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)

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 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 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.

Mijumaru Pokemon Plush

(Edit 2/12/11  -  I do know that the English name for this pokemon is Oshawott,  but at the time the doll was made,  they had not published any of the starters' names in English.  I can't change the title because that's also part of the URL,  so the page has to stay as is  :) - Linda)

Ok,  this one has been fun.  Most of you Pokemon fans are very familiar with the new games being released sometime next year called Pokemon Black and Pokemon White.  About a month ago or so, the starters for those games were 'leaked'  (although I'm pretty sure they intended to do that  LOL).  This one is Mijumaru  (it doesn't have an English name yet),  he's a Sea Otter Pokemon  (water type obviously).   If you'd like some more information about him and the other starters for Pokemon Black/White,  you can go to  Serebii.com.


I had a hard time finding pictures of the 'back' of this pokemon,  so this is my best 'guesstimate'  until such time as we get better/more pictures released,  as we get closer to the game release.   If I need to make any really serious changes to the pattern ...  I will.  But for now,  here it is :D

As always,  if you have any trouble with the pattern,  or find any errors,  just note me here and I'll get to it asap   :D

EDIT:  Sorry that the colors aren't right on here,  They looked right on the computer,  until I uploaded them.  I have no idea what happened.  I'll see if I can get other pictures with the colors right,  but you will see the correct colors if you visit the website noted above.  :D

Mijumaru


MATERIALS:

WW Yarn in white, light turquoise, dark blue, and scrap amounts of a light coral and a light brown
G Hook
Fiberfill

NOTES:

Gauge isn’t terribly important, as long as your hook, yarn and individual tension result in an even, fairly tight stitch that will prevent the fiberfill from showing through.

FINAL ASSEMBLY:

I recommend that you first pin all parts together before sewing,  to ensure that you are happy with all the parts and their placements before making it permanent.

Sew head to body at neck opening.   Collar is sewn just below the seam of head and neck,  with a slight ‘gap’ in the front as shown.  Make sure collar faces ‘up’ as shown. 

Sew arms to body as shown.  Feet are sewn with the round end sewn to the underside of the body.

Tail is sewn to body at the bottom of the back,  round end is ‘out’  and flat end is sewn to edge of underside of body.

Ears are sewn to head as shown.  Nose is centered on face as shown. 

Cut paper models of eyes and pin to face,  when satisfied with the paper ‘templates’ of the eye shape,  use that as a template to cut the eyes from black felt. Sew or glue securely to face as shown.  Glue or sew small circles of white to eyes for catchlights as shown.

Mouth and ‘freckles’ are added with embroidery thread.

Sew shell to front of body between arms,  add separation lines if desired.
