Cuppy The Alien




***

Cuppy the Alien

***

So I have been shamefully neglecting my blog, but I have put up a new pattern for all of you. I was inspired to make an alien from an amigurumi along in Raverly! I hope you enjoy the pattern.

***

Materials= I colour of yarn, 2 safety eyes

Hook = Whatever you like! The smaller the hook & yarn the smaller your alien etc.etc.etc.

CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
ST= Stitch
FO = Finish Off
DEC = Decrease

***

Feet (make one)

Foundation = Magic ring 6 (if you don’t know what a magic ring is please find a tutorial here. This is the tutroial I learnt from and it is awesome ^_^)
Round 1= 2 SC in each ST around
Round 2= 1 SC in the next ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 3= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Rounds 4 -7= SC around ((Don’t forget to stuff the foot!))
Round 8= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 9= 1 SC in the next 1 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 10= DEC around - till 6 st left
Round 11-17= SC around

Now make one more foot(2 in total now), however do not FO!

Now CH 6 with the second foot at the end of round 17...

Round 18= Attach the foot with the CH6 to the other foot with a SC. Now SC around the entire thing (both legs and the little bridge connecting them.
Round 19-25= SC around
Round 26+= 1 SC in the next 1 ST then DEC till you only have 6 ST ((Don’t forget to stuff the body!))

***
Head

Continuing from your body & legs piece….

Round 1= 2 SC in each ST around
Round 2= 1 SC in the next ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 3= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 4= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 5= 1 SC in the next 4 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 6-12= SC around ((Putting in your safety eyes here is a good idea!))
Round 13= 1 SC in the next 4 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 14= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 15= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then DEC - do this till end of round ((Don’t forget to stuff!))

Arms (make 2)

Foundation = Magic ring 6
Round 1= 2 SC in each ST around
Round 2= 1 SC in the next ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 3= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 4= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 5-11= SC around
Round 12= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 13= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then DEC - do this till end of round ((Don’t forget to stuff!))
Round 14= 1 SC in the next 1 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 15-27= SC around
FO and flip one side of the little ball you have for the hand in. This forms the little cup for his hands. If you want to you can add a little stitch to keep it together, but there is really no need.

***
Sew everything together and there you go your own little cuppy alien.

Optional - To make the arms move – When sewing the arms to the body first thread a single piece of wire through the body, place the arms over it & sew them to the body.
