:bulletred: Yarn tails are becoming really popular, I'm seeing them everywhere now! I found the perfect yarn at my local craft store, so I had to try it out. Here's a tutorial showing exactly how I made my cat tail. Let me know if you have any questions!

:bulletred: Using the fur brush pulls out a lot of extra fluff. This is totally normal, and you can always save it to use as stuffing for plushies or what have you. It helps to have a plastic bag handy to stuff it all in.

:bulletred: EDIT: After a lot of wearing and brushing, I realized that despite how tight my knots were, the floofs can start to slide on the base. I went through and stitched them on by laying the tail flat and separating the floofs, revealing all the big knots. Then just go through with a long threaded needle and tack them to the base. Alternatively, tie your fluffs INTO the weave of the braid instead of AROUND it to stop them from sliding down!

:bulletred: EDIT Apr 2014: I recently made a great fluffy tail with "Loops & Threads" brand "Cozy Wool". It is 50% wool, 50% acrylic super bulky wool that I didn't straighten. I used longer strands to make a floofier tail (Instead of wrapping around your hand, wrap around a piece of cardboard or something that is wider than the span of your fingers) and only tied 4 strands together at a time. The tail has a cute wavy look as the fibres have not been straightened, just brushed out. I highly recommend this yarn!

:star: Here's some great tips from friends and fellow users:

1. Try a really soft, chunky wool - you might not even have to straighten it and you need to use less wool!
2. Tie your fluffs into the braid instead of around it to stop them from sliding down the base!
3. Try separating the wool strands before brushing to prevent knots.

After being questioned a lot of times (even by close friends of mine) if I had gotten implants, and after a LOT of thought on the subject of "should I post something like this?" I thought to myself: why not?

Lately this has been a major part of my cosplays and I know not having enough cleavage is a reason many girls end up not cosplaying some characters... and that's just sucky =[

So I hope you enjoy! =]

EDIT: I've made a video to compliment this tutorial teaching you the make up portion of it! Check it out here: [link]

(Size F hook and worsted weight yarn for all parts)

Head:

1.  Magic ring: 6
2.  Inc around (12)
3.  [Sc, inc] around (18)
4.  [Sc 2, inc] around (24)
5.  [Sc 3, inc] around (30)
6.  [Sc 4, inc] around (36)
7-11.  Sc around 5 times (36)
12.  Sc 8, inc, sc, inc, sc 14, inc, sc, inc, sc 8 (40)
13.  Sc around (40)
14.  Sc 11, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 11 (44)
15.  Sc around (44)
16.  Sc 11, dec, sc 18, dec, sc 11 (42)
17.  Sc 5, dec, sc 5, dec, sc 4, dec, 2, dec, sc 4, dec, sc 5, dec, sc 5 (36)
18.  [Sc 4, dec] around (30)
19.  [Sc 3, dec] around (24)
20.  [Sc 2, dec] around (18)
21.  [Sc, dec] around (12)
23.  Dec around (6)
24.  Fasten off (FO)

Note: The FO point should be approximately in the midline of the back of the head. Yes, it sort of matters because it should have subtle cheeks and a slight nose bulge.  Knowing where you are will help you stuff "strategically". 

-------

Tail and Body:
**The tail and body are all one piece.  You will need to crochet each piece of the tail fin separately and then combine and continue into the body.

Tail:
1.  Magic ring: 4
2.  [Sc, inc] around (6)
3.  [Sc, inc] around (9)
4.  [Sc 2, inc] around (12)
5.  [Sc 3, inc] around (15)
6.  [Sc 4, inc] around (18)
7-8.  Sc around 2 times (18)
9.  [Sc 4, dec] around (15)
10.  [Sc 3, dec] around (12)
11.  [Sc 2, dec] around (9)
12.  FO
Only fasten off for the first fin.  For the second fin, repeat steps 1-11 and then continue as follows:
13.  Sc, dec, sc, dec
This next step will connect the first and second fin together on one side.  Insert hook into a stitch on the first fin and continue as follows:
14.  Sc, dec, sc, dec, sc, dec
One side of the tail should be connected now.  Insert hook back into the stitch after the connection on the second tail and continue as follows:
15.  Sc, dec
Both fins should now be connected and you should have a continuous round of 12 stitches.
16.  Sc around (12)
17.  [Sc 3, inc] around (15)
18.  [Sc 4, inc] around (18)
19.  [Sc 5, inc] around (21)
20-22.  Sc around 3 times (21)
At this point, add as many stitches as necessary to make the beginning of your round at approximately the mid-line of the underside of the body.
23.  Sc 6, inc, sc 3, inc, sc 3, inc, sc 6 (24)
24.  Sc 5, inc, sc 4, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 4, inc, sc 5 (28)
25.  Sc around (28)
26.  Sc 6, inc, sc 5, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 5, inc, sc 6 (32)
27.  Sc 7, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 7 (36)
28.  Sc 8, inc, sc 7, inc, sc 2, inc sc 7, inc, sc 8 (40)
29-36.  Sc around 8 times (40)
37.  Sc 6, dec, sc 6, dec,sc 3, dec, sc 3, dec, sc 6, dec, sc 6 (35)
38-40.  Sc around 3 times (35)
41.  [Sc 5, dec] around (30)
42.  Sc around (30)
43.  Sc 3, dec, sc 3, dec, sc 2, dec, sc 2, dec, sc 2, dec, sc 3, dec, sc 3 (24)
44.  Sc around (24)
45.  FO

(The FO point should be approximately in the midline of the underside of the body)

-------

Arms:

1.  Magic ring: 6
2.  Inc around (12)
3.  Sc around (12)
4.  3, inc, 4, inc, 3 (14)
5.  Sc around (14)
6.  Sc 4, inc, sc 4, inc, sc 4 (16)
7.  Sc 4, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 4 (18)
8.  Sc around (18)
9.  Sc 5, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 5 (20)
10.  FO

(The FO point should be in the midline of the underside of the arm.)

-------

Feet:

1.  Magic ring: 6
2.  Inc around (12)
3.  [Sc, inc] around (18)
4.  [Sc 5, inc] around (21)
5.  Sc 5, dec, sc 2, dec, sc 3, dec, sc 5 (18)
6.  [Sc 4, dec] around (15)
7.  Sc 13, dec (14)
8.  Sc 3, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 4 (17)
9.  Inc, sc 4, inc, sc 3, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 4 (21)
10.  [Sc 6, inc] around (24)
11.  Sc around (24)
12.  FO


(The feet should be feet-shaped so make sure to keep that in mind when attaching and stuffing!)

-------

Back Spikes:

1.  Ch 22, turn
Starting at the third chain from the hook:
2.  [Sl st, hdc, dc, sl st] repeat 5 times
3.  FO

-------

Collar:

**Before doing this step, it might be wise to assemble at least Vaporeon's head and body so that you can determine how long to make the collar around the head.

**The number of stitches you will need will be a multiple of 2 plus 1 additional stitch (ie. 18+1, 20+1, 26+1).  Chain and measure around the head to decide how many stitches to use.  I ended up using about 27 stitches.


1.  Ch 27 (or however many stitches you determined), turn
Start at second chain from the hook:
2.  Sc 26 (your number -1)
3. [ Sl st, (dc, tc, dc all in next stitch)] repeat [] to the end
4.  FO

-------

Head fins:

Ears: (make 2)
Yellow:
1.  Ch 5, turn
Start at second ch from hook after each row for the following steps until otherwise specified.
2.  Dc, sc 3, ch 1, turn (4)

3.  Sc 4, ch 1, turn (4)
4.  (Dc, hdc) in the same stitch, sc 2, ch 1, turn (5)
5.  Sc 4, (sc, dc) in the same stitch, ch 1, turn (6)
6.  (Dc, dc) in the same stitch, sc 5 (7)
7.  FO
Blue:
Insert hook in the corner of the longest edge and single crochet along the edge.

Head fin:
Yellow:
1.  Ch 7, turn
2.  Sl st, sl st, sc, hdc, dc ch 1, turn (5)
3.  Sl st, sc 2, hdc, (dc, dc) in the same stitch, ch 1, turn (6)
4.  Sc 4, sl st, sl st (6)
5.  Sl st one more on the edge to create a downward sloping of the fin
6.  FO
Blue:
Insert hook in the corner of the longest edge and single crochet along the edge.

:bulletred: Yarn tails are becoming really popular, I'm seeing them everywhere now! I found the perfect yarn at my local craft store, so I had to try it out. Here's a tutorial showing exactly how I made my cat tail. Let me know if you have any questions!

:bulletred: Using the fur brush pulls out a lot of extra fluff. This is totally normal, and you can always save it to use as stuffing for plushies or what have you. It helps to have a plastic bag handy to stuff it all in.

:bulletred: EDIT: After a lot of wearing and brushing, I realized that despite how tight my knots were, the floofs can start to slide on the base. I went through and stitched them on by laying the tail flat and separating the floofs, revealing all the big knots. Then just go through with a long threaded needle and tack them to the base. Alternatively, tie your fluffs INTO the weave of the braid instead of AROUND it to stop them from sliding down!

:bulletred: EDIT Apr 2014: I recently made a great fluffy tail with "Loops & Threads" brand "Cozy Wool". It is 50% wool, 50% acrylic super bulky wool that I didn't straighten. I used longer strands to make a floofier tail (Instead of wrapping around your hand, wrap around a piece of cardboard or something that is wider than the span of your fingers) and only tied 4 strands together at a time. The tail has a cute wavy look as the fibres have not been straightened, just brushed out. I highly recommend this yarn!

:star: Here's some great tips from friends and fellow users:

1. Try a really soft, chunky wool - you might not even have to straighten it and you need to use less wool!

I decided to make a small panel on tail care, here it is:

PANEL 1: After rolling around the back seat of my car for two weeks my fox tail looked like an absolute mess. Crumpled, rubbed, smashed, matted and knotted.
-------------------------------------------------

PANEL2: But was I worried? nope. It may look devastating and completely ruined, but here are the tools i use to keep my tails looking their best.

- " O' pro " organic protein leave in conditioner/ detangeler. Features: olive oil, tea tree oil, and vitamin-e

- Four Paws slicker/ cat brush
-------------------------------------------------------

PANEL 3: with 5 sprays from the condiotoner and a few stroked of my brush you can start to see a big diffrence.
---------------------------------------------------------

PANEL 4: All done. It took me literally 1 minute to detangle it, in this picture it is still a little moist.

EDIT: This tutorial is for "yarn tails" which are tails make out of acyclic fiber.

1. Draw a white circle
2. Erase most the middle of the white circle
3. Blur the sides of the white circle ring
4. Go on a layer below and fill in the blurred ring and lower opacity of layer to desired fill in. Then blur in that so it's smooth with the blurred ring layer.(I do between 5-15)
5. On a layer above the filled and below the blurred ring. Add colors such as a dark blue/yellow and blur them until you have something that looks good to you.
6. Now above all these layers make a new layer, hit the scrollbar at "Mode" and click Luminosity. Draw highlights of desire and blur in here and there.
7. You can merge all these layers down but make sure to lock opacity for the Luminosity so it stays nice and shiny.
8. If you see mistakes or think you want to add more "detail" (highlights/blue) just go under the bubble and do so. Add white/lighter blues below the luminosity to make it pop more and all around the bubble.


I hope this helps some.. fff it's a /simple/ bubble tutorial. I messed with colors more and what not to make mine in my previous deviations. Also you probably want to clean up the sides of your bubble so just erase lumps/uneven parts and blur them in gently.
If you want me to try doing bubbles in GIMP/MS Paint I can just comment or something uvu <3
Btw I did a black background layer below all this so you can see it until you add your water scenes and what not~

I feel exhausted, so I'm kind of blanking on what to say Sweating a little...  I drilled and filled a tooth on a live patient for the first time ever this past week.  The patient survived and meanwhile, I didn't faint from nervousness XD  I've also been having some weird, itchy, skin condition all winter until now.  Combined with the nerves, I didn't sleep all too well this week, but crocheting has kept me sane through all the bumps of dental school :D (Big Grin)

Anyway, enough of that, Eevee is all done!! Eevee2 laI hope you all like her (I decided to make this one a "she" :D (Big Grin))!  As usual, please credit me should you use or manipulate this pattern and please be respectful and don't sell the finished product since I don't own the character!  Happy crocheting! La la la la

Note: The FO point should be approximately in the midline of the back of her head. Yes, it sort of matters because she should have subtle cheeks and a slight nose bulge.  Knowing where you are will help you stuff "strategically".

:bulletred: Yarn tails are becoming really popular, I'm seeing them everywhere now! I found the perfect yarn at my local craft store, so I had to try it out. Here's a tutorial showing exactly how I made my cat tail. Let me know if you have any questions!

:bulletred: Using the fur brush pulls out a lot of extra fluff. This is totally normal, and you can always save it to use as stuffing for plushies or what have you. It helps to have a plastic bag handy to stuff it all in.

:bulletred: EDIT: After a lot of wearing and brushing, I realized that despite how tight my knots were, the floofs can start to slide on the base. I went through and stitched them on by laying the tail flat and separating the floofs, revealing all the big knots. Then just go through with a long threaded needle and tack them to the base. Alternatively, tie your fluffs INTO the weave of the braid instead of AROUND it to stop them from sliding down!

:bulletred: EDIT Apr 2014: I recently made a great fluffy tail with "Loops & Threads" brand "Cozy Wool". It is 50% wool, 50% acrylic super bulky wool that I didn't straighten. I used longer strands to make a floofier tail (Instead of wrapping around your hand, wrap around a piece of cardboard or something that is wider than the span of your fingers) and only tied 4 strands together at a time. The tail has a cute wavy look as the fibres have not been straightened, just brushed out. I highly recommend this yarn!

:star: Here's some great tips from friends and fellow users:

1. Try a really soft, chunky wool - you might not even have to straighten it and you need to use less wool!
2. Tie your fluffs into the braid instead of around it to stop them from sliding down the base!
3. Try separating the wool strands before brushing to prevent knots.

Total time: ~5 hours+ depending on length

My very first yarn-tail. Not as fluffy as I hoped, but very fluffy nevertheless. The core is made from the wire of a normal hanger, is very flexible, yet suprisingly stable. Shaping it is quite hard and for small parts, like the loop connecting to the buckle, you have to use tools.

Here is a simple tutorial on making the owl - sock doll.
I find it's easy to make even for a beginner.
I didn't go on details on the sewing part, eg: what kind of stitch, how to sew etc. Just use simple stitch to sew.
Anyway, if someone need to know more details on certain part, just give me a note. :D

If someone has used this tutorial and make out something, please let me know, I want to see the result. :w00t:

Enjoy and try it out~
(My very first tutorial.... :blush: )

Latest News:-
Yes! I have made a site and will be putting all my sock doll tutorials there. So far I have only two tutorials... but will slowly make more and up put to the site. I am thinking to put more things on the site too, a gallery of my sock dolls, selling my sock dolls etc. :D
Feel free to take a look and leave me some suggestions or comments if possible. Many many thanks~ :hug:
