Small-ish Haku by aphid777 Small-ish Haku by aphid777
This was a rush project I did for a friend who is graduating from pharmacy school. He loves Miyazaki films and so I decided to make a smaller version of Haku as compared to my last one. This one is still at least about 30 inches long, which was (again) bigger than I was planning. I DID write notes down this time around, so I will eventually post a pattern. It will probably be a very rough pattern though since I was in such a rush but hopefully it will be understandable!

Of course, I had to take pictures of mini and huge Haku together so those will be up later because I've gotta go! =P

Both Haku's:

Edit:

This is a pretty rough pattern. I don't know what gauge wire I used (anything that can support the body and legs should work).  I also don't have exact measurements for the lengths of wire used for his body, legs, and whiskers since I was experimenting myself and ended up trimming off excess wire when needed. I would estimate that I used at least 30 inches of wire for his body, 5 inches of wire for his front legs, and 6 inches of wire for his back legs (thicker wire for his body and thinner in his legs). I'll let you decide how long you want his whiskers to be :)

I would err more on the side of cutting wires that are too long rather than too short because you can always trim excess wire.
I also bent the tips of the wires I used in Haku's body and limbs to prevent sharp edges from poking out.

Please let me know if I've made any mistakes! And PLEASEEE don't sell this pattern or product since I do not own this character! Let's share the love! :tighthug:

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 this character!  Thank you!

Head and Body:

**Crochet around the wire
**I like to keep my rounds in the center of his body (in this case, his underbelly) so in some areas, I added extra stitches to a round to keep the center consistent. There is a lot of room for flexibility so add stitches as you see fit :)

**The wire exiting the legs will be inserted directly into Haku's body before sewing his legs on. I ended up folding the wire for several reasons: to shorten/adjust the length as much as I needed, to hide sharp ends, as well as to make it a little sturdier.
