PACHIRISU with pattern



This guy has been hard to get good pictures of because of his colors, and this is the best I can do for right now. Pachirisu is my middle daughter's very favorite pokemon, so I made this for her.
I hope you can see the details well enough.

This third pic was just purely for fun. It seems that Pachirisu is something of a camera hound, and decided to ham it up just a little for us. :)




The pattern is below, as always, if you find anything missing or wrong in the pattern, please let me know and I will fix it promptly :)

PACHIRISU

MATERIALS:
WW yarn in white and a medium blue
G Hook
Fiberfill
Yarn needle
Scraps of felt in black, red and yellow (or orange)
sewing threads to match the colors

NOTES:

I tend to prefer to join my rounds, but if you prefer continuous rounds and using stitch markers, that's just as good. Whatever is most comfortable for you.

Gauge isn't an issue, just make sure that your hook, yarn and tensions result in a fairly tight stitch, to prevent the stuffing from showing through.

I also recommend using the 'invisible decrease' when making 3D pieces like this. It's done by making the decrease stitch in the Front Loops Only of the two sc. While the stitch isn't completely invisible, it does create a much neater looking piece with few to no 'gaps' where the decrease stitches are made.

Number in ( ) at the end of each round or row, are the total number of stitches in that round or row.


HEAD:

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 15: sc in next 5 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (36)

Begin stuffing about this point if you haven't done so already.

Rnd 17: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (24)

ASSEMBLY:

I strongly recommend pinning all pieces together before you begin sewing them whenever possible. This allows you to make fine adjustments to the placement, and when you're happy with everything, then you can sew it together.

Sew Head to neck part of Body firmly. Sew ears on top of head as shown in pictures, with points facing forward. Lightly stuff and sew arms to front of body as shown, and sew feet to underside of body roughly even with the ears. Sew head stripe to head, begin point just below the ear points, and continue down the back.

Stuff tail moderately firm. Tail should be relatively flat, like a squirrel tail. Sew stripe to TOP of tail (the shorter side, without the cape) starting with point tip at the 1st round and sewing down the center of the top of tail. Match the stripes on tail and body back, and ensure cape is well under the bottom side, adjust the tail to angle you like. As you sew around the cape portion of the tail, add a bit more stuffing to fill it out and finalize the shape of the tail. Sew on the three points at the end of the tail (you probably will need to fuss around with the tail at this point and convince it to curl a bit on the very end) Sew the taller of the three points in between the other two.

Cut out face pieces from felt as shown (two eyes in black, two circles for 'electric pouches' on the cheeks, a mouth and small white piece for it's cute little buck teeth up front. Sew or glue pieces to face shown. Using small amount of black sewing thread, make several tiny whip stitches just above the mouth centered between the eyes. I used two tiny pearls and glued them to the eyes in the 10 o'clock position for 'catch lights' in the eyes.
