Wootteo Tutorial

I have a new tutorial on YouTube to make this adorable character from The Astronaut, a song by Jin of BTS. I fell in love with Wootteo the second I saw it and couldn’t resist crocheting my own. I ended up with two versions of the doll, one crocheted with light yarn and the other one with medium-sized yarn. I also made modifications to the head (the first version is crocheted vertically, and the other, horizontally). The tutorial I uploaded on YouTube is for the second version, which I liked the best.

The doll is about 8 inches tall, crocheted with a 2.75mm hook. The instructions are quite easy (single crochet, increase and decrease). I used felt for the face and used a printing of the original doll to cut it. It’s a great project for beginners who understand the basics. it’s a really fun and easy project.

My Wootteo has joined my Jin doll and they now keep each other company! They both wear pigtails inspired by the Squid Game doll so they match perfectly!

I hope you will enjoy this tutorial. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments. Happy crocheting!

New Tutorial on YouTube

I started the year with a crochet tutorial that was highly requested on my YouTube, a little Jin doll in RJ costume. This is the last doll of the Bangtan series I started at the beginning of last year. Initially, I was going to make all of them in their animal emoji costume but after doing a poll a majority voted for RJ instead of the hamster emoji.

The tutorial is very easy, you just need basic knowledge of crochet stitches such as single crochet, increase and decrease. It is best to use the same yarn for all the pieces or the proportions might not fit (especially for the head and hoodie). I hope you will enjoy this pattern and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me!

Happy crocheting!

Squid Game Jin and Super Tuna

I went to the BTS concert at Sofi on Sunday. I had such a blast that I decided to crochet something to keep as memorabilia of those good times. I had several ideas but Jin’s appearance with his Squid Game pigtails won me over, so as soon as I came home I gathered all the yarn I needed to get started. It took me 5 days to complete it, but I am glad it kept me busy because it kept me away from PCD (Post Concert Depression) lol. I think it turned out really cute!

But I wasn’t about to stop there. Just when I was about to resume my regular activities Super Tuna came out. It gave me the idea to create a fish pattern which I will make available on ETSY. It’s my first time making a fish, I don’t know why I never thought about it before!

So now that I have a Tuna fish and a Squid Game version of Jin, it’s only natural that I would pair them together as a set. Here is Seokjinnie the Super Tuna Rider and his pet.

Now I just need to edit the pattern I have written for the fish. I will upload and post about it when it is available on ETSY. Happy crocheting!

A little Seokjinnie for Christmas

It’s been such a difficult year for all of us I don’t think anybody will miss 2020. To end the year with a smile and defy the gloomy days I made a little Seokjinnie doll that I gave away as a Christmas Special through Twitter. It’s one of my favorite dolls to date, so it was a little bittersweet to let it go. I also took that opportunity to challenge myself by trying a new technique to make the hair. It was not easy and took a lot of patience but the result was worth it.

Worldwide Handsome Seokjinnie

I think I spent more time on the hair than on the rest of the doll. I cut pieces of yarn then brushed the strands to chance the texture into hair (that took forever). Then, I flatten the hair with a flat iron and glued the pieces on the head, layers by layers. I had to play hairdresser to cut and style it the way I wanted to, and I had to take my time because I didn’t want to make any mistake. I love the result, the hair is soft and silky and it really enhance the look of the doll.

I made a print transfer of RJ for his sweater using a picture I found on google. I transferred it on white cotton fabric then glued the piece on the sweater. I think it turned out really cute!

I love the little sprout on his hair!

Little Seokjinnie is on its way to his new home, I will miss it but I think I will make more dolls using this pattern next year. I have a lot of projects on my list, especially for my YouTube channel. So I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year, good health and lots of joy in your life!
