Shooky Halloween Version

I uploaded a tutorial to make a Halloween version of Shooky. The base (body, arms, and legs) are the same as the original Shooky Tutorial, I just added wings and horns and changed the colors. I think it’s a really cute Halloween edition and I hope you will have fun making it!

Happy crocheting!

Shooky video tutorial

I uploaded the first part of my Shooky crochet tutorial on Youtube. I am doing this in two parts because I didn’t want the video to be too long. I am currently working on the second one and it will be uploaded in a couple of days. I hope you will enjoy it and if you have any questions, or suggestions don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments section of YouTube. Happy crocheting!

A year in review

Today is the last day of the year. I cannot believe a decade has passed and that we starting a new era. This year has been very good to me, I have been very blessed. I am leaving 2019 behind but with a smile and wonderful memories.

I did not realize how much work I have done in 2019 until I started a collage of all the dolls I crocheted throughout the year. I have grown a lot through practice and perseverance and I am looking forward to more project in the year to come. I made a montage of all my 2019 projects to give me a perspective of the amount of work I have done and I have concluded that I am definitely obsessed with crochet LOL.

The first montage includes a lot of the dolls I made from my drawings. I am not an artist but drawing helped me visualize what I wanted to do before-hand. I really enjoyed the process, and my goal in 2020 is to improve my drawing skills. I really like the Chibi genre, so I think I will continue to make this kind of doll amongst other things.

The second montage includes the BTS/BT21 fan art projects I crocheted either for my own collection or giveaways on Twitter. One thing you don’t know about me is that I am a big fan of Korean culture and entertainment, from the music to films and K-dramas. BTS is my fav band and I go absolutely gaga for the BT21 characters associated with them. I made a Koya, Chimmy and Shooky, all giveaway gifts through Twitter.

I am looking forward to what 2020 will bring. I have tons of ideas brewing in my head and I cannot wait to get back to crochet after this Holidays break. In the meantime I want to wish you all a Happy New Year, good health and happiness! 🙂

Shooky Crochet Pattern

The video version of this pattern is now available on YouTube https://missdolkapots.wordpress.com/2020/05/18/shooky-video-tutorial/

I love BT21 characters, they are so cute and lovable. I recently crocheted a Shooky for a giveaway, he is the easiest character to crochet out of all of them. I thought it would be great idea to upload my pattern for those who would like to have fun making their own. It is a very easy project and I think beginners will enjoy it a lot.

For this pattern you will need:

  • 2 balls of yarn of different shade of browns (mine is almond and dark brown)
  • Felt: brown, black and white
  • 2.75mm hook
  • fiberfill for stuffing
  • yarn needle
  • glue gun, or fabric glue

Abbreviations:

  • ch = chain
  • rnd = round
  • sc = single crochet
  • inc = increase
  • dec = decrease
  • st = stich

BODY:
With brown yarn, make a *magic ring
Rnd 1: 6 sc in center of the ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, inc] 6 times (18)
Rnd 4: [2 sc, inc] 6 times (24)
Rnd 5: [3 sc, inc] 6 times (30)
Rnd 6: [4 sc, inc] 6 times (36)
Rnd 7: [5 sc, inc] 6 times (42)
Rnd 8: [6 sc, inc] 6 times (48)
Rnd 9: sc in each st around (48)
Rnd 10: 19 sc, inc, sc, inc, sc, inc, 19sc, inc, sc, inc, sc, inc (54)
Rnd 11 to 20: sc in each st around (54)
Rnd 21: 19 sc, dec, sc, dec, sc, dec, 19sc, dec, sc, dec, sc, dec (48)
Rnd 22: sc in each st around
Rnd 23: [6 sc, dec] 6 times (42)
Rnd 24: [5 sc, dec] 6 times (36)
**Start stuffing the body with fiberfill and continue along the way.
Rnd 25: [4 sc, dec] 6 times (30)
Rnd 26: [3 sc, dec] 6 times (24)
Rnd 27: [2 sc, dec] 6 times (18)
Rnd 28: [1 sc, dec] 6 times (12)
Rnd 29: dec 6 times (6)
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Embroider the rest of of the thread into each front loop of the remaining stitches. Pull the string to close the hole.

*if you don’t know how to make a magic ring, here is a YouTube tutorial:
** do not stuff the body too much, you don’t want it to turn it into a round ball.

ARMS (make 2):
With dark Brown yarn, 4 st in ch
Rnd 1: 2 sc, inc, turn to the other side of the chain, 2 sc (6)
Rnd 2: [inc, 2 sc] 2 times (8)
Rnd 3: [inc, 3 sc] 2 times (10)
Rnd 4: sc in each st around (10)
Rnd 5: [inc, 4 sc] 2 times (12)
Rnd 6: sc in each st around (12)
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Stuff the arms lightly and sew them to each side of the body.

LEGS (make 2):
With dark Brown yarn, 6 st in ch
Rnd 1: 4 sc, inc, turn to the other side of the chain, 3 sc, inc (11)
Rnd 2: inc, 10 sc (12)
Rnd 3: sc in each st around (12)
Rnd 4: [inc, 5 sc] 2 times (14)
Rnd 5: sc in each st around (14)
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Stuff the legs lightly and sew them to each side of the body.

Now you just need to cut the pieces to make the mouth, teeth, eyes and eyebrows. Glue everything on the face, you can use a pic of Shooky as a guide. (I put everything on the face before using the glue)

If you have any questions about this tutorial, don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments, I will do my best to answer if you have any problems following the pattern.

Happy crocheting!
