Kudamon



Made for my sister as a belated birthday/leaving home present.Took me a while to figure out ho to make him but I am very pleased with the way he turned out.

Abbreviations

stst = Stockinette stitch. Knit being the right side and Purl being the wrong side.
Kfb = Knit front and back into a stitch to increase.
K2tog or P2tog = Knit or Purl 2 stitches together to decrease
B and T = break of yarn leaving a long end and thread through sts left on the knitting needle and pull tight to close the hole then fasten off
I-cord= Knitted on Dpn's. cast on stst then knit as normal, instead of turning to purl, push the stitches to the end of the dpn and knit again pulling the wool behind the stitches. After doing this for a few rows you will see the cord appearing, pull the cord to tighten the stitches.

If knitting in the round divide the stitches equally among the needles and when it says to Purl a row Knit instead. Stuff as you go.

Pin to the side of the head and sew on. On the right ear thread a red piece of wool through the edge and tie the ends together, cut the ends off close to the knot and then manoeuvre the knot so it is tucked in the ear to make the earring.

Neck ring make 1 (yellow)Knit flat

Cast on 25
Stst 4 rows
Cast off

Wrap round the neck and sew the two ends together and then stitch round the neck.

The eyes I made with yellow and black felt and then put a french knot for the pupil. To do the body pattern I just embroidered it on using the same colour as the tail and neck ring. I found that every picture of Kudamon I could find had a different pattern on so in the end I just made loads of lines and circles around the body. The mouth and claws were just embroidered on in black wool. The nose was done in pink.
