Torchic Plushie



Well Torchic is finished. I can't begin to tell you how many requests I've had for this one. :)

The pictures are a little bright, but I'm at the mercy of the Texas summer sun and I've yet to find the dimmer switch on that sucker LOL. I wish I could, the heat and drought are about to really put the whammy on all my plants (the jasmines in the background were drooping terribly when I took those pictures today)

Anyway, pattern is here... I still don't have a pattern tester, so if you find anything wrong or have any questions, just let me know and I'll get back as soon as I can :)


Torchic

Materials:

WW yarn in organge and gold (I used RedHeart SS in Pumpkin and Gold)
F Hook
Fiberfill
Yarn needle
Small amounts of black and white felt for eyes

Notes:

Gauge isn't important, as long as your hook and yarn choices result in a fairly tight stitch so that the fiberfill won't poke through.

The numbers at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches that should be in each round/row.

Rnd 8: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (8)
Rnd 9: sc in each sc around (8)

Arranging the flame bases with the large piece in the middle and the two smaller pieces on each side, sew together at the bottom of the pieces. Draw tighter until they resemble the picture. Fasten well. (some additional tacking may be necessary further up the pieces to get the look desired) You may want to *lightly* stuff the base pieces, I didn't, but it may work better for you)

FLAME ACCENT:

Using orange, make 2:

Row 1: Ch 4. Sc in in 2nd ch from hook, and each ch across (do not chain 1, turn) (3)
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc across (turn) (6)
Row 3: Ch 4. Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc next ch, hdc in last ch. Sk 1 sc in row 2, sl st in next sc. Ch 4. Repeat sequence for total of three 'spikes' for flame accent.

F/O

Placing the accent piece in the center of the front as shown in the pictures, sew to the base flames.


WING/FEATHERS:

Using Gold, make 4:

Row 1: Ch 4. sc in 2nd ch from hook and each remaining ch across. turn (3)
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc across. turn (6)
Row 3: 2 sc in each sc across. turn (12)
Row 4: Ch 4. Sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch. Sk 2 sc in row 3, sl st in next sc of row 3. Repeat sequence to end for total of 4 points.

F/O.

Tack the 4 'wings' to the body at the neck opening as shown in pictures. There should be a gap/opening at the front of the body. Overlapping is perfectly fine, it creates the 'ruffling' effect.


FINAL ASSEMBLY:

I highly recommend first pinning all the pieces together to ensure you have them where you want before sewing together. Begin by sewing the head to the body matching up the neck openings and keeping the wing/feathers as you tacked them down. Add feet to the bottom as shown, leaving the front 'toes' and the back 'claw' loose. Sew tail to back side centered between the feet. Sew beak to head as shown in the picture centering it to the 'gap' of the feathers in the front. Add the flame headdress to the top center of the head, sewing it firmly in place as shown.

Cut two oval shapes from black felt for eyes and sew/glue them in place as shown. Add two tiny circles of white felt to the eyes for 'catch lights' as shown.
