Gudetama Lazy Egg Free Crochet Pattern

Gedetama or lazy egg is a cute character from Sanrio. If you ever see some plushies or squishy that have this sleepy face on yellow background, it probably Gudetama. He has many postures to begin with, but I chose the basic sitting posture for this pattern. I am also considerate of making more gudetama in different postures in the future since he is really fast to make and have the same expression on his face.





This pattern is really fast and easy to make. The pattern was written in crochet standard American term.

4 ply worsted weight yarn, I used local brand named "Eagle"
3.5mm. hook, I used 6/0 Japanese tulip hook.

sc- single crochet

2017 Announcement!!

Hello friend!!

     It's 2017, and I have little announcement about my Youtube channel. If you have been follow me for a while I said that I will upload at least 2 tutorials videos per month. I have a little sad news, I will change it to at least 1 doll tutorials videos per month. I know it doesn't sound good for any of you who looking forward for new tutorial. Due to my study circumstance now, my first semester grade was coming out very BAD, that my adviser also concern. So I decide I have to pay attention to my study more!

     Since doll tutorial video usually took me about 2 weeks to make them. I think I will change to 1 video per month, for the doll. And do some more small crochet project like bookmark or accessory which require less time on filming and also shorter pattern. I also thinking about live stream crochet(so I don't have to do editing things) but after testing with my phone I realize that with live streaming, my camera(phone) cannot focus on the yarn, and stitches are really hard to see. And I don't have budget for better camera. So I come up with above conclusion.

     I hope you understand, I will try my best to organize my time for both crochet and study!

With Love

Makkachin - Yuri!!! on ice - Free crochet pattern

It's a poodle dog, his name is Makkachin! This little dog from anime Yuri on ice, is so precious. So I decide to crochet him. This finished doll's body is a little shorter than the one in picture, but it my intention to do that! I think smaller body Makkachin is more suitable as a key chain that the long body one. :D

Picture from http://yurionice.wikia.com

At first, I was thinking about using some fluffy yarn. But after thinking thoroughly, if I do that, how can people seeing the stitches!? So I change back to my usual yarn. I try my best to find the most similar yarn color that I have in my stock, still a little bit more yellow side.

He's harder than I thought he would be, especially his cheek! But in the end I manage to finished him and share this pattern with you guys. Hope you enjoy!

Tongue
3 ch, sc in the 2nd ch from hook, sc in next chain.
Fasten off.

Tongue is very small, you can alternatively cut red felt sheet then sewing instead.

Nose
3 ch, sl in the 2nd ch from hook, sl in next chain.
Fasten off.

The same way with tongue, I feel like Makkachin's nose should be smaller than this, so if you have felt sheet you can cut it into the shape of dog's nose and glue it, instead of crochet it like me.

After finished crochet every parts, sew them together. Or if you not familiar with sewing, you can also gluing them. But be careful not to put too much glue, so it not clearly visible and reduce chance to dirty other part.

If you want a bigger version of him, easiest way is to increase the yarn size and hook size. Or if you don't want to by new yarn, use the same yarn but crochet 2 strand of yarn together at the same time with bigger hook. Modify the pattern is also an option, but in this case please give some credit to this original post of Mkkachin.

That's it! If you have any question or trouble during crochet him, comment here or under the tutorial video, I will answer with the best I can. See you next post.
