Crochet Pusheen with Donut

When you get a note from your girl like this, you have to do something, don’t you? 😉

So I did google as instructed by my daughter, and made her this:

But I was not happy with the body (not chubby enough), so I did another one:

Here’s how I did mine:

Body:

R1: 6 sc in magic ring. – 6 sc.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around. – 12 sc.
R3: *sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 18 sc.
R4: * sc in first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 24 sc.
R5: * sc in first 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 30 sc.
R6: *sc in first 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 36 sc.
R7: *sc in first 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 42 sc.
R8: *sc in first 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 48 sc.
R9-14: sc in each sc around. – 48 sc.
R15: sc in first 46 sc, sc2tog. – 47 sc.
R16: sc in first 45sc, sc2tog. – 46 sc.
R17: sc in first 44 sc, sc2tog. – 45 sc.
R18: sc in first 43 sc, sc2tog. – 44 sc.
R19: sc2tog, sc in first 40 sc, sc2tog. – 42 sc.
R20: sc2tog, sc in first 38 sc, sc2tog. – 40 sc.
R21: sc2tog, sc in first 36 sc, sc2tog. – 38 sc.
R22: sc2tog, sc in first 34 sc, sc2tog. – 36 sc.
R23: sc2tog, sc in first 32 sc, sc2tog. – 34 sc.
R24: sc2tog, sc in first 30 sc, sc2tog. – 32 sc.
R25: sc2tog, sc in first 28 sc, sc2tog. – 30 sc.
R26: sc2tog, sc in first 26 sc, sc2tog. – 28 sc.

Now you will be making the ear shape (dividing the 28 stitches into 14 stitches in the front and 14 in the back)
R27: *sl st, sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc, sl st*, rep 4 times. – 28 sc.
Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing. Stuff, and then sew to close the opening and weave in ends.

Tail:

Using black yarn,

R1: 6 sc in magic ring. – 6 sc.

R2-3: sc in each sc around. – 6 sc.

Change to grey yarn,

R4-R6: sc in each sc around. – 6 sc.

Change to black yarn,

R7-R8: sc in each sc around. – 6 sc.

Change to grey yarn,

R9-R10: sc in each sc around. – 6 sc.

Change to black yarn,

R11-R12: sc in each sc around. – 6 sc.

Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing onto the back of the pusheen body.

Feet (top ones holding donut):

R1: 4 sc in magic ring. – 4 sc.

Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing onto the donut and then onto pusheen body.

Feet (bottom ones):

R1: 6 sc in magic ring. – 6 sc.

R2: sc in each sc around. – 6 sc.

Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing onto the front bottom of pusheen body.

Donut: I used the pattern from this blog post (click here).

Add eyes, nose/mouth, whiskers.  I also used black felt to add two black stripes on the back of the pusheen.  Let me know what you think about this pattern after trying out. 🙂

Crochet Tiger – Zodiac Animal Series

After watching the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, my son fell in love with the mascot Soohorang which is a white tiger.  Since he’s born in the year of tiger, I decided to make him a little white tiger.  After looking into different patterns, I made up mine and here it comes!  Let me know how many of you will be interested in making one, then I will decide if I will bother to write up the pattern. 🙂

Crochet Mouse – Zodiac Animal Series

My daughter was born in the year of rat/mouse, and she always feels unpleasant about that although she loves “Tom and Jerry”.  I’ve been thinking of making a cute one for her to change her “stereotype”.  And here it comes:

IMG_7434

I was told that it looks similar to Totoro (from an animated Japanese tale).  Anyway, here’s the pattern that I made up and hope you will like it.  I used grey yarn for the body and white for the tummy, black for face features.

R1: 6 sc in magic ring. – 6 sc.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around. – 12 sc.
R3: *sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 18 sc.
R4: * sc in first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 24 sc.
R5: * sc in first 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 30 sc.
R6: *sc in first 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 36 sc.
R7: *sc in first 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 42 sc.
R8: *sc in first 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 48 sc.
R9: *sc in first 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 54 sc.
R10-R20: sc in each sc around. – 54 sc.
R21: *sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 18 times. – 36 sc.
R22 – R24: sc in each sc around. – 36 sc.
R25: *sc in first 4 sc, sc2tog*, rep 6 times. – 30 sc.
R26 – R27: sc in each sc around. – 30 sc.
R28: *sc in first 3 sc, sc2tog*, rep 6 times. – 24 sc.
R29: *sc in first 2 sc, sc2tog*, rep 6 times. – 18 sc.
R30: *sc 1, sc2tog*, rep 6 times. – 12 sc.
R31: *sc in first 2 sc, sc2tog *, rep 3 times. – 9 sc.
R32: *sc 1, sc2tog *, rep 3 times. – 6 sc.
Fasten off and finish stuffing.

You are now done with the body of the mouse.  For the tummy, I used white yarn and follow the body pattern from R1 to R5, fasten off and sew onto body.

For the ears, make 2.

R1: 6 sc in magic ring. – 6 sc.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around. – 12 sc.
R3: * sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 5 times.. – 15 sc.
R4 – R5: sc in each sc around. – 15 sc.

Fold the circle in half and sew ears onto body.  Add eyes, nose, whiskers.  Ta-da, you are done!  Hope you’ve had fun making a cute little mouse.  Feel free to be creative using different color combination.
