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 NBA Hat – Yarn Club Fundraising Project #3 – Free Pattern

When I sold my first project- the ear warmer, the associate dean passed by and asked if we would make and sell any items for men.  And he said he would be interested in a basket ball hat.  You name it, I make it.  Here’s what I made for him:

File_002

I used Bernat Premium Yarn (Color: Royal Blue) that I got from Walmart for the blue, and used scrap yarns left from my previous projects for the orange and white.

bernat_premium

And here’s the pattern that I made up based on an NBA tuque that I found in google:

ABBREVIATIONS

ch = chain; sl st = slip stitch; st(s) = stitche(es); sc = single crochet; hdc = half double crochet; rep = repeat; * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated.

Note: At the end of each round of hdc, slip stitch and chain 2, then turn.

R1: Using blue color, 5 hdc in magic ring. – 5 hdc

R2: 2 hdc in each hdc around – 10 hdc

R3: 2 hdc in each hdc around – 20 hdc

R4: *hdc 1, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 30 hdc

R5: *hdc 2, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 40 hdc

R6: *hdc 3, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 50 hdc

R7: *hdc 4, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 60 hdc

File_001

R8: hdc in each hdc around. – 60 hdc

R9: *hdc 5, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 70 hdc

R10-R18: hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R19: change to white yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R20: change to blue yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R21: change to orange yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R22: change to blue yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R23: change to white yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

You will now do the edge of the hat by using front post half double crochet and back post half double crochet.

R24: On each of the 70 hdc from R23, you make 1 front post half double crochet and 1 back post half double crochet alternatively across. – 70 stitches

R25: Make 1 back post half double crochet and 1 front post half double crochet alternatively across. – 70 stitches

Repeat R24 and R25 until you reach the height of your preference for the edge.  I repeated twice and ended in R29.

Fasten off and sew in ends.
