#37: Vulpix

Just a quick note because it’s late and I’m tired.

So here’s Vulpix. Difficult for two reasons, the first being that there is no flipping pattern anywhere online as far as I can see (feel free to comment with links if you know better!). And I’m not paying for one because I think intellectual property rights are important – which is also why I don’t sell these, I give them away (I get so annoyed with people who sell Pokemon toys on Etsy, maybe you don’t realise it but it’s copyright infringement and NOT cool). Anyway, so I had to make my own.

I started with parts of Wolfdreamer’s Umbreon pattern, added a few bits of her Mew, found a pattern for a snail (which was basically: crochet a tube, coil it up), which loosely became the tail and mane. Added it all together and bam! an almost vaguely looking something not entirely dissimilar to a Vulpix, which went to Boston the next day with the friend for whom I’d hurriedly crocheted it. Oh yeah, had to do it in a week too. That was the second reason this one was so difficult.

I think, given time – lots of time – and being able to test things out, and maybe getting colours a bit closer to Vulpix’s own (impossible, seriously, just nothing like that available here!), I might stand a better chance another time, but this one is not quite a big fat fail, but definitely closer to it than I’d’ve liked.
