Hey y'all! I'm having a few issues with the layout/template here on the blog. It seems this one is not compatible anymore and so it periodically tries to change it. I'll do some work in the next week or so and change the template so if you have any issues, fear not, I'll have it back up and going in no time! Feel free to email me at WolfdreamerOTH@gmail.com if you need to access something and it doesn't seem to work!

All pages and patterns of this site can now be translated by using the 'Translate this Page' Gadget at the top of the right hand column of every page. Hopefully this will help many of you who are more comfortable reading in your native language. :D


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.

Rowlet Pokemon Crochet Plush Free Pattern



Ok,  finally got this one typed out.  Those of you on my Facebook page got a sneak peek at this little cutie over the weekend - and while I'd intended to have it up before now,  well,  life happens.  LOL   

This is the second in a row of the new starter pokemon for Sun/Moon  so you can very likely make a guess as to what's coming up next......  :)

Have fun with Rowlet!   As usual, if you find anything wrong  (as does happen)  just either post here in the comments,  or email me at linda@wolfdreameroth.com .  


ROWLET

MATERIALS:

WW yarn in beige, white, pumpkin (dark orange) and green
Crochet hook size US G (4.00 mm)
Stuffing
Felt pieces in white and black
Tapestry needle
Sewing needle and thread in white and green
A wee bit of patience (optional but highly recommended)

NOTES:

This pattern is likely better suited to at least an advanced beginner or intermediate crocheter. There are a few unusual maneuvers in this one so read each section through completely before you get started and keep in mind whats coming up as you work.

As most of you know I'm not very good at 'faces' you can likely come up with a better shape for the eye base than I did (I was also out nearly of white felt and that was the only piece I had left other than teeny bits for catch lights in the eyes *scribbles notes on shopping list* )

The wings are going to seem very 'heavy' and thick as you complete them....we want this so that they will 'stand up' instead of flop over when sewn to the body.

When changing colors:

At end of round: in the final stitch of the round, insert hook into stitch and draw up a loop (2 loops of old color on hook), drop old color and draw new color through both loops on hook. If joining, then join round using new color and continue.

This will make even/jogless color changes in your work.


BODY

Rnd 1: 7 sc in magic ring (7)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (14)
Rnd 3: *sc in sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat * to * (21)
Rnd 4: * sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc * , repeat * to * (28)
Rnd 5: * sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc * , repeat * to * (35)
Rnd 6: * sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc * , repeat * to * (42)
Rnd 7-15: sc in each sc of the round , {change to white in last stitch of round 15} (42)
Rnd 16: *sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc * , repeat * to* (35)
Rnd 17: *sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc *, repeat * to * (28)
(begin stuffing at this point if you haven't already, stuff firmly without over stuffing, and continue to stuff as you go on)
Rnd 18: *sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc *, repeat * to * (21)
Rnd 19: *sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc * , repeat * to* (14)
Rnd 20: dec over next 2 sc, repeat around (7)

F/O, add any stuffing needed to round out the shape and close up the hole with the tail

WINGS (make 4)

(wings are worked back and forth instead of in the round)

Row 1: ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from the hook and each ch across, turn (4)
Row 2: 2 sc in first sc of row, sc in each remaining sc across, turn (5)
Row 3-6: repeat row 2 (9 sc at end of row 6)
* chain 6, half double crochet (hdc) in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, double crochet (dc) in next 2 chs. Skip 2 sc of row 6, sc in next sc *

repeat * to * twice more for a total of 3 'feathers'.

Take 2 of the wing pieces and place them 'nicest' side out (whichever looks nicest to you) and sc around the entire thing through both pieces. You may need to do increases on the outside corners to keep it flat.

GREEN 'Leaf' ON WINGS:

(also worked flat)

Row 1: ch 3, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next chain, turn (2)
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc of row , turn (4)
Row 3: 2 sc in first sc of row, sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in last sc, (6)

* chain 3, sc in 2nd chain from hook and next chain, skip one sc of row 3 and slip stitch in next sc *

Repeat * to * twice more for a total of three 'feathers'. F/O Sew to base of one side of a wing (refer to images for placement help)

BEAK:

(with white)

Row 1: chain 2, sc in 2nd chain from hook, turn (1)
Row 2: 2 sc in sc, turn (2)
Row 3: 2 sc in each sc of the row, change to pumpkin color in the last stitch of the row, turn (4)
Row 4: sc in each sc across, turn (4)
Row 5: draw up a loop though all four of the sc,. One at a time (dec 4) . You should have five loops on your hook. Draw a loop through all five loops at once (1)

F/O . Beak will likely need to be lightly stuffed and shaped as you sew it to the felt eye piece during assembly


FEET:

(using pumpkin)

Row1: chain 2, sc in last chain, turn (1)
Row 2: sc in sc, turn (1)
Row 3: 3 sc in sc (3)

* chain 3, sc in 2nd chain from hook and next ch, slip stitch in next sc of row 3*

Repeat * to * twice more for a total of 3 'talons'. F/O


LEAF BOWTIE:

(using green, make 2)

These two piece are worked on both sides of the chain.

Chain 5 slip stitch in second chain from hook, sc in next chain, hdc in next chain, 5 double crochet in last chain, turn work so that the original chain is now on top of the work and hook , working back across the chain, hdc in next loop of chain, sc, in next loop of chain, slip stitch in the last open loop of the chain. F/O and weave in the ends.

BACK FEATHER:

Chain 16, sc in 2nd chain from hook and each remaining chain across. turn (15)

*skip 2 sc, 5 dc in the next sc, skip 2 sc, sc in next sc * repeat * to * ending with a sc in the last sc.

F/O and weave in ends

TAIL: (green)

Chain 7, sc in 2nd chain from hook and each remaining chain across, turn (6)

next row: decrease over the first 2 sc, and then sc in each remaining sc across, turn (5)

repeat that last row till 2 sc remain in row.

F/O weaving in ends.

ASSEMBLY: I highly recommend pinning all the pieces in place before sewing so that you can adjust and perfect placement.

Assemble the body parts as shown. When placing the wings, they should placed so that the 'back feather' piece fits exactly between them. The tail is centered underneath that piece.

The feet are sewn with the front talons and the back talon left free.

Cut out a piece of white felt in a 'fat 8' shape (it might help here to Google images of rowlet and get an idea for the shape. It can vary, so make the exact shape you like best. Cut two ovals to sew on for the black part of the eye, and two very tiny pieces of white for catch lights in the eye. Sew the catch lites onto the black first (after pinning to get placement) because its far easier than after it's on the doll.

The nose is placed as shown over the center area of the white felt 'fat 8' piece.

Wings can be adjusted to any position that you find pleasing. (again, Google images for ideas cause there are many).
