Abbreviations 
Sc = single crochet
inc = single crochet increase
dec = single crochet decrease
FO = fasten off
slst = slip stitch
ch = chain
BLO = Back loop only

What You'll Need
Worsted weight yarn in:
Brown
Blue
Black
Red 
White
Sock weight yarn in:
Grey
Felt in:
White
Pink
Black
12mm safety eyes
Scissors
Tapestry Needle
Glue Gun
Polyester stuffing


Head
Using brown yarn
Row 1: SC 8 in magic loop 
Row 2: Inc x 8 (16)
Row 3: *Sc, inc* x 8 (24)
Row 4: *Sc 2, inc* x 8 (32)
Row 5-11: Sc x 32 (32)
Row 12: *Sc, Dec*. x 7, Sc 11 (25)
Row 13: Sc
Row 14: *Sc, Dec* X 3, Sc 13, Sc, dec (21)
Row 15-18: Sc x 21 (21)
Row 19-close: Dec to close, FO
Now you can add the felt details as seen in the picture.  For the eyes you can either use safety eyes like I did (12mm), or use felt.  I looped black yarn through the stitches, and fastened it off.

Neck
Using brown yarn
Row 1: Ch 15, join with slst
Row 2: Sc x 15 (15)
Row 3: *Sc 4, inc* X 3 (18)
Row 4: Sc 18 (18)
 Using blue yarn 
Row 5: *Sc 4, inc 5* X 2 (28)
Row 6: Sc x 28 in the BLO (you want it to look like a collar)
Row 7: Sc x 28
Row 8: *Sc 8, inc* X 2, Sc 9, inc (31)
Row 9-11: Sc x 31 (31)
Row 12: Sc 5, *Sc 5, inc* x 4, Sc (35) 
Row 13-14: Sc X 35 (35)
 Using teal yarn 
Row 15-17: Sc x 35 (35)
Now you're going to make the legs!  I've attached a picture for how this process should look (although it isn't the proper amount of stitches, so don't let that throw you off)
For you, you want to have the legs be 17 stitches.  That means there will be one extra (with your round of 35).  I just left it in the middle, and sewed it closed once the legs were done.  
So starting on the legs you will repeat this process for the other one:
Once your work looks like the picture, 
Row 18-22: Sc around (17)


Feet
 Using red yarn 
Row 23: Sc around, but you're going to put an increase in each of the 8 front stitches.  This will make it look like shoes/feet (25)
Row 24-25: Sc x 25 (25)
 Using whiteyarn 
Row 26: Sc x 25 (25)
Row 27: In the BLO *Sc 2, Dec*x 6, Sc (19)
Row 28 to close: DEC to close, FO
Repeat this for the other leg, and then stuff the body from the neck.  
Sew the head onto the neck.  
At this point you can also embroider the black X's onto his sweater.  

Arms
 Using blue yarn 
Row 1: Ch 8 in loop
Row 2: *Sc 3, inc* X 2 (10)
Row 3-11: Sc x 10 (10)
 Using brown yarn 
Row 12: *Sc, inc* X 5 (15)
Row 13: Sc x 15 (15)
Row 14: *Sc, Dec* X 5 (10)
Row 15 to close: Dec to close, FO
Stuff the arms, and sew them onto the body. Below is a picture without the sweater for better arm placement ideas

Coat
 Using fingering weight grey yarn 
Row 1: Ch 38
Row 2-8: Sc x 39 (39)
Row 9: Sc 5, Dec, Sc 25, Dec, Sc 5 (37)
Row 10-14: Sc x 38, FO (37)
Now you have a rectangle that should wrap around his body under his arms.  You're going to crochet a smaller rectangle on the top of this, that will sit between his shoulders.  
Row 15(ish): Count 13 stitches (we're crocheting across the wide part of the rectangle), and put your hook into the 14th.  Sc 11 starting there.  When you finish, there should be another 13 stitches left on the other side.  
Row 16-17(ish): Turn your work, ch 1.  Sc x 11
FO
Now you should have a raised rectangle on top of your larger rectangle.  Now you're going to direct your attention to those two lower spaces with 13 stitches.

Start of collar/jacket lapel 
Row 1 (but still attached to the other piece): Choose either, and starting in the 1st stitch, Sc 7
Row 2: Sc x 7 (7)
Row 3: Sc 5, Dec (6)
Row 4: Dec, Sc 4 (5)
Row 5: Sc 3, Dec (4)
Row 6-30: Sc x 4 (4)
Row 31: Inc, Sc 3 (5) 
** you want your increases to be on the same side as your previous ones.  If they aren't for some reason, just reverse these next 3 rows to make it right.**
Row 32: Sc 4, inc (6)
Row 33: Inc, Sc 5 (7)
Row 34-35: Sc x 7 (7)
FO

Sewing the collar on.  
You'll be sewing it to the other side (the other 13 stitches that you didn't start on)  Starting on the edge, sew your work to the 7 stitches.
*Attaching it to the middle raised rectangle*
Count 12 rows, in the 13th sew across the 11 back stitches. Really, you just want to be sewing the middle of this piece to that raised rectangle.  

Those 6 stitches on the large rectangle that weren't worked/sewed in are now the openings for the arm holes.  

Jacket Arms
Row 1: Crocheting onto the arm hole space, Sc 17 around. 
(you will have to do some decreases to make the crocheting look smooth.  I just eyeballed it and it worked fine. )
Row 2-8: Sc x 17 (17)
Row 9: Sc around, but dec 1 under the arm to shape the sleeves.  (16)
Row 10-17: Sc x 16 (16)
Weave in all ends, and sew the lapel and collar down.  

Growlithe Pattern

This week I'm giving you guys a pattern for Growlithe!  This tiny, adorable little Pokemon would look perfect sitting on your desk or shelf, and is incredibly easy to make to boot! 

For this one, you'll have to be at least mildly comfortable with embroidery, as the stripes are embroidered on.  Additionally, get ready to be patient.  The fur takes forever to attach on. 

It's all worth it though.  Once you're done you're left with a cute, fluffy friend.  :D

Growlithe Pattern

Materials:

3.25mm crochet hook
1 ball orange worsted weight yarn
Small amount of black  and white/cream worsted weight yarn
1 ball of white or cream roving yarn (or any yarn you can brush out easily)
Polyester stuffing
Tapestry Needle
Scissors 
8mm safety eyes

Abbreviations

SC = single crochet
DEC = decrease
INC = increase
FO = Fasten off
slst = slip stitch
X = stitch 

Head
Row 1: Make a magic loop and SC 8 into it (8)
Row 2: INC x 8 (16)
Row 3: *SC, INC* x 8 (24)
Row 4-6: SC x 24 (24)
Row 7: SC 7, INC, SC 8, INC, SC 7 (26)
Row 8: SC x 26
Now you're going to place the safety eyes in-between rows 6-7 in between the two increases.  Count in 2 from each of the increases, and place the eyes there.  
For example: INC X EYE X X X X EYE X INC
Row 9: SC 2, DEC 11, SC 2 (15)
Stuff Head
Row 10: SC, DEC 6, SC 2 (9)

Body
Continuing from head
Row 11: INC 3, SC 5, INC 2 (15)
Row 12: INC 2, SC 12, INC (19)
Row 13-16: SC x 19 (19)
Row 17-Close: DEC to close, FO with slst

Nose
Row 1: Make a magic loop, and SC 6 into it (6)
Row 2: INC 3, SC 3, FO with slst (9)

Legs/Arms
Row 1: Make a magic loop, and SC 8 into it (8)
Row 2: SC 8 (8)
Row 3: DEC 3, SC 2 (5)
Row 4-5: SC 5, FO with slst (5)
The decrease shaping will create a paw shape.  

Ears:
Row 1: Make a magic loop, and SC 6 into it (6)
Row 2: INC 4, SC 2, FO with slst (10) 

Sew arms/legs, nose, and ears onto the body.  

Tail:
You're going to make a base for the tail, so you don't have to use roving for all of it.  
Row 1: Make a magic loop, and SC 6 into it (6)
Row 2: INC 3, SC 3 (9)
Row 3: DEC 6, SC 3 (6)
Row 4-5: SC (6)
Row 7-Close: DEC to close, FO with slst

Sew the tail onto the body.  

Now for the fun part - the fluff!

You can either attach it this way: https://freshstitches.com/how-to-add-yarn-hair-to-amigurumi-tutorial/ , and brush out the yarn to be fluffy

OR you can do it the lazy way like I did: 

Using a hot glue gun, pinch small pieces of the roving, and stick them where they're supposed to be.  It works, and it's quick!  You just have to be careful with the glue, as it can look very messy if done badly.  

A peek into the pattern post scheduled for 2 weeks from now (it's already available on my Patreon)

Arcanine!









Bumble Bee Pattern

This week you guys get two patterns!  I haven't been posting for a while, so I decided that I would re-boot my blog by making two posts.

The first is this adorable bumble bee pattern.  This pattern is actually the first pattern I've ever written.  It's been sitting in my patterns folder forever, so I decided I should go ahead and share it!  It would be perfect for a nursery decoration, or as a rattle if you add a little shaker inside.

Deadpool Crochet Pattern

There's a thing I think all of you need, and that's a tiny Merc With A Mouth plushie.  Yup, for this week's post I've written a Deadpool pattern!




I've also just written a brand new knitting pattern if that's your thing.  It's for a super warm knit hooded scarf that's available here.  (I'm a grad student, so I would appreciate it so much if you could support me by purchasing some of my paid patterns <3)




Anyways, without further ado, here's my Deadpool pattern!

Deadpool Crochet Pattern

By LoopTeeLoops

Ravelry Project Page

What You'll Need
· Worsted weight red yarn
· Worsted weight black yarn
· Black felt
· White felt
· Red felt
· Brown felt
· Stuffing (for filling the body)
· Fabric glue/hot glue gun
· 3.5mm crochet hook
· Tapestry needle
· Scissors

Abbreviations
SC = Single crochet
CH = Chain
SC INC = Single crochet increase
SC DEC = Single crochet decrease
FO = Fasten off


Head
With Red Yarn
Row 1: Ch 2.   SC 7 in 2nd chain from hook (7 stitches)
*alternatively, you can make a magic loop with 7 stitches
Row 2: *SC INC* x 7 (14 stitches)
Row 3: *SC INC* x 14 (28 stitches)
Row 4 – 11: *SC* x 28 (28 stitches)
Row 12: *SC* x 4, *SC DEC* x 10, *SC* x 4  (18 stitches)
Row 13: SC, *SC DEC x 8*, SC (10 stitches)
This decrease will create the shape for the front and back of the head.



Body
For the body, you’ll need to get comfortable with switching the colour of your
working yarn.  You can find lots of tutorials on Youtube if you’re unsure of how to properly switch the yarn colour while crocheting. 

Row 1: with red *SC* x 2, with black * SC INC* x 2, with red *SC INC* x 2, with black * SC INC* x 2, With red *SC* x 2 (16 stitches)
Row 2-5: with red *SC* x 2, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 4, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 2 (16 stitches)


Legs 
Now you find yourself at the back of the torso.  To begin the legs, you’re going to continue the same pattern as before:
Row 1: with red *SC* x 2, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 2.  (8 stitches)
You’re now at the front of the body.  Using the red yarn still (you’re done with the black yarn for now), instead of continuing around the body, you’re going to begin making the leg by putting a SC into the first SC of row one.  (See
pictures below)




<— As you can see by this picture, I’ve put a SC into the first red SC of row 1, making a loop to build the leg off of.





  

Row 2: (following the step above) with red SC 8 around.  (8 stitches)
Row 3: *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 4: with black *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 5: with red *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 6-close: *SC DEC* x 2, *Slip stitch DEC to close*.  FO. 
Now it should look like this:


 

 For the other leg, repeat.  Starting at the back of the torso:

Row 1: with red *SC* x 2, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 2.  (8 stitches)
Row 2: (following the same steps as above to make the loop) with red SC 8 around.  (8 stitches)
Row 3: *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 4: with black *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 5: with red *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 6-close: *SC DEC* x 2, *Slip stitch DEC to close*.  FO. 

Arms
(Make two)
Row 1: with black CH 7, join into a loop with a slip stitch. (7 stitches)
Row 2: *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 3-4: with red *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 5: with black *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 6: with red *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 7-close: *SC DEC* x 2, *Slip stitch DEC to close*. FO.

Sew the arms right under the neck, at the sides of the body. 


Now your Deadpool should look like this:


 Now comes the facial features and accessories.  These are completely up to you, but I’ll go through and explain what I did for mine.  (As well as give some 
more up close pictures.)

Eyes
I cut two small egg shaped pieces out of white felt, and two large ovals out of black. 


 BELT & POUCHES
For the belt, I cut a thin strip out of the black felt.  The buckle is super easy.  Just cut one small black circle, and a larger red circle.  Cut the black circle in half, and glue it onto the red
circle.  I made two pouches to put on either side of the belt buckle by cutting a
rectangle, and folding the top over and gluing it down. 

I also put two smaller belts on both legs, with one pouch on the side of each one. 



Glue everything on, and weave in any loose ends, and you're done!

Tiny Cubone Crochet Pattern

A while back I got a request for a tiny Cubone, but all of the patterns available weren't really my cup of tea so I wrote my own!  I had been meaning to put the nearly nonsensical scraps of pattern notes into a legible pattern for quite a while, so I finally sat down and forced myself to write.  

I hope you enjoy the pattern, and feel free to let me know if there's any issues. (Preferably in the comments so others can see the solution if they had the same problem.)

Fasten eyes, and stuff the head.
