Luma Plushie



Yay! More mario plushies! LOL.. well I had to make Luma. I've had dozens of requests for it, and it's a fairly simple pattern to design, and I needed easy. Working on my current commission project is draining my last ounce of patience, so this was a welcome break :D

Luma can be made in just about any color you want... so have a blast. lol

As always, if you find anything wrong with the pattern, or just need to ask a question, please feel free to comment or send me an email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can :)


Luma

Materials:

ww yarn yellow
G hook
fiberfill
small amount of black and white felt
yarn needle

Notes:

Gauge isn't important as long as your yarn and hook choice results in a tight stitch so that the stuffing material doesn't show through.

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


BODY:

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 7-12: sc in each sc around (48)
Rnd 13: sc in next 6 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (42)
Rnd 14-16: sc in each sc around (42)
Rnd 17: sc in next 5 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (36)
Rnd 18-19: sc in each sc around (36)
Rnd 20: sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (30)
Rnd 21-22: sc in each sc around (30)
Rnd 23: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (24)
Rnd 24-25: sc in each sc around (24)
Rnd 26: sc in next 8 sc, *dec over next 2 sc* repeat * to * 3 more times, sc in each of last 8 sc (20)
Begin stuffing here, continue stuffing as you progress. Be sure to stuff rather firmly and shape as you stuff.
Rnd 27: sc in next 6 sc, *dec over next 2 sc* repeat * to * 3 more times, sc in each of last 6 sc (16)
Rnd 28: sc in next 4 sc, *dec over next 2 sc* repeat * to * 3 more times, sc in each of last 4 sc (12)
Rnd 29: sc in next 2 sc, *dec over next 2 sc* repeat * to * 3 more times, sc in each of last 2 sc (8)
Rnd 30-31: sc in each sc around (8)
Rnd 32: dec over next 2 sc around (4)

F/O. Stuff the last few rows VERY lightly, just enough to help it hold it's shape. Weave yarn through the last round and pull to close. Secure and weave in end.


ARMS:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in Magic Ring (6)
Rnd 2: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc (8)
Rnd 3: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc (10)
Rnd 4: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc (12)
Rnd 5: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc (14)
Rnd 6: sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc (16)

F/O. Stuff lightly to give some dimension, but don't overstuff (you want to keep that semi-triangular shape)


LEGS:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in Magic Ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in last sc (8)
Rnd 3: 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in last sc (10)
Rnd 4: 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in last sc (12)
Rnd 5: 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in last sc (14)

F/O. Stuff to shape. Legs should be stuffed relatively firm.


ASSEMBLY: Sew the legs to the bottom as shown (longer side facing 'out'). Sew arms to sides in line with legs as shown.

I recommend cutting eye shapes from paper before cutting out felt pieces. This lets you get the size and shape you want just right before cutting the felt. Sew eyes in place as shown and add two very small circles of white felt as 'catch lights' to the eyes.
