I know the picture is pretty bad but I had to take a picture quick before my husband left. I made a hook case using this pattern. I messed up in a few places though. :/
2-in-One PDF Crochet Pattern for Large Scalloped Edge and Lacy Fan Crochet Earrings, No. TH31E
Someone made a crocheted Pusheen and sells it on etsy, but I thought it’s rather expensive and so I made my own cute little Pusheen. It is really easy to make, so I decided to write it down. A pdf version with more photos and better information may follow soon.
So~ you need a light grey yarn and a corresponding hook. I don’t know what size my yarn is, but it fits a 2.0mm hook perfectly and my pusheen is only 4cm long (without the tail). Also, dark grey and black sewing thread, and black safety eyes or beads. I used 4mm safety eyes for mine. The stitches used are Single Crochet (sc), inc (increase) and dec (decrease).
Now for the Body~
Start with 6 sc in Magic Ring (6)
1) Inc every stitch (12)
2) sc in next stitch, inc (18)
3) sc in next 2 stitches, inc (24)
4) sc in next 3 stitches, inc (30)
5-18) sc in next 30 stitches (30); put on the eyes and sew on the nose, whiskers and stripes
19) sc in next 3 stitches, dec (24); begin stuffing
20) sc in next 2 stitches, dec (18)
21) sc in next stitch, dec (12)
22) dec (6)
23-28) sc in next 6 stitches (6); this will make the tail
Bind off and sew the hole closed.
The Ears~ (make 2)
5 Sc in Magic Ring
1) increase every stitch (10)
2) sc in next 10 stitches (10)
Bind off, leave a long tail and sew to the body.
That’s all :D I think it is very easy~
