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!
