Shuppet


Happy Belated Halloween readers. I hope you all had a great day whether you celebrated or not. Shuppet was made for the October K/CAL on Pokemon Amigurumi. Its always been one of my favourite Pokemon.

Abbreviations

stst = Stockinette stitch. Knit being the right side and Purl being the wrong side.
Kfb = Knit front and back into a stitch to increase.
K2tog or P2tog = Knit or Purl 2 stitches together to decrease
B and T = break of yarn leaving a long end and thread through sts left on the knitting needle and pull tight to close the hole then fasten off
I-cord= Knitted on Dpn's. cast on stst then knit as normal, instead of turning to purl, push the stitches to the end of the dpn and knit again pulling the wool behind the stitches. After doing this for a few rows you will see the cord appearing, pull the cord to tighten the stitches.

If knitting in the round divide the stitches equally among the needles and when it says to Purl a row Knit instead. Stuff as you go.

Pin to the bottom of the head and sew in place. Sew threads round the bottom and middle of the head spike and pull tight and fasten in place.

Eyes make 2 (felt in Black, light blue, light purple and yellow.)

I cut a template out of paper for the black of the eye, I placed it on the black felt and cut that piece out. I then reused the paper template and drew the lines for the coloured pieces and then cut them out individually and cut out the corresponding colour. I then placed the three colours together on to the black background to check they all fit and then sewed the coloured pieces on with matching cotton. I then pinned the eyes to the body and sewed them on with black cotton.
