The Great Pattern Update 2014

Hello again everyone! I took a long break due to family responsibilities and I am excited to be back :) 

First order of business, I have updated all the patterns in my store to include more detail and better descriptions. Going over them with fresh eyes has helped me clarify the trickier parts. They should be even easier to follow now.



Second, I have updated the Wind Waker Morth pattern and I think it's a lot better. I added more spikes and changed some of the construction aspects. Check it out and make a few for your friends.

Third, I have written yet another pikachu pattern! I made this one for a friend and she turned out so cute I had to share. Hope you enjoy.

Lastly, I have two finished loveys available in my shop for $35 each. It is very rare for me to sell finished items. Don't miss your chance.




















I have many more things in the works for the coming days and weeks. Keep a look out :)

Another Pikachu Pattern

I've written yet another Pikachu pattern for you all. Enjoy :)

Assembly

Put safety eyes between rows 9 and 10, 8 sts apart. Sew ears on top of head, they should span between rows 4 and 7. With black yarn sew a nose on row 11 between eyes with the mouth below on row 12. Place the cheeks between row 11 and 15. About 11 stitches in between. On the body, attach arms between rows 11 and 14, 7 sts apart. Place feet at row 4, 7 sts in between. Sew two tails together to increase sturdiness. Sew tail on the back middle at the bottom. If your Pika is heaving trouble balancing the tail can help it steady. Sew stripes on back, above the tail at rows 10 and 12.
