Pikachu Slippers (child/teen size)

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
     Pikachu, I choose you! Make the right decision and make these adorable slippers. They'll bring so much joy and friendship to anyone that wears them. Pikachu promises to keep your feet warm no matter what battle faces you.

SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
These slippers fit someone with an 8.5" foot or a 3US Kids shoe size
You're able to easily customize the slippers by adding less or more rounds/rows to fit someone with a smaller or larger foot (indications on how to do so are below on row 15-24).

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size: 3.75mm (F) or size needed to obtain gauge
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Yellow (155yds) & Black (8yds)
*Felt: Black, White & Red
*Fiberfill (optional)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Tapestry Needle
*Matching Thread
*Hot Glue

GAUGE 8stitches x 5rows = 2"
Don't forget to check your gauge.

PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first st, not on top of the chains.

SLIPPER with yellow; make 2
  Rnd 1: 5sc in magic ring, sl st into 1st st (5)
  Rnd 2: ch2, 2dc in each st around, sl st into 1st st (10)
  Rnd 3: ch2, 2dc in each st around, sl st into 1st st (20)
  Rnd 4: ch2, *2dc in next st, dc in next st* repeat from * to * around, sl st into 1st st (30)
  Rnd 5: ch2, *2dc in next st, dc in next 5 sts* repeat from * to * around, sl st into 1st st (35)
  Rnd 6-13: ch2, dc in each st around, sl st into 1st st (35)
  Row 14: ch2, dc in next 24sts, ch2, turn (24)
  Row 15-24: dc in each st across, ch2, turn (24) in the last row, do not turn your work.
You can make the slippers smaller or larger by simply making fewer rows or adding more rows at this point.
  Rnd 25: ch1 and sc along the top as indicated in the picture below but in each corner put 2sc. This will give the slippers a finished look.
  Rnd 26: ch1, sc in each st around
F/O and leave about a 36" strand of yarn (it will be used for sewing the back of the slipper together in the assembling process).

EARS starting with black; make 4
  Rnd 1: 4sc in magic ring (4)
  Rnd 2: sc in each st around (4)
  Rnd 3: 2sc in next st, sc in next st around (6)
  Rnd 4: 2sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts around, in last st change to yellow (8)
  Rnd 5-11: sc in each st around (8)
  Rnd 12: sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog around, sl st into 1st st (6)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.


ASSEMBLE
    I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
    TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     SLIPPERS...turn your slipper inside out. With a tapestry needle and by using the whip stitch seam, sew the back of the heel with the long strand of yarn we left. Secure and weave in the end.
     When sewing anything on booties or slippers, I like to stuff the front with tissue paper or fiberfill because this helps me to better sew the pieces in place and they won’t end up uneven. After everything has been sewn and/or glue in place just remove the tissue paper or fiberfill.
     EARS...you can stuff them lightly if you like or simply flatten them out. If you decide to flatten them, they won't be droopy at all. Place them diagonally on the 2 final rounds we made at the end of the slippers (round 25 & 26).
     EYES...using black felt make 2 circles and another 2 using white felt but make these much smaller. Place the black circles on round 10; approx. 1.25" apart. The tiny white circles go on the top of the black circles. Repeat the same process with the other slipper.
     CHEEKS...using red felt make 4 circles. You'll want them to be a bit bigger than the eyes (the black circles). Place them on round 8 and 9 just right beneath the eyes on the sides.
     MOUTH...using black thread or embroidery floss make the mouth in round 7. You can play around with it and make it however you like, the possibilities are endless. If you would like to make the mouth as shown in the main picture, follow these simple steps below (click on each image to enlarge).
     NOSE...just right above the mouth make a tiny vertical line with black thread or embroidery floss.

     PUMPKIN...using orange yarn (about a 72" strand), we're going to be inserting it in the middle of the top and looping it to the bottom. Do this about 5 more times to make it look like a pumpkin instead of a sphere.
     HEAD to PUMPKIN...if you haven't already stuff the head lightly. Try to center it on the middle and it should go up to round 6 all over. You will only be sewing round 5 of the head to the pumpkin, leaving round 6 unsew.
