PSYDUCK with pattern




Well being on a bit of a Pokemon kick lately ... I made a Psyduck for the girls. (I may keep it tho, cause I'm quite fond of Psyduck).

I wrote the pattern down as I made it, and I hope there are no omissions or mistakes in it. If anything is wrong, please let me know, I'll correct it as quickly as possible :) The picture doesn't really do it justice, I simply couldn't get the right light, but maybe I'll try again another time and get a better picture.


PSYDUCK

Materials:
WW yarn Gold and light yellow
(I used RedHeart SS in Gold and Cornmeal)
Small amounts of white and brown WW yarn
F hook
Fiberfill
Yarn Needle

NOTES:

Gauge isn't really important as long as the stitches are moderately tight so that the fiberfill won't show through.

I tend to prefer to join my rounds, but if you prefer to use continuous rounds with stitch markers, that's fine. Whichever is most comfortable for you. I also recommend using the 'invisible' decrease stitch (make decrease stitches in the front loops only, instead of going thru both loops of the stitch. They aren't *completely* invisible, but they do reduce the gaps a great deal especially in 3D pieces.

The numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row, are how many total stitches should be in that round/row.

F/O Flatten tail. Tail is not stuffed.

ASSEMBLY:

I highly recommend pinning all the pieces in place before sewing them on, this will help get everything like you want it before it's permanent.

Moderately stuff the arms (including leaving some available for the 'shoulder'.) Place arms as shown. Tilt head slightly to one side and 'tack' the hands to the sides of the head leaving the fingers free. Sew on beak and eyes as shown. Sew feet either on bottom of front for sitting position, or underneath for standing position. Sew tail to bottom on back.

For his 'hair', with brown, ch 8 sl st in second ch from hook and each ch across, ch 9 sl st in second ch from hook and each ch to end, ch 8 sl st second ch from and each to end, F/O tie the two ends together. Attach to top of head a little to the back of center.


If anything is confusing or not right, please let me know I will correct it.
