Gatomon digivolved toooo... by YarnHoardingDragon Gatomon digivolved toooo... by YarnHoardingDragon
Gatomon.

Well I finished her Cat-liner. I need to add a little bit more black woving since there are a few patches that just need a little bit more.

Hope you all enjoy :D

Cristism would be helpful :D

Mad props for crocheting with 'fun' yarn like that!!! I've used yarn like that before and regretted it every stitch. I can't believe you make most of your amigurumi out of it!!

She looks super cute and cuddly! The only suggestion I have would be to make the whiskers stand on their own, I would try chaining stitches until your happy with the length and cast off (or make a magic ring of 4-5 stitches in a fingering or sport weight yarn and crochet in the round until your happy with the length) and slip a very thin piece of wire into it, or crochet around the wire (I use wire that is about the size that the wire a staple is made out of) and sew on!

Haha thank you, it's my favorite yarn and I love that you can't see my stiches as well as the fact you have to look at it twice to realize it crocheted, and people who don't even know crochet usually don't realize it's crocheted.

And thank you again, OMG I really should! I thought about doing that since these whiskers feel like they are going to fall out if someone pulls them out since there is nothing really keeping them in. What kind of wire do you recommend? Since I typically just use pipe cleaners since they are cheap and easy to find as well as help the fact that they aren't pointy and punch through my stitches. Thank you very much for the super helpful tip :hug:

I stopped using pipecleaners because I found they were a little too bendy and were impossible to actually push into place, because they would just bend instead of going straight. I work in a Print Shop and there is a high duty stapler (it uses wire on a roll instead of individually cute staplers, like an office stapler.) The wire roll was just about gone, so one of the guys asked me if I could use it in my crafts, and I started using it and I love it! It's a little bit more stronger than a pipe cleaners and slides oh-so nicely down a really long crocheted leg or tail. I haven't had it poke out yet, but I work pretty small and the stitches are pretty tight. If you use some wool yarn, and make a really long crocheted tube, put the wire in and then felt it, it might stop the poking too.

That's true, that is why I braid my pipe cleaners making it a bit stronger and not so easy to bend and less kinky. Dang, high duty staplers sounds scary :XD:, but that is incredible! Do you know what the wire is called? Or how thick it is? But fantastic :D I really need to do this now! I also need to find my lighter weight yarn so it will be tiny and thin :3 Just like whiskers :D But what do you mean by felt it? Like felt the wool tube so it closes more on it's self and becomes sturdier?

I'm not sure what the wire is called, but it's a little bit more thicker than a regular staple. I bet if you go to Home Depot (or a hardware store) you'll be able to find some thin, but strong wire.

I was just thinking that if you felted a crocheted tube, it be be strong enough that you don't even need the wire. Instructions on how to felt a knitted/crocheted piece are here [link] basically you wash the piece in hot hot water and the fibres start to intermingle with each other and it becomes like a stronger piece of felt. You can only do this with real wool though.

Yep haha I use a super fluffy yarn which hides stitches, but if you held it you could feel it's crocheted. :D Thank you very much!

It's epic either way. I struggle with getting the patience to finish even small crocheted toys, so your stuff just astounds me. :)

OMG that's really sweet of you to say :D, I do have a rather strong patience, there have been many times when I have to re crochet something over and over again just to get it right >.<

:iconohstopityouplz: She does indeed, a lot more profession and ready for the day!

I agree, I just now noticed that I really should have used a darker blue since she has a deep blue color but I can do what I want! :la:

OMG I do the same but then I list everything that is wrong with it then most of the time he agrees after he says if you didn't point it out I wouldn't have noticed :XD: Then I know I'm a failure. :iconruncryplz:

My friends and boyfriend always tell me that! I mean when we crochet, we ourselves can tell what's wrong and the people who don't would be like I can't even tell! :XD: And then it would just annoy me and I go back and fix it -___-

LOL. We're the same! It is very true, but I've always have been my worst critic and swift to talk down about my art or whatever. I have been constantly told just to keep it to myself but I'm to honest and humble to just accept it most of the time -__- Since I noticed Cleffa's ears are to big...and I still haven't fixed them but every day I'm like...yeah I should fix those -___- or else no one is going to buy it...plus how can I be an artists and allow such horrid-ness be sold :icononionfailplz:

Nah, they all have the simple triangle points on their eyes. I can't remember but maybe she had the Egyptian eyes when she digivolved into Nefertimon. Hey, I went to go look for yarn today, where do you get all the pipsqueak yarn from? Everywhere I looked, plus the online shops I know, only had white, blue, pink and multicolors. I couldn't find a lime green(or any green for terriermon) anywhere. I didn't even try to find colors for raichu. Do you know where I can get the green you used for Tree Trunks?

They do, and now I know it would be super weird if they didn't have thick eyeliner :o. It really helps with the cute levels! I get mine from JoAnne's but I'm aware they don't have a huge selection online, which is weird since they sell it in stores. And the only place I'm aware of that even mentions it's existent is raverly. I also recommend using vanilla, which is the off white pipsqueak. Again I've only seen them and bought them in stores. But yeah I don't know why they are such a mysterious yarn since as far as I can tell they are a hit. -__- I can say if I get the chance I can buy some from my local JoAnnes to give to you if you can't find any other source.

Even now I tend to draw eyes in a didimon-similar way lol always with the smaller eyeshines and a bit of a triangle corner like they have. I really like the way it looks on Biyomon. Hmm, I will try to go back to Joanns next week and see if they have it. They didn't have a lot of colors, but what they had they had in a lot of different brands that even hobby lobby doesn't have. Plus I think they are still having a sale on a lot of the yarn stock. If I cant find it I will let you know! I have some money on my paypal just waiting to be spent lol

That is super cool :) I remember drawing my eyes like that for a long time but then I got into other animes so my eyes are all over the place. I would also suggest that you talk to an employee if you can't find one to ask if they can specifically get you one, and possibly hold it for you. I usually only find brown, yellow, and green when they first re-stock. I'm having trouble finding brown at the moment which is rather bugging me since I want to make Entai from Pokemon :XD: As well as just have some brown on hand. :XD: It's true, although Hobby Lobby has a few yarns they don't have but mostly because those brands are made by Hobby Lobby. I prefer JoAnne's mostly since it's cheaper (since I have a member discount since I go there so often haha.) While Hobby Lobby seems to be more expensive usually, and Micheal's usually has a rather small, and unimpressive selection. I'll probably ask you how to do all those things if it comes down to me sending you one :XD: I'm still figuring out my account and how to do things.
