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. 🙂

IMG_3805

When I was making it, my girl asked what I was making, and I said a hot dog as requested by your brother.  She then said, “I want one too, but I know you must be tired making it for him, so I am not going to ask you to make me one.”  Awwww…..I gotta make her one since she’s so sweet, right?  And here it is for my sweetie pie:
Hot Dog Pattern is now available at Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy.  Hope you will enjoy making one for your loved one(s)!

Crochet Owl Duo – Owl Always Love(s) you!

I promised a little girl that I would make her an owl ornament that she saw at my coworker’s office. I didn’t save the pattern (not mine) when I made it for my coworker a while ago, but managed to find it on the website. After I was half way through (about an hour), I felt something’s not right. That’s a small charm and I should have been done within 30 minutes, but how come I was only half done??? Then I checked the website again and realized the designer has two versions for this owl – one is a travel plush (click here for the pattern) that I was working on, and the other one is the baby version (click here for the pattern) I wanted. I didn’t bother to take the half done one apart.  Instead I finished it off and gave it to my 3-yr old boy who loves animals.  Emoji After that I made the baby version for that little girl.  I modified the pattern a little bit, but you should definitelly try the patterns out if you crochet coz it’s super easy but cute.  Emoji So here they are:
