Hiro The Sheep

This is Hiro from the anime show Fruits Basket. He represents the sheep or ram in the Chinese zodiac.


Materials: About half a skein of white GGH Aspen yarn, and small bits of peach and gray yarns

Body

Ch 3

R1 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook

R2 2 sc in each sc around

R3 (2sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc) around

R17 sc around

R18 (dec2tog, sc in next sc) around

R19 dec2tog around

R20 dec2tog around (you only dec2tog 3 times)

Finish off leaving a tail of yarn big enough to sew the top together. There should be a hole big enough to stuff the sheep.

Tip: You may already know this, but for all who haven't done this before, don't stuff the sheep right away. Wait until you have everything sewed on and then stuff it.

R2-3 sc in each sc across, turn *no turning ch from this point on*

Tip: To sew on the ears, I took the tail from the tip of the ear, sewed down the edge of the ear, and then sewed the ear onto the body with that tail.

After you've sewn everything on the body, take the tail you left and sew up the hole in the top of the head.

Masha (From Toyko Mew Mew)





Ok, for the main body, I used Lion Brand Fun Fur, Soft Pink, and for everything else I used Vanna's Choice yarn, a little bit of white but mainly light and dark pink. The Fun Fur was hard to work with because I couldn't see if I was skipping any stitches, and I was, so you can either use a stitch marker so you don't mess up or just count the number of stitches you do and freestyle it like I did...

R1 5 dc (double crochet) into 2nd ch from hook, finish off



Sew on the eyes and ears acording to the picture. You can, of course, change the placement.






Tail and Arms




I crocheted right into the body when I did these. Take a long peice of yarn, fold it in half, stick your hook through a hole in the crocheting where you want the tail to be, and pull the folded end of the yarn through. Chain 12, with the two strands of yarn, or however long you want your tail to be. Do the same for the arms, except when you're done, finish off and tie a square knot with the two strands of yarn and cut the extra yarn off. then tuck the square knot into a hole in the crocheting so that it stays flat. I hope I made sense.







Tohru (In Riceball Form)





Onigiri (Riceball) Tohru





I'm SOO sorry if the pattern isn't clear. It's hard to explain, but if you just look at the picture, you should be able to figure it out.







Onigiri (Riceball) Tohru







This is a really easy pattern. All there is to do is crochet 2 triangles and one band to go in between. The triangles are the front and back, and the band makes up the sides






Triangle (make two) DON'T USE A TURNING CHAIN




ch 12


R1 1 sc in each st across, turn (11)


R2 1 sc in each sc across, turn (10)


R3 1 sc in each sc across, turn (9)


R4 1 sc in each sc across, turn (8)

R7 1 sc in each sc across, turn (5)


R8 1 sc in each sc across, turn (4)


R9 1 sc in each sc across, turn (3)


R10 1 sc in each sc across, turn (2)


R11 1 sc in each sc across, turn (1)


finish off





Band




note: fold in the triangles' corners about 1/3-1/2", so that the triangle is slightly rounded. with both triangles parallel to each other and good sides (the ones w/o the corners) facing in, the band should be able to go in between the triangles and make the sides. See the picture. Adjust the band so it fits.



To make the pattern a little more clear, I made another Tohru with a different colored band. The sides I refer to are the white triangles, the band I refer to is the fuzzy blue strip.


ch5


R1-33 sc in each sc across (4)





Yet another note: You might not want to tie off the band right now so you can adjust it later in case it doesn't fit.





To put together, put the right sides of the band and one triangle together and crochet along the edge. Always keep crocheting the same edge of the band to one triangle, and the other edge to the other triangle. Do 2 sides of the other triangle, but leave one side un-crocheted. Turn right-side-out. Sew on the face and mouth at this time. When the face and mouth are done, start stuffing and sew the remaining side together. Sorry if the instructions were unclear.



Here's a picture of the band and the side being crocheted together, I hope it helps:

Sorry about the messy blog. Geocities is shutting down, so I'm switching all my patterns to here. This is the first time I've ever blogged..... If you see a mistake in the pattern or just want to comment on it, you can e-mail me at bassethound04@yahoo.com and my Ravelry username is bassethound04

Sew everything together using the picture as a guide. I sewed the tail on a little to the left and it angled a to the left a little. It doesn't look too good from the back, but from the front it looks really cute.
