Mr Pricklepants Crochet Pattern

Happy February!

This months Mini Tier Pattern is Mr Pricklepants from Toy Story.

This project was a lot of fun because Mr Pricklepants is all about the embellishments. The body is vary basic and I was able to whip it up in no time at all. This left me with a lot of time and opportunity to pour my creativeness and obsession for mixed media into this project.

Annoyingly, I did not remember that I had brown safety eyes that would be perfect for this project until after I had finished crocheting the body. I did not want to unravel what I had done, mainly because I was ahead of schedule and didn’t want the setback, so I just pushed the eyes through the holes and used glue to secure them. Fortunately for me, my Mr Pricklepants is for display purposes only so having to do this didn’t bother me too much.

For those of you that decide to make Mr Pricklepants, you should insert the safetly eyes approximately 13-14 rows from the top.

To speed up the laborious task of attaching his hair I attached 4 strands at a time – 1 beige, 1 medium brown and 2 dark brown strands. Along the front of the hairline, I kept it close together but spaced it out more for the middle and the back. This still gives the illusion of a very full head of hair without all the effort.

I decided to be a bit lazy when it came to the felt clothing. Instead of sewing the clothes, I decided to just glue it with felt glue. I mainly chose to do it this way because I decided that I would not be taking off Mr Pricklepant’s clothing so planned to glue them on to secure it. With this in mind it just made sense to also glue the clothing to assemble it too.

The overall measurements of Mr Pricklepants is approximately 7.5 inches/19cm tall and 6.5 inches/16.5cm wide.
