Natu Plushie


Natu is a cute pokemon,  he has these big eyes like a night-hawk that were very hard to get right lol.  I tried to make the wings all crochet,  but it just wouldn't work at this size,  I would have to make him much bigger to get that to work,  so his wing details are felt strips instead.

As always,  if you have any troubles with him,  or find anything wrong in the pattern,  let me know :)

MATERIALS:

WW yarn in green, yellow, light red
G Hook
Scraps of felt in white and black
Fiberfill

NOTES:

Gauge isn't important,  just ensure that your hook and yarn sizes result in a fairly tight stitch that won't allow the fiberfil to show thru.

Numbers at the end of rounds/rows indicate the total number of stitches that should be in the round/row.

BODY:  Using green:

Rnd 1:  7 sc in magic ring  (7)
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around  (14)
Rnd 3:  sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around  (21)
Rnd 4:  sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around  (28)
Rnd 5:  sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around  (35)
Rnd 6:  sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around  (42)
Rnd 7:  sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc around  (49)
Rnd 8-14:  sc in each sc around  (49)
Rnd 15:  sc in next 5 sc, dec over next 2 sc around  (42)
Rnd 16:  sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around  (35)
Rnd 17:  sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around  (28)

Being stuffing at this point and continue as you go along.

Rnd 18:  sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around  (21)
Rnd 19:  sc in next sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (14)
Rnd 20:  dec over next 2 sc around  (7)

F/O leaving a tail and then using chopstick or back of crochet hook,  finish adding any stuffing you need and shape to a ball.  Weave in the tail and pull to close.

WINGS:

Begin with yellow:

Rnd 1:  8 sc in magic ring  (9)
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around  (18)

Rnd 6-11:  sc in each sc around
Rnd 12:  sc in next sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (9)

Cut six strips of black felt  approx 1/4 inch wide and 5 inches long.   Using photos as a guide,  glue/sew the strips of felt to the wings as shown.

ASSEMBLY:

Using photos as reference assistance for placing parts...  crest is sewn to head just slightly back from center.  Legs are sewn to body at bottom.  Wings are sewn to sides as shown.  Tail is sewn to lower center of back.  Sew 2 of the tail pieces next  to each other,  then one piece centered over the two.  Beak is sewn to face as shown.

Eyes are made as shown,  by cutting an almond shape from white felt and circles from black.  (Use paper first and pin the paper to the doll's face to make sure you get the size of eye shape you want).   Once eyes are sewn or glued to face as desired,  cut two very small circles of white felt and glue/sew to eyes as shown for catch lights.

Finally,  cut four elongated triangles from white felt and sew to the 'toes' for talons.

I have a question on the crest.

"Rnd 11: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc, sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc"

This only equals 7 stitches... is the second "sc in next sc" supposed to be "next 2 sc"? Or do you just skip the last stitch?

Yup, it was definitely a typo. Thank you very much for letting me know! I corrected the problem :D

In general, I don't want to be 'reinventing the wheel'.

There is already a VERY nice snivey pattern here: http://amigurumi-kc.blogspot.com/2012/01/grass-type-unova-region-starter-snivy.html and a tepig crochet pattern here: http://gundamgirlwing.blogspot.com/2010/11/pokabu.html .

Hello, I'd like to thank you very much for posting such a wonderful pattern! I'm really new to crochet, and I've been using this to make something for my friend's birthday...

however, I'm a little confused as to how you're decreasing on the body :( Is it simply continuous decreasing, or are there other crochets in between??? I've had to retry the body multiple times because it simply doesnt look right at all after I start decreasing :(

I'm not sure if you actually check this blog anymore, or if you'll even get to read this, but I do really hope you do and that I could get a response soon...
