Crocheted Odie! by aphid777 Crocheted Odie! by aphid777
Many, many hours, a couple re-do's, 4 blisters, and a bent yarn needle later.. Odie is born!

I accidentally made him too big (again with the scaling problems), but I was happy with how he turned out because he was so difficult to make > < His mouth and body are all made in one piece (probably the trickiest part of making him). I wanted him to look as accurate as possible while including his signature wide open mouth and tongue hanging out :)

I'm not sure if you are able to tell what you have done by looking at each round to see what you have done and try making a pattern from what you see you have done.  Like you, sometimes I get frustrated with my designs and just give up on writing it down after ripping out only for the millionth time.  I am able to see what I have done after I have completed my project and able to figure out what I did and write it down.  Maybe this will be of some help if you wanted to figure out your Odie pattern.  Good luck!

Thanks so much!  Sorry, but I don't have a pattern written for Odie! :(  He was too complicated so I ended up just making him free-hand.

I so admire your work.  I, too, love to crochet amigurumi.  There is just something about creating a still life creature that is so satisfying and so addicting.  I confess I think about it almost all the time.  Your talent far exceeds mine and I am so grateful that you would share your art.  You are an inspiration for me.  God bless you and your talents.

wow. he's amazing!

did you add structure inside the ears to keep them standing? or are they just stuffed more solidly?

aphid777 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks!! :) No, I didn't add any structure. I actually didn't have to stuff his ears that much to make them stay up.
