Wooper Plushie


Wooper is made by request.  Funny how none of my girls ever mentioned wooper at all ...  but as soon as he was done,  the girls were in love and he went to live on my 16 year old daughter's shelf with so many of the other pokemon I've made  LOL 

If you find any problems in the pattern, or just have a question feel free to post here or send me an email.  I'll get back to you on it ASAP.

Wooper

MATERIALS:

WW yarn in blue and violet
G Hook
Fiberfill
Small scraps of felt in black and white
Black embroidery thread.

NOTES:

Gauge isn’t necessary here,  as long as your hook and yarn choices, and your tension result in a tight and even stitch so that the stuffing won’t show through.

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

HEAD/BODY:

Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring  (6)
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around  (12)
Rnd 3:  sc in next sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (18)
Rnd 4:  sc in next 2 sc,  2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 5:  sc in next 3 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (30)
Rnd 6:  sc in next 4 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (36)
Rnd 7:  sc in next 5 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (42)
Rnd 8:  sc in next 6 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (48)
Rnd 9-14:  sc in each sc around  (48)
Rnd 15:  sc in next 6 sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (42)
Rnd 16:  sc in next 5 sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (36)
Rnd 17:  sc in next 4 sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (30)
This is a good point to begin stuffing,  stuff firmly while shaping.  Continue stuffing as you progress.
Rnd 18:  sc in next 3 sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (24)
Rnd 19:  sc in next 2 sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (18)
Rnd 20-21:  sc in each sc around (18)
Rnd 22:  sc in next 5 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (21)
Rnd 23:  sc in each sc around  (21)
Rnd 24:  sc in next 6 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (24)
Rnd 25   sc in each sc around  (24)
Rnd 26:  sc in next 3 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (30)
Rnd 27-30:  sc in each sc around  (30)
Rnd 31:  sc in next 4 sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (36)
Rnd 32-33:  sc in each sc around  (36)
Rnd 34:  sc in next sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (24)
Rnd 35:  sc in next sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (18)
Rnd 36:  dec over next 2 sc around  (9)
F/O.  Add any stuffing needed to finish shaping.  Weave tail through final round and tug to close the opening.  Secure and weave in ends.


FEET (make 2):
Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring  (6)
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around  (12)
Rnd 3-8:  sc in each sc around  (12)
Rnd 9:  dec over next 2 sc around  (6)
F/O.  Stuff lightly  (feet need to be a little flat,  but still have some dimension).   Weave tail through final round, tug to close.  Secure and weave in ends.

TAIL:

Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring  (6)
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around  (12)
Rnd 3:  sc in next sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (18)
Rnd 4:  sc in next 2 sc,  2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 5-8:  sc in each sc around  (24)
Rnd 9:  sc in next 2 sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (18)
Rnd 10-12:  sc in each sc around  (18)
Begin stuffing here,  stuff lightly  (tail is slightly flattened but stiff a little puffy).  Shape as you stuff.  Continue stuffing as you progress.
Rnd 13:  sc in next sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (12)
Rnd 14-16:  sc in each sc around  (12)
Rnd 17:  sc in next 2 sc,  dec over next 2 sc around  (9)
Rnd 18-20:  sc in each sc around  (9)
Finish adding any stuffing needed to shape tail.  Flatten end and sc through all layers across to close.
F/O   weave in ends.

EARS/HORNS/ANTENNAE?:
(make 2)
Using the violet color:

Ch 14.  Slip stitch in second ch from hook and next 5 chs.  Ch 6.  Slip stitch in second chain from hook and remaining 4 chains.  Slip stitch to next chain of original ch14.  Slip stitch in next 2 chains.  Chain 4.  Slip stitch in second chain from hook and next 2 chains.  Slip stitch to next chain of original ch14.  Slip stitch to last chain of original ch14,  ch 1.

Working down the free loops on other side of the original ch14.  Slip stitch next 2 loops,  Chain 4.  Slip stitch in second chain from hook and next 2 chains.  Slip stitch to next loop of original ch14.  Slip stitch next 2 loops,  Ch 6.  Slip stitch in second chain from hook and remaining 4 chains.  Slip stitch to next loop of original ch14.  Slip stitch each remaining loop to end.  F/O

(These will stand up on the head of the Wooper  (as shown in the photos).  If you would rather make them sturdier,  then crochet 4 of them,  instead of 2.  Place two of them back to back and whip stitch them together. )

STRIPES:

Using violet:

Stripe 1:  Ch 5.  Sc in second chain from hook and remaining 3 chains.  F/O.
Stripe 2:  Ch 7.  Sc in second chain from hook and remaining 5 chains.  F/O.
Stripe 3:  Ch 9.  Sc in second chain from hook and remaining 7 chains.  F/O.


FINAL ASSEMBLY:  

I highly recommend pinning all the parts together before sewing,  to ensure that you’re happy with everything before making it permanent.

Feet are sewn at bottom of body as shown.  Tail is sewn to the bottom of the body at the back as shown (make sure the wooper is balanced on the two feet and the base of the tail)

Stripes are pinned to body and sewn as shown.   Ears/Horns are pinned to side of the head and sewn securely as shown.

Eyes are two small circles of black felt,  which two very small circles of white for ‘catch lights’

Mouth is embroidered as shown.

WAY cute! You are so amazingly good at this. Thanks so much, I'll be linking.

Mario said...

I just finished. I figured I would make him for my birthday today. The only thing I found was in round 35, it says you should have 18, but I had 16 and double counted it. I might have just messed up or something, though. Thank you so much!

WolfDreamer said...

Mario: You're right, it should read (16) in round 35, and round 36 should read (8).

The thing is, right now Blogger for some reason isn't letting me make any edits, it wont load the post for me to make the changes, but I'll wait a while and see if I can't get it to work soon. :D

thepandabetweenus said...

Thanks so much for this pattern :) I wanna start making one right away!

Also, considering the animal Wooper is based on, the ears/horns/antennae are actually supposed to be external gills.

You are absolutely a PEACH!!! I love you patterns! They are very easy to follow and so CUTE! My 12 and 9 year old girls are in love. I've only been doing amigurumi for a month now and I'm so in love with it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! You are a gem for sharing your ideas.

Obsidiana said...

I love your patterns.
I made a Wooper for my boyfriend (big pokémon nerd) for our anniversary and he absolutely loved it.

Thank you so much for these awesome patterns.

Ampharos next ...

Julia Nonya said...

AAH! It's adorable! I'm making one for my brother, who is IN LOVE with wooper!

Julia Nonya said...

It's a wonderful pattern! :) I just love wooper, but the only problem I found, was that the feet in the pattern don't look like the feet in the picture. When I made them they were much smaller, and not as long. I can still work with them though, and they still look good on Wooper. Thanks so much for all of your patterns!

WolfDreamer said...

Many times, parts seem smaller until stuffed and/or pinned to the doll.

We also need to take into account that some people crochet tighter, making their work 'appear' smaller...and it could also be the yarn you're using, some yarns 'crush' more than others, creating smaller stitches even with the same hook and tension.

If your stitch count on each row is correct, and your row count is correct, then it's likely one of the possible reasons listed :D

I love this Wooper! It was pretty easy, too! :)

Can I make a request for a Vaporion?

"Ears/Horns are pinned to side of the head and sewn securely as shown."

What do you mean "pinned to the side of the head"? Are these just temporary pins until you have the ears sewn in? And how do you make sure the ears point out like yours do? Mine tend to droop with stuff like this...

Thanks!

WolfDreamer said...

Well, they can droop. But if you crochet tightly on the ears/horns/or whatever those are LOL, they should hold up fairly well. If not, you can always crochet around a pipe cleaner (felt stems?) or a piece of wire to help them stay put.

I didn't have any real trouble with mine holding up, but I crocheted them rather tightly so that they were sort of stiff. :D

Faith said...

I'm having trouble with the antenna part. Can you help me? Please
