Present continuous for kids video tutorials

All pages and patterns of this site can now be present continuous for kids video tutorials by using the ‘Translate this Page’ Gadget at the top of the right hand column of every page. All patterns are written assuming that the reader has a basic understanding of crochet and amigurumi, IE: working in rounds, sc increase and decrease, basic understanding of construction of the parts.

This is the Jigglypuff I made for the kids. I don’t like making 3D pieces in wool because it’s inconsistent and a bit stretchy to work with. I’ll have to remake one at some point in good acrylic yarn. As usual, if anything isn’t right, or confusing, let me know and I’ll fix it as soon as I can. I tend to prefer to join my rounds when I work, but if you prefer to use continuous rounds and stitch markers, that’s also good. Whatever is most comfortable for you. Gauge isn’t really important, as long as the hook, yarn and your tension result in a fairly tight stitch so that the stuffing doesn’t show thru.

Being stuffing at this point and continue as you go along. Add any more stuff needed to create a nice ball shape. Weave tail through the last round worked and pull to close. Row 13: sc in next 7 sc, leave remaining stitches unworked.

Row 1: ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next ch. In next ch work hdc, ch 1, hdc. Row 2: 2 sc in first sc, sc in each sc up to the ch 1, work sc, ch 1, sc in the ch 1 space. Sc in each sc to last st, 2 sc in last stitch. Row 3: 2 sc in first sc, sc in each sc up to the ch1 sp.

1, sc in the ch 1 sp. Place two of the ear pieces together and sc around through all layers evenly. Cut a piece of black felt to fit inside the ear as shown in the picture leaving the outer row of sc visible. Sew in place using black sewing thread.
