Baby Espeon (with pattern)

Took a break from my contest entry to make.. Espeon! :meow:  I didn't type up a pattern for her because she's basically just Eevee with a different tail and extra ear pieces.  (Pattern for Eevee here: Baby Eevee (with pattern) by aphid777).  All details are needle felted and Espeon's tail has a small amount of wire for some poseability.

And of course, I had to take a photo of Umbreon and Espeon together: Baby Umbreon and Espeon by aphid777  Hope you like them, and happy Easter everyone!  Wishing you much chocolate, eggs, and bunnies in your life on this beautiful Sunday! :la:

Additional Ear Pieces:

**Note:  There are 2 steps to making each ear piece.  Each of the corners are made separately and combined to form a single piece.

Step 1: (First, smaller piece)
1.  Magic ring: 4
2.  [Sc, inc] around (6)
3.  Sc around (6)
4.  FO

Step 2: (Second, larger piece)
1.  Magic ring: 4
2.  [Sc, inc] around (6)
3.  [Sc 2, inc] around (8)
4.  [Sc 3, inc] around (10)
5-7.  Sc around 3 times (10)
Do not fasten off yet.

Combining the pieces: (continuation of step 2)
Insert hook into a stitch on the first piece made.
8.  Sc 2, dec, sc 2
Insert hook back to the second piece in the stitch right next to where the first junction between the two pieces is.
9.  Sc 4, dec, sc 3
The pieces should now be combined and you should have a total of 14 stitches.
10.  Dec, sc 4, dec, sc 6 (12)
11.  Sc around (12)
12.  FO


**Note: I decided to put some thing wire into the tail for flexibility.  This is entirely optional.  I don't know what gauge wire I used, sorry!

**Tail is also made in a similar fashion to the ear pieces to create that slingshot shape.

Step 1: (First piece)
1.  Magic ring: 6
2-7.  Sc around 6 times (6)
8.  FO

Step 2: (Second piece/rest of the tail)
1.  Magic ring: 6
2-7.  Sc around 6 times (6)
8.  Sc 4, dec (5)
Insert hook into stitch on piece #1.
9. Sc 4, dec
Insert hook back to piece #2 in the stitch following the first junction you made.  This will complete the combination of the two pieces.  You should now have a total of 10 stitches.
10-26. Sc around 17 times <--more or less depending on how long/short you want the tail to be (10)

**Eyes and spot on the head are needle felted.

Hello! I'm using your pattern as a guide in attempt to create my own to add and I have a question:

For the head part, I'm on round 12, but I keep coming to the end with 39 instead of the 40.
I've even done calculations and I'm not sure if I've done something wrong... could you help?
wdw28ears's avatar
I just did an increase on the last sc for that row. I couldn't figure out what was wrong either, so I just added.

Thank you so much for the pattern, and for inspiring me to pick up this awesome hobby! :dance:

I don't know until what point you can act on it though :/

It's a gorgeous little thing<3
So much so that I just had to try my hands at it :)
Here's the results of Espeon and Umbreon:
Your Espeon is so adorable, all the other Eeveelutions are also so adorable, and your skull kid is absolutely the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my entire life (literally I've been freaking out about it for days). 

Anyway, I had a question about this Espeon pattern. I wanted to do the felting just how you did it, but I'm a beginner, and I was just wondering what size/type of felting needle you used. Also, is there a certain type of wool you would recommend? Thank you so much for sharing all these patterns and your so amazing! :)
You are so kind to share this pattern with us :3
Skyilere's avatar
Have you done the Flareon before/yet?…
^-- That is a link to the Flareon, but you can find all of the Eeveelutions here:…
Hope that helps :)

Ooo, sweet.

Thx,it does. I Heart Glaceon too. Theyre all cute,tho. I wish you'll mail one to Singapore D=
I'm quite new to crocheting and don't understand what Inc is, can somebody explain this to me? I can't seem to find what it is.
Hello Alleycats!
Inc means increase, you have to do 2 sc in the same sc below.
If you need a more detailed explanation, this video will help you more:…

And sorry for my bad english ._.
can you explain the additional ear things a bit more? once you put the hook thru the first piece are you crocheting on the first piece or second? and if it's on the first then are you pulling the stitch all the way thru all the yarn on the hook or just stoping after the loops from the first piece? (kinda new to crocheting) A video for the ears would be amazing if you know of one or something you should point me in that direction

Hey your pattern is really awesome, its the first time i do something like that and it works really nice, but im not sure how i can make the eyes, do u have some tipps for me?
Suffer--in--Silence's avatar
She's needle felted the eyes on. She has a short tutorial for it somewhere in her gallery, but there's also several tutorials for it on the internet.
You need special needles for it to work though, which you can buy at most arts and crafts stores.
