Shaymin Plushie


This is a Shaymin plushie I made by request. Poor guy has been thru an awful lot. My cat took a liking (or disliking) to him and decided to chew his nose nearly off, and 'degrassed' his back pretty good too. After some serious repair work and surgery on the nose, he's back together but just a tad bit worse for his unexpected adventure.

This doll has a few different techniques involved, but for the intermediate to advanced crocheter it shouldn't present any problems.

This pattern has of yet been tested only by me, so if you find any problems, please let me know, I'll fix it as soon as possible. :)


Shaymin

Materials:

WW yarn in white, medium green, dark green and pink (rose or coral works too)
G and F hooks
Felt scraps in black, white and red
Fiberfill
Yarn Needle
(optional) latch hook tool

Notes:

This pattern is assuming you have at least moderate experience in crochet. There are various techniques used in this pattern. At least a working knowledge of Latch Hook rug work is also helpful.

Numbers in ( ) at the end of each row/round indicate the total number of stitches that should be in that round/row.

Head and Body:

Using white and G hook:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: sc in each sc around (6)
Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in each of next 4 sc, sc in last sc (10)
Rnd 4: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in each of next 2 sc, sc in last 4 sc (12)
Rnd 5: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)
Rnd 6: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 7: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (30)
Rnd 8: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (36)
Rnd 9-28: sc in each sc around (36)
Rnd 29: sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (30)
Rnd 30: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (24)

Begin stuffing at this point if you haven't already. Continue stuffing as you progress.

Rnd 31: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (18)
Rnd 32: sc in next 1 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (12)
Rnd 33: dec over next 2 sc around (6)

F/O leaving a tail. Using the back of your hook or a chopstick, add any stuffing needed to finish out the shape. Weave tail thru the final round and pull to close.


Front and Back Legs (make four) :

Using white and G hook:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in each of the last 2 sc (8)
Rnd 3: sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in each of the last 2 sc (10)
Rnd 4: sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in each of the last 2 sc (12)

F/O stuff moderately

Grass Mat:

(this piece is made in two parts, first the 'mat' which is sewn onto the back of the body. Then you will 'latch' the grass pieces onto the mat using either a crochet hook or latch hook tool.)

Using medium green and G hook:

Row 1: Ch 13 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. turn (12)
Row 2: sc in each sc across turn (12)
Row 3: 2 sc in first sc, sc each sc across to last sc, 2 sc in last sc (14)
Row 4: sc in each sc across (14)
Row 5: repeat row 3 (16)
Row 6: repeat row 2 (16)
Row 7: repeat row 3 (18)
Row 8: repeat row 2 (18)
Row 9: repeat row 3 (20)
Row 10: repeat row 2 (20)
Row 11-21: repeat row 2 (20)
Row 22: dec over next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc sc across to last 4 sc, dec over 2 sc (twice) (16)
Row 23: repeat row 22 (12)

F/O and sew to top of body centered evenly. Cut about 100 4 1/2 inch pieces of yarn of the same color as the mat. Latch hook or use crochet hook to loop the pieces around the sc stitches. I found that using two pieces at a time, and latching in every other sc, in a checkerboard pattern seemed to work the easiest. But a single piece in each stitch will work as well if that's easier for you.


Flower (make 2):

Using pink and F hook:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 3: sc first sc, ch 3 sc next 2 sc, ch 3 (repeat around to last sc, sc in last sc and sl st to top of first sc) (12 sc, 6 ch 3 loops)
Rnd 4: sc in first sc, in ch 3 loop work the following : *hdc, dc, tr, picot, tr, dc hdc ; sc in next 2 sc* repeat from * around to last sc, sc in last sc

F/O


Leaves (make 4):

Using dark green and F hook:

Row 1: ch 3, sc in 2nd ch from hook and last ch (2)
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc (4)
Row 3: 2 sc in first sc, sc next 2 sc, 2 sc last sc (6)
Row 4: 2 sc in first sc, sc next 4 sc, 2 sc last sc (8)
Row 5-8: Sc in each sc across (8)
Row 9: sc in each sc to last two sc, dec over last two sc (7)
Row 10: repeat row 9 (6)
Row 11: repeat row 9 (5)
Row 12: repeat row 9 (4)
Row 13: repeat row 9 (3)
Row 14: repeat row 9 (2)
Row 15: repeat row 9 (1)

F/O weave in tails.

Assembly:

Sew moderately stuffed legs to the bottom as shown in pictures. Add a few whip stitches with black yarn or embroidery thread for nose. Cut and sew on eyes and two very small circles as shown in pitcures for catchlights. Cut mouth shape from red felt and sew just under the nose. Sew the leaves to the edge of the flower, and then carefully sew to either side of the body (a long curved needle really comes in handy at this point)
