Lugia Plushie




Ok y'all.  Here he is.  Lugia.

I'm sorry that my pics are always crummy,  but hey,  I'm not a photographer  LOL and I'm stuck with really old cameras that don't work unless they feel like it.

This doll ain't for the faint of heart.   It's better suited to experienced crocheters with a few serious dolls under their belts!   

He's larger than all the other pokemon I've made in the past and a little more difficult as well.   

I try to explain everything as well as I can in the pattern instructions,  just take it one step at a time and I'll try to help you as much as I can...  just post if you have any questions!   I've been sick all week,  and typing this wasn't easy while feeling so badly,  so if you find anything that's wrong, out of place or just plain confusing - that's probably why - and let me know I'll fix it!

Ok guys,  here goes.... and good luck! :D


MATERIALS:

WW yarn in white (at least a full skein) medium blue and dark blue
G hook
Fiberfill
Embroidery thread
Small pieces of felt in white and black
Sewing thread to match colors
Yarn Needle
Heavy Gauge wire for wings (optional)


NOTES:

Gauge isn't very important for this project, as long as your choice of yarn, hook and individual tension result in a firm consistent stitch that won't allow the stuffing to show through.

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

Lugia is one of the pokemon whose original 2-D design is not particularly well suited to 'plushie' form. He will be unbalanced. This doll is probably best designed to be suspended with fishing line or other 'invisible' material from a shelf or ceiling as opposed to 'sitting'. You can try weighing down his backside, but the wing structure will still be a nightmare. Some may be able to construct a wire frame for the inside of the wings that will help hold them out, but the sheer weight of the wings is still going to pull heavily on the sides of the body causing it to deform over time.

Typically, I join my rounds when making dolls. If you're more comfortable with using continuous rounds, by all means go ahead, however, in this particular doll you may have some issues with the continuous rounds when working the 'wings'. If at all possible, you should probably join your rounds at least when crocheting the wings in this pattern.

Be prepared to fiddle and fuss a bit with constructing this doll. As I said, it's not an easy one to make, but it DOES work. This pattern isn't well suited for a toy that will be 'played with'... it's best used for display purposes only.


Lugia's HEAD/BODY and TAIL are all crocheted as a single unit.

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, 3 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc, 3 sc in next sc (12)
Rnd 4: 3 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 4 sc, 2 sc in each of next 2 sc, sc in each of next 4 sc, 3 sc in last sc (18)
Rnd 5: sc in each sc around (18)
Rnd 6: 3 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 16 sc, 3 sc in last sc (22)
Rnd 7: sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in each of next 2 sc, sc in last 10 sc (24)
Rnd 8-12: sc in each sc around (24)
Rnd 13: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (18)
Stuff head at this point. Stuff firmly and shape while stuffing (this is your only chance to shape the head, so make sure you're happy with it before going on). Continue stuffing neck, body and tail as you progress through the pattern, just make sure that you have the shape you want as you stuff. The neck needs careful attention, as it needs to be stuffed quite firmly (particularly where it joins the head and the body) in order to keep it from 'lolling' later on.

HEAD CREST:

Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic ring (4)
Rnd 2: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc, 2 sc in last sc (6)
Rnd 3: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in last sc (8)

Rnd 8: sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in last sc (18)
Rnd 9: sc in each sc around (18)
F/O and weave in ends.
You can add a tiny bit of stuffing here if you wish to create more of a rounded crest for the head,
Or you can flatten the crest and pin in place to back of head in position desired (use photos for help with placement)

WINGS (make2):

(If you wish to add a wire frame to the wings, you will need to plan that frame to be introduced before crocheting the fingers. I recommend a wire frame that will go from wing tip to wing tip, through the 'body' of the doll. Otherwise, you won't have the needed strength to hold up these heavier wings. If you're going to be suspending the doll in the air, then the wire frame can be omitted, because you can use the strings as a way to 'position' your wings as if in flight)
Rnd 1: Chain 7. Sc in 2nd chain from hook and each chain across. Turn work and working down the 'unused' side of the foundation chain, sc in the same chain as the last sc of other side, and each remaining chain across. Join to first sc with slip stitch. (12 sc)
Rnd 2-6: sc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 7: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (14)
Rnd 8: sc in each sc around (14)
Rnd 9: sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (16)
Rnd 10: sc in each sc around (16)
Rnd 11: sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)
Rnd 12: sc in each sc around (18)
Rnd 13: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (21)
Rnd 14: sc in each sc around (21)
Rnd 15: sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 16: sc in each sc around (24)
Rnd 17: sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (28)
Rnd 18: sc in each sc around (28)
Rnd 19: sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (32)
Rnd 20: sc in each sc around (32)
Rnd 21: sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (36)
Rnd 22: sc in each sc around (36)
Rnd 23: sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (40)
Rnd 24-26: sc in each sc around (40)
Do not fasten off.



Begin first 'finger':
Flatten wing 'end' – matching up your sc stitches. You will be working through only one 'side' at a time, but using both sides for each finger.

Rnd 1: sc in next 5 sc. Turn work so that other side is now facing you, sc in next 5 sc of the other side of the wing (what was the last 5 sc of the previous round) and join with slip stitch to first sc of 'finger'

ASSEMBLY:

All parts need to be pinned to the doll's body before sewing any on. With a doll this large, it's really important you get everything just the way you want it :D

Figuring out the part placement isn't very hard (especially after what you've been through already LOL), just refer to the photos and get everything the way you want ! Then you can sew it all down.

Eyes are cut from pieces of felt in the shapes shown. Mouth is embroidered on last.

Wow it looks awesome, but I think I'll wait to crochet this one like you said. I'm working on the Snorlax pattern, and it's only the second doll that I've made. Still, it looks awesome! I hope to crochet it one day.

I sincerely hope that you are completely well very soon.

I know exactly how you feel as I just went through 3 Z-packs to try to get rid of whatever bug has bit me.

Please rest and take care of yourself ! ! !

OMG! Wolfdreamer, I now know what to give #2 son for Christmas!Thank-you.
My 4 kids adore the pokemon I've made for them so far from your patterns. I found them so addictive I invented a Diglett for them yesterday - my first ever self-made pattern! It turned out GREAT. Thank-you for the inspiration. Now two want to learn crochet for themselves, lol.

WolfDreamer said...

Oh, I *know* the addictive part! LOL. Although I still love making jewelry, doilies, clothes, blankets and the rest - I am addicted to 3D crochet. I love making dolls...and no matter what else I'm working on, I'm 'designing' a new doll pattern in my head :D

Anonymous said...

I am also addicted to crocheting in 3D. I love making pokemon the best though. My favorite of your patterns is lugia. I haven't made it yet, mainly becaus I don't have the right yarn. Which is hard to believe considering how much yarn I own! I also like to wing it. Ive made quite a few on my own, but I like using your patterns better alot of times. Im going to star a bulbasaur I think. Any tips?

i love all your patterns i am even using them for Christmas presents, but i would say that you have disappointed me by not making a suicune. it is my favorite but other than that i love your patterns.

O my goodness! I love this site! I have been crocheting since I was like 6 and now I'm 13! I didn't know nor wanted to know how to read patterns until a few months ago when I found your site! My grandma showed me how and I have made bayleaf, umbreon, amphoros, and I can't wait to make lugia! I would really love it if you could make a suicune.

I just hope you know how much I appreciate these patterns! So talented and its great that I can access them free because I'm 14 and can't really be buying patterns. I would love to make a donation but maybe when I'm older :)
YOU ROCK

I am simply amazed by your pokemon plushies and your patterns for making them. They all look so very similar to the pokemon themselves, and I think they are much neater than just picking up a plushie online or at a store. I've been wanting to learn to crochet and this has definitely given me the motivation to learn and then make some of my favorite pokemon once I'm better at it. :D

This Lugia plushie is astounding though! It looks AWESOME! Much better than many of the official Lugia plushies I have seen. You should think of doing Ho-oh. ;)

Also want to point out that I love the detail you put into the colors for the pokemon, too. And your descriptions for the patterns seem so informative and descriptive. Thanks for sharing the patterns in advance! I'm sure I'll be using them in the near future. :)

I love this pattern, found no problems with it and it was a great challenge. Please make an ice pokemon! That is my favorite type! I like Snorunt the most but I can settle for any ice pokemon. Thank you soooo much for these amazing patterrns! you are sooo talented! Thanks again!

Eva Lindqvist said...

My son had only one comment: "MAKE!!!" ... I'm printing :) Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Metagross386 said...

I've only glanced at your work and I think you're amazing. I'm now going to work on doing things like this, but I have to do it on my own since only know how to knit, and not crochet. Keep up the good work!

Candice said...

Is it possible for you to post an entry on how you make these patterns? I've crocheted a few of your patterns and my friends all love them, but now I have a friend who wants a Raikou.

Any advice please??

WolfDreamer said...

Candice: My method for making them is really rather simple. I look up pictures in various poses and angles of what I want to make. (Or for something I just dream up, I make a sketch from several angles). Then just start crocheting.

Each of the parts is general shape, so I start by deciding what shapes I'm going to need, and what modifications are needed to get the look I want.

I often have to make several versions before I find the one that works best, but that's part of the process. :D

I always pin everything together, and place it somewhere that I can see it from all angles and just leave it there for a day or so, looking at it and making sure I like the overall design and placement, before I sew things together.

Hope that helps some. I really dont have a complicated method. LOL

Keep up the great work!!

Could u make a trubbish and turtwig? I love to crochet and I know a bunch of kids who love these pokemon.

Anonymous said...

OMGEEZERS! SO COOL! I made my friend Yami an Umbreon (thanks to your pattern) and her sister wants me to make a shadow lugia, because that's her favorite pokemon. My wrist is bothering me already...
I just have one question, how do you do your rounds? Do you do a continuous spiral, or do you do the 'slst to first st, ch 1, and turn' method, because I would really like to know what is most effective.

WolfDreamer said...

I don't use the continuous spiral .... I do join the rounds with a slip stitch, chain 1, but don't TURN.

After you sl st and chain 1, place your first stitch in the SAME place you just joined in, and continue around, do not turn. When you reach the end of the round, ignore the slip stitch AND the chain one, slip stitch to the first actual sc of the round, then chain 1 and put your first stitch in that same place as you just joined in....

You might think you're leaving a 'gap' at the end of the round by ignoring the sl st and chain 1, but you're not. :D

Omfg this lugia is most wonderful.

THIS LUGIA IS GLORIOUS.

Jennifer said...

I absolutely love your patterns. My nephew wants me to make this one for him. I am on the wings but got confused on the instructions for the first rnd for them. I am confused what you mean by "working down the 'unused' side of the foundation chain". Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Wow this is truly amazing!! My friend Jordan just asked for its and this is by far the best one I've found. Your patterns are amazing(: Do you think you could do a piplup one?

pokecrochet12 said...

I got a question. When you say work on the 'unused' side when you start the wings are you talking about the bottom of the chain?

Yes, the 'other side' of the foundation chain then you join the round and continue working the pattern. :D

I am not nearly at this level yet but I was just browsing around and this Lugia is SO awesome. It's how I imagined it to be in real life. Maybe one day I can make my own...
Thanks for sharing all your wonderful patterns!!

I think I may have done something wrong...I was doing the head neck and body part but I'm right at the end of that set of rounds and it's just a head and neck. What did I do?!

This is amazing!

First of all, I really love this one! It's gorgeous and it really looks like the one from the anime! ^^
But second, I have a question about the head-neck-body part.
In the pattern you say this:

Rnd 8-12: sc in each sc around (24)
Rnd 13: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (18)
Rnd 14-16: sc in each sc around (18)
Rnd 17: sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (15)

I'm from Belgium and English patterns are sometimes still a riddle for me, so I quite don't understand the part "sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (18)". It doesn't seem right when I do it. I do single stiches in the next 2 stiches, then I dec in the next 2, then I just stich around. But it always gets to 22 stiches :S

Could you please explain how to do that round?

wow, your patterns are amazing! I made this for my friend and he loved it, although it wasn't quite as beautiful as yours :P Could you possibly make a growlithe? He's one of my favorites but I can't seem to figure out quite how to make one

Elizabeth said...

Thank you so much for this patten, and all of your other patterns. I made this pattern so that I could bring it to portcon! YAY hugs from Maine :)

Now I want to learn how to crochet! D:

'Chele said...

Your creations amaze me. I could never make one. I sew more than crochet. Do you have any drawings or pattern pieces that might help me sew this? I've tried to make patterns before and it was way out of my league. My son really wants a large plushie for his birthday.

Kristy Rose said...

i am totally lost on how to make the wings :-( i can get to the first row of the "finger" but then, i have no idea what i'm doing wrong or how to construct the first finger plz help!!!

Julian Lindsay said...

I am 25 and I have been Crocheting for a while now. I love your designs there truly amazing. I was wondering if there was any way you could create a Dragonite, that is my favorite pokemon of all time. Thanks.

Anna Rappelt said...

How long before the natural weight of the wings deform the plush? And what should i do when that happens? Because i'm not entirely sure that i want to spend hours on a complicated plushie that's going to look deformed no matter how good a job i did on it initially.

mandy taylor said...

please please help me I have done the entire doll but I can't work out the wings or fingers. I don't understand how the stitches increase from 5 to 10 without increases just by working down the unused side. i'm very frustrated and desperate for advice

Faith Green said...

I love this! Thanks so much for sharing. One suggestion so far:

Rnd 13: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (18)

maybe you sould do the *sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc* repeat around

thingy to clear it up. I counted to find the right way to do it =)
