Baby Vaporeon (with pattern) by aphid777 Baby Vaporeon (with pattern) by aphid777

I've been putting off typing up this pattern because of all the weird little pieces.  Hopefully it turns out not super confusing.. ^^;

Eyes and dark blue head pattern are needle felted onto the surface of the work: simple tutorial-->Needle Felted Eyes: A basic picture tutorial by aphid777

(Size F hook and worsted weight yarn for all parts)

Head:

1.  Magic ring: 6
2.  Inc around (12)
3.  [Sc, inc] around (18)
4.  [Sc 2, inc] around (24)
5.  [Sc 3, inc] around (30)
6.  [Sc 4, inc] around (36)
7-11.  Sc around 5 times (36)
12.  Sc 8, inc, sc, inc, sc 14, inc, sc, inc, sc 8 (40)
13.  Sc around (40)
14.  Sc 11, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 11 (44)
15.  Sc around (44)
16.  Sc 11, dec, sc 18, dec, sc 11 (42)
17.  Sc 5, dec, sc 5, dec, sc 4, dec, 2, dec, sc 4, dec, sc 5, dec, sc 5 (36)
18.  [Sc 4, dec] around (30)
19.  [Sc 3, dec] around (24)
20.  [Sc 2, dec] around (18)
21.  [Sc, dec] around (12)
23.  Dec around (6)
24.  Fasten off (FO)

Note: The FO point should be approximately in the midline of the back of the head. Yes, it sort of matters because it should have subtle cheeks and a slight nose bulge.  Knowing where you are will help you stuff "strategically". 

-------

Tail and Body:
**The tail and body are all one piece.  You will need to crochet each piece of the tail fin separately and then combine and continue into the body.

Tail:
1.  Magic ring: 4
2.  [Sc, inc] around (6)
3.  [Sc, inc] around (9)
4.  [Sc 2, inc] around (12)
5.  [Sc 3, inc] around (15)
6.  [Sc 4, inc] around (18)
7-8.  Sc around 2 times (18)
9.  [Sc 4, dec] around (15)
10.  [Sc 3, dec] around (12)
11.  [Sc 2, dec] around (9)
12.  FO
Only fasten off for the first fin.  For the second fin, repeat steps 1-11 and then continue as follows:
13.  Sc, dec, sc, dec
This next step will connect the first and second fin together on one side.  Insert hook into a stitch on the first fin and continue as follows:
14.  Sc, dec, sc, dec, sc, dec
One side of the tail should be connected now.  Insert hook back into the stitch after the connection on the second tail and continue as follows:
15.  Sc, dec
Both fins should now be connected and you should have a continuous round of 12 stitches.
16.  Sc around (12)
17.  [Sc 3, inc] around (15)
18.  [Sc 4, inc] around (18)
19.  [Sc 5, inc] around (21)
20-22.  Sc around 3 times (21)
At this point, add as many stitches as necessary to make the beginning of your round at approximately the mid-line of the underside of the body.
23.  Sc 6, inc, sc 3, inc, sc 3, inc, sc 6 (24)
24.  Sc 5, inc, sc 4, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 4, inc, sc 5 (28)
25.  Sc around (28)
26.  Sc 6, inc, sc 5, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 5, inc, sc 6 (32)
27.  Sc 7, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 7 (36)
28.  Sc 8, inc, sc 7, inc, sc 2, inc sc 7, inc, sc 8 (40)

42.  Sc around (30)
43.  Sc 3, dec, sc 3, dec, sc 2, dec, sc 2, dec, sc 2, dec, sc 3, dec, sc 3 (24)
44.  Sc around (24)
45.  FO

(The FO point should be approximately in the midline of the underside of the body)

-------

Back Spikes:

1.  Ch 22, turn
Starting at the third chain from the hook:
2.  [Sl st, hdc, dc, sl st] repeat 5 times
3.  FO

-------

Collar:

**Before doing this step, it might be wise to assemble at least Vaporeon's head and body so that you can determine how long to make the collar around the head.

**The number of stitches you will need will be a multiple of 2 plus 1 additional stitch (ie. 18+1, 20+1, 26+1).  Chain and measure around the head to decide how many stitches to use.  I ended up using about 27 stitches.


1.  Ch 27 (or however many stitches you determined), turn
Start at second chain from the hook:
2.  Sc 26 (your number -1)
3. [ Sl st, (dc, tc, dc all in next stitch)] repeat [] to the end
4.  FO

-------

Head fins:

Ears: (make 2)
Yellow:
1.  Ch 5, turn
Start at second ch from hook after each row for the following steps until otherwise specified.
2.  Dc, sc 3, ch 1, turn (4)

3.  Sc 4, ch 1, turn (4)
4.  (Dc, hdc) in the same stitch, sc 2, ch 1, turn (5)
5.  Sc 4, (sc, dc) in the same stitch, ch 1, turn (6)
6.  (Dc, dc) in the same stitch, sc 5 (7)
7.  FO
Blue:
Insert hook in the corner of the longest edge and single crochet along the edge.

Head fin:
Yellow:
1.  Ch 7, turn
2.  Sl st, sl st, sc, hdc, dc ch 1, turn (5)
3.  Sl st, sc 2, hdc, (dc, dc) in the same stitch, ch 1, turn (6)
4.  Sc 4, sl st, sl st (6)
5.  Sl st one more on the edge to create a downward sloping of the fin
6.  FO
Blue:
Insert hook in the corner of the longest edge and single crochet along the edge.

Do you join each round with a sl st, then ch1 or just worked in continuous rounds? thanks,
These are amazing, going to make them all this week, with 2 strands of DK yarn to get them big enough to take up my whole fireplace mantle. And the needle felting is fantastic, I did not even know what it was until I saw this, so that's another craft I'll be taking up. Thank you so much for sharing these for free. You should sell patterns on ravelry, with such high quality they would sell themselves.

I work in continuous rounds :)  I'm flattered you think these patterns are good enough to be sold!  I have considered selling patterns, but since most of these are of copyrighted characters, I decided against it.  I also don't have much instruction on assembly ^^;  Thank you for such a nice comment!  I would love to see yours when you're all done! :la:

When creating the head, do you start with the dark blue and if so when would you switch to the light blue? Im just a little confused on that part, can't wait to make this. Awesome pattern.

The dark blue on the head is needle felted.  I hate changing colors so I usually avoid it when I can ^^;

Maybe I am going crazy, but I'm attempting the back spikes and in order to get 6 spikes (as in the picture) with each spike taking up 5 stitches and requiring 2 stitches for the first turn... Should the chain not be 32 instead of 22?

aphid777 Featured By Owner May 22, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I think the math should be right unless I'm going crazy too ^^;  If we omit the first 2 stitches, you'll have a total of 20 stitches left that you will use.  A pattern of: Sl st, hdc, dc, sl st requires 4 stitches so you should repeat it a total of 5 times (5 counting the first time you use it).  The first 2 skipped stitches should form a smaller spike compared to the others for a total of 6 spikes.  I hope that helps!

Maybe. o-o I may be going crazy... But I used 32 stitches and it filled up Vaporeon's back better (for my Vaporeon, at any rate).
