cream

Rnd 11: sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc around, changing to red at st 28 (54) change to cream

Rnd 12: sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc around, changing to red at st 31 (60) change to cream

Rnd 13: sc in next 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc around, changing to red at st 34 (66) change to cream

Rnd 14: sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in next sc around, changing to red at st 37 (72) change to BLACK

Rnd 15-16: sc in each sc around (72)

Fasten off and secure the magic circle.

Mushroom cap (bottom): in cream
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)

Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)

Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)

Rnd 5: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (30)

Rnd 6: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (36)

Rnd 7: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (42)

Rnd 8: sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (48)

Rnd 9: sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (54)

Rnd 10: sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (60)

Rnd 11: sc in next 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (66)

Rnd 12: sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (72)

Fasten off and secure the magic circle. Sew the top and bottom cap pieces together to about halfway. Now, get a circle of cardboard roughly the size of the mushroom cap and put it in the bottom. This will give the cap shape and stop the bottom from bulging out. It might help to have a hole in the middle of the cardboard where the body goes, but I did mine without a hole and it's fine. Keep sewing the top and bottom together, leaving a gap for stuffing. Stuff and close. Now the hardest part is done :D

Arms (make 2): in cream
Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic circle (4)

Rnd 2: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (6)

Rnd 3-5: sc in each sc around (6)

Nose: in pink
Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic circle (4)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (8)

Rnd 3-4: sc in each sc around (8)

Putting it all together:

Sew the arms and nose to the body. Sew the body to the middle of the cap.

Use small ovals of black felt for eyes. Use strips of black felt to cover where you changed colour on the cap and to give it that pokeball look.

AND YOU'RE DONE! DONE DONE DONE! Yay!

About how tall will this guy end up?
Cause Foongus is only 8 inches tall, and I totally want to make a 1:1 scale plush. XD

Mine is about 7 inches tall. It wouldn't be hard to make it bigger though.
