It's been forever, but that's probably b/c I moved and now have no internet. Hooray for free Wifi and donated laptops! My Etsy shop (La Blue Gyrl Art, etc.) is on Facebook (What isn't?) facebook.com/labluegyrl Pill-chan also has her own FB page @ facebook.com/pillchan and of course you can follow me on Twitter.com @dopefaerie.
So blah blah blah, life is life and arts and crafts are good... so here's a Free Crochet Pattern! Enjoy!
Amigurumi Water Sprite / Rain Drop Crochet Pattern
Used: "F" Hook (3.50mm)
Sport/Light/Baby Weight Yarn in Baby Blue
6mm Solid Black Eyes (2)
Form a "magic ring"
1 - sc x6, tighten ring gently (06)
2 - 2 sc in each sc (12)
3 - (sc, inc) around, mark the last stitch with a bit
of yarn, sl sts are not used. (18)
4 - (2 sc, inc) around (24)
5 - (3 sc, inc) around (30)
6-8 - sc around (30)
9 - (3 sc, dcr) around (24)
10 - sc around (24)
11 - (2 sc, dcr) around (18)
12 - sc around (18)
13 - (1 sc, dcr) around (12)
At this point, add the eyes wherever you decide the face is, between rows 7 & 8 and about 4 stitches apart (or wherever you may please!). Take a bit of stuffing and flatten it with your fingers; place this stuffing at the bottom of your Sprite. Pour in a small layer of the polybeans, for weight. Add more stuffing to desired squishiness or not squishiness.
14 - sc around (12)
15 - (1 sc, dcr) around (08)
16 - sc around, add more stuffing (08)
17 - dcr around (04)
Finish off with a sl st (if possible), close off. Tuck in loose ends/marker yarns, using your hook. If desired, use the butt of the hook to also add more stuffing. Shape if needed with your fingers, curving the tip of the Sprite (as shown) if desired. Enjoy!
