Pokémon "Psyduck"

pattern

Psyduck is my second try to create a pattern of a pokémon. I find him quite cute, and for these of you how want to try it yourself, I provide my pattern here.

  

Pattern

6 sc into a Magic Ring (= 6st)

R2

inc each sc (= 12st)

[1 sc, 1 inc sc] repeat till end of round (= 18st)

R4

R28 [1 sc, 1 dec sc] repeat till end of round (= 24st)
R29 back loop only: decrease each sc (= 12st)

I filled it after R29, if yours is smaller, I would suggest to start around R15 and continue filling as you crochet.

eyes: I set the eyes between R7 and R8 with a gap of 4 stiches.

R2
  • 1 sc in the second chain from the hook
