Crochet Sandslash by Blisca Crochet Sandslash by Blisca
My first try sandslash, self made up pattern. I love the outcome!

It's about 12x10 cm
I hope the pattern is readable since it's the first one I wrote for others to use. I would love to see all of your sandslashes if you choose to use this pattern. And please do leave a comment if something is wrong or difficult to understand in the pattern.

Rnd 5: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (32)

Rnd 3-4: sc in each sc around (12)

Rnd 1: sc 4 in magic ring (4)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (8)

Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (12)

Rnd 4-6: sc in each sc around (12)

Rnd 7: sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc (8)

I didn't fill the spikes or ears. Make 3 yellow as ears and horn between the ears. I made 33 brown spikes and made rows out of them on the back. You should try a little bit and see how many and in what order you want to put them. I recommend pinning them to the back first to try out and see how it looks.


Eyes:

If you want to make the eyes out of yarn like I did, I just made 6 sc in a magic ring and closed it of with a knot to make them.

Hey jut a quick question on this pattern, I've got as far as the white patch for the body I don't understand how to pattern goes from the chain to the round?

You start with a chain and then go round in circles around the chain to make an oval shape, so you work from end to end around. If there is anything else that you don't understand please ask me more specific by mentioning from which rnd you don't get it.

(Ik las net dat je Nederlands bent en dat legt net wat makkelijker uit)
Ik heb problemen met de spikes, als ik jouw patroon volg dan krijg ik hele kleine ronde vormpjes (het lijken net kleine pootjes) Ik krijg niet dezelfde vorm zoals op de foto. Ik heb het patroon al vier keer soort van aangepast en heb hem nu iets langer gemaakt maar ze zijn nogsteeds niet zoals ik ze zou willen, heb jij misschien tips of heb je het patroon ondertussen veranderd? Ik hoor graag van je, wil graag mijn sandslash afmaken :D

Het klopt inderdaad dat je een beetje een ronde punt krijgt, het zijn ovale vormen als je ze plat drukt. Ze moeten absoluut niet gevuld zijn. Er zijn drie dingen die misschien kunnen helpen. 1 daarvan is maar door een van de twee lussen van je steken werken inplaats van beide, daardoor krijg je een wat langwerpiger effect. Het tweede is dat voordat je de touwtjes van de punten daarbinnen werk er gewoon nog even flink aan trekken, zo trek je de punt er een beetje uit en kan je hem plat drukken aan een kant inplaats van dat de magic circle recht naar beneden hangt. Wat mij ten derde op viel toen ik zelf mijn sandslash maakte was dat het kon zijn dat de spikes van de ene kant er puntiger uit zien dan van de andere kant, probeer ze dus van verschillende kanten plat te drukken en kijken welke kan het mooiste staat.

Ik hoop dat een van deze tip voor je werk, zo niet laat het me dan weten dan kan ik misschien nog even met je verder denken. Succes met je Sandslash!

thank you! I am almost done, as of tonight, I only have the 33 brown spikes left to do and I'm done! the longer I spend on it, the cuter it becomes and it's getting more and more difficult to want to give it to him! haha, will probably have to make another for myself after christmas!

Yeah I always enjoy y the assembly the most, is becoming more complete and being able to see your end product is the best. It is my favourite pokemon too and personally I do think it's my best pattern. All those spikes are a lot of work but very worth it. What I did with the spikes was first make them and then put them on the back with pins so I could see if I'd spaced them out properly, this might help you too.

so do I! I struggle a lot with concentration, so I can't just sit and watch TV, so doing something fiddly like assembling all these parts is fantastic hahaha. I totally agree, this pattern is amazing and adorable, and I feel like I've learned a little from making him, so hopefully I'll one day be able to put these new-found techniques into making my own patterns so I can fill my flat with ridiculous amounts of pokemon :')
definitely! It's going to be a long time until I can face doing the spikes ever again though, but he looks SO good
I fit on 27 instead of 33 brown spikes, cant find any space for any more, but I think he looks good with them all pinned, so will sew them on and hopefully take some photos before going to bed

Idk if this is an error as I ddnt notice this before but crocheted the head this way any way but after round 16 I did a round of *2 sc, dec* around (18) then a round of *sc, dec* around (12) then a round of *dec* around (6) then sewed shut. cant believe I jus crochet the head like this without the pattern in front of me but it worked out. (almost done with the green sandslash)

just realized ur crochet works are inside out. they still look nice though. are u left handed? I am, but force myself to crochet right handed to keep things easier to understand in this right hand dominant world.

Blisca Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2014
Really is it? I just choose the side I prefer and I do not like the swirly stripy pattern that is on the other side so I choose to put this side out, but if you like you could do it with the other side out! ;) I am right handed.

hm, interesting. I could never crochet the opposite side out without my head exploding from trying to think backwards, I applaud ur ability to choose which way on a whim.

There is not. I made it up with the help from other patterns while I was making it. I wrote down simple notes of the pattern but didn't right it out all the way so I don't think it's usable for others whom have not made it before. I might try rewriting the pattern so others can use it.
