PuppyCat

If you haven’t seen the Bee and PuppyCat short on Cartoon Hangover youtube channel yet, I highly recommend it. It’s so cute and funny! The creator – Natasha Allegri – worked on Adventure Time along with other Cartoon Hangover members. And thanks to a successful kickstarter, there are new episodes coming out on November 6th.

This pattern is nice and simple, works up quickly and looks so cute!

You will need:

  • 3.00mm crochet hook
  • white yarn
  • light brown yarn
  • black yarn
  • black thread
  • polyester filling

If you’re unclear on how to read my patterns head over the FAQ. There’s also a link there to a photo-tutorial of all the stitches and techniques I use. 🙂

That’s all of the crocheting done, now it’s time for assembly!

Stuff the head, body and legs. The arms, ears and tail are too small and don’t need any stuffing to maintain their shape. I like to pin all of the pieces in place to make sure they look good before using the tails to attach them.

image

I usually attach the legs, then tail, then arms, before embroidering the face on and attaching the head. Take a length of black yarn and embroider the eyes and nose. The top of the eyes come out of row 10 and go back into row 12. The nose is on row 12 as well. There are about 4 stitches between the nose and the eyes on either side.

Then take a length of thinner black thread and embroider the mouth in a small upside “V” from the centre of the nose. Last thing left for the face is to take a length of the light brown yarn and embroider on the eyebrows.

image

Once the face is done, attach the head and then the ears. I like to attach the head before the ears because it’s easier to find the right placement for the ears. They always end up wonky if I do it first.

Then all that’s left to do is attach the collar and bell. Use the tails of the collar to attach it, the ends will be at the front and will get covered up by the bell.

Done!
