Crochet Mothim by Blisca Crochet Mothim by Blisca

Hi guys,

as you may or may not have read in my journal, I promised you a second upload for this week!
So one of you suggested making a mothim and so I did!

I'm personally not really that much of a bug user in pokemon, so I've never used a mothim in game.
Maybe I'll try using one some day! But I really got to like his design after making this.

I hope you'll enjoy it, and feel free to use the pattern below to make your own mothim. If things are unclear in the pattern or you have a suggestion for my next project please leave a comment!



Mothim:


Materials:

Black, orange and yellow yarn.

Crochet hook, I used 2,50 mm myself.

A yarn needle.

Stuffing


Head:

Rnd 1: sc 6 in magic ring (6)

Rnd 2: sc 2 in each sc (12)

Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)

Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)

Rnd 5: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (30)

Rnd 6-11: sc in each sc around (30)

Rnd 12: sc in next 3 sc, dec over next sc around (24)

Rnd 13: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next sc around (18)

Rnd 14: sc in next sc, dec over next sc around (12)

At this point start filling the head with stuffing.

Rnd 15: dec over each 2nd sc (6)


Body:

With black.

Rnd 1: sc 6 in magic ring (6)

Rnd 2: sc 2 in each sc (12)

Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)

Switch to orange.

Rnd 4-7: sc in each sc around (18)

Switch back to black.

Rnd 8-9: sc in each sc around (18)

Rnd 10: sc in next 7 sc, dec next (16)


Nose

Rnd 1: sc 6 in magic ring (6)

Rnd 2: sc 2 in each sc (12)

Fold the circle and sew the bottom 1/3 to 1/2 together, sew the rest to the face.


Eyes:

ch 5, sc 4 back.


Feelers/antennae:

At each switch of color I cut the yarn and tie it together with the new color.

Rnd 1: start with white and sc 4 in magic ring, switch to orange and sc 4 in magic ring (8)

Rnd 2: switch to white and sc 2 in next 4, switch to orange repeat (16)

Rnd 3: switch to white sc in next, sc 2 in next sc x4, switch to orange and repeat (24)

Leave the last strand of orange long. Fold the circle so the top half is orange and the bottom half white. Use the long strand of orange to sew the orange half together. 

With white yarn, ch 6 and leave a long strand of yarn. Use this long strand to attach to the bottom half of the circle and close the white part.

To try and make both feelers symmetrically I switched the colors in the pattern for the other feeler.

I'm glad you like it. For now there are no people requesting things so if you like feel free to request other things. Also do you have a tutorial or a pattern for the curving tubes? I've tried a few things myself but they never worked out the way I wanted them to.

hmmmm, maybe a cacturne or tropius. I kno, more pokemon but I like their anatomy and find it more amusing to crochet them. yeah, the tubes are quite simple. its not a sudden sharp turn (for those I just make separate tubes) it is a more like a curve you see in pipe work for a house. This is the best way I know how. If you have other ideas please share.
The pattern works best when there is an even number of stitches but its not the end of the world with odd numbers.
Lets assume you have 36 stitches in a round. Half of the round is going to be half double crochets and the other is going to be slip stitches, each half is connected with a single crochet. So for 36 stitches you would slip stitch 17, sc 1, hdc 17, sc 1. if you have an odd number just get rid of a slip stitch. The more times you do this the more the tube angles. It can be quite difficult to get into the slip stitches so what I like to do is get a smaller hook to pull up the loop. My favorite crochet hook to use with worsted weight is a 3.75mm and for the slip stitches a 2.25mm. I put the 2.25 in the slip stich, pull up a loop, take the hook out, put the 3.75 back in, then slip stitch so the stitches stay consistent. Its very simple but so effective.
