Umbreon Plushie

 
 
Well,  after many *many* requests,  I finally did an Umbreon.  I know this will bring about an onslaught of requests for the other 'Eevee-lutions'  and yes I'll get to them all...  eventually :D    It just depends on my yarn stash,  my time and well --- motivation.  LOL
As with all the patterns,  if you have any problems or if you notice anything wrong in the pattern  (I'm prone to typos LOL)  let me know and I'll get back to ya as soon as I can :D

This is a fairly good place to begin stuffing and shaping if you haven't already. Stuff fairly firmly while also shaping the body. Continue stuffing and shaping as you progress.

Rnd 29: sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc around (12)
Rnd 30: dec over next 2 sc around (6)
F/O. Add any stuffing needed to finish the shaping and weave the tail thread through the final round, pull gently to close up the small opening. Secure and weave in the tail yarn.

HEAD/NECK:

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)

Stuff head firmly while shaping, pay particular attention to the 'nose' area. The head should be pinned to the upper portion of the body (roughly rnds 24-30) with nose area facing forward (the two 'points' of the neck shaping create the cape that create the gentle curve of the neckline. ) See photos to help with placement.

F/O.

BACK LEGS:

Rnd 1-5: Same as for front leg
Rnd 6-7: sc in each sc around (8)
Begin stuffing at this point, foot and leg should be stuffed moderately firm, without overstuffing. You'll want a little bit of play in the leg to position the feet as you prefer. Continue stuffing as you progress.

Right Leg:

Row 1: Sc 9, leave remaining sc unworked, ch1 and turn (9)

FINAL ASSEMBLY:

I highly recommend that you pin all parts together before you begin to sew them, to make certain all parts are as you like and in the position you prefer.

Head is sewn to body as shown, take your time and pin the head on first, making sure that the neck is adequately stuffed, and that the 'nape' of the neck is positioned so as to create the curve of the neck. (See the pictures to help you position the head)

For the yellow markings, cut 5 oval shapes from yellow felt, then cut out the center of each to make the 'rings'. Pin one of them to the head, between the ears and slightly to the front. The other four are each sewn onto the 'shoulders' of the leg pieces. You can do this before you sew the legs to the body, but I would recommend that you first pin the legs in the positions you want on the body, and then pin the markings to the legs as you prefer them, then unpin the legs and sew on the markings (or you can wait to add the markings after sewing on the legs.)

When sewing the legs on, you will probably want to add a little stuffing under each 'shoulder'. Not much stuffing is generally required here, just enough to give a very slight 'roundness' to the shoulder/hip area – and make a smooth transition from leg to 'body'.

Ears and tail are positioned and sewn on as shown.

Eyes are cut from red and black felt scraps, in shapes as shown. Catch lights are very small pieces of white felt.
