Sunkern Plushie






August 20, 2009


Sunkern is one of the lesser known pokemon, but he's cute none-the-less. He was also quite fun to make, and didn't really take a very long time either.


Sunkern


Materials:

WW yarn in yellow and a nice leaf green
G Hook
Felt pieces in black, white and brown
Yarn needle
Sewing needle and thread to match felts
Fiberfill
One chenille stem (pipe cleaner) 12 inches long

Notes:

Gauge doesn't really matter in this pattern, as long as your choice of yarn and hook size result in a fairly tight stitch so that stuffing wont show through.

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


BODY:
Using Yellow and G hook:

Rnd 1: 8 sc in Magic Ring (8)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16)
Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (32)
Rnd 5: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (40)
Rnd 6: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (48)
Rnd 7-20: Sc in each sc around (48)
Rnd 21: sc next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (40)
Rnd 22-23: sc in each sc around (40)
Rnd 24: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (32)
Rnd 25: *Ch 6, sl st in 2nd chain from hook, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, tr in last ch. Skip 3 sc, sl st in next sc* repeat * to * 7 more times (8 points)

F/0 and stuff firmly while shaping.

TOP:

Using yellow:

Rnd 1: 8 sc in Magic Ring (8)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16)
Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (32)

F/O leaving tail for sewing. Make sure that body is firmly stuff and shaped as desired, place top piece over the opening of the body and sew to body at rnd 24 (leaving the points free as shown in the pictures)


STEM:

Using green:

Row 1:Ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. (12)
Row 2 and 3: sc in each sc across (12)

F/0 leaving tail for sewing.

Fold chenille stem in half and twist tightly, fold in half again and twist tightly again. Fold crochet stem piece in half lengthwise and sew neatly over the folded chenille stem. Then sew stem to very center of top piece as shown.


LEAVES:

Make 2 using Green:

Row 1: ch 2, sc in 2nd ch from hook. (1)
Row 2: 2 sc in sc (2)
Row 3: 2 sc in each sc (4)
Row 4: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in last sc (6)
Row 5: sc in each sc across (6)
Row 6: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in last sc (8)
Row 7-9: sc in each sc across (8)
Row 10: dec over first 2 sc, sc in remaining sc across (7)

Repeat row 10 until 1 sc remains. F/O Leaving long tail. With yarn needle, weave the tail down the center of the leaf to create a 'vein'... sew each leaf to the stem securely as shown.

Cut three one inch wide strips of felt in brown. On one end cut two notches to resemble the pieces as shown in the picture, on the other end, cut to a slightly rounded point. Check that the length will be right with the body. The strips are placed with one in the center, and the two side strips are crossed over at the very bottom, (see pictures above) I recommend pinning all three strips on the body before sewing. Once satisfied with the placement, sew on securely using matching sewing thread.

Cut 2 one inch circles from black, position them as shown and pin. Embroider mouth as shown centered above the middle strip. Sew on the black circles for eyes, add two very tiny circles of white felt as 'catch lights' in the eyes (see pictures).

If necessary, adjust the size of the strips and eyes to best fit your Sunkern. Since everyone's gauge can be different, be sure that you have the strips the right size before sewing them to the body.
