The Psychic/Ice type Johto Pokemon, Jynx


Hi guys, thanks for waiting! It took me three weeks to make Jynx and now she's finished! I was running out of red yarn, so her dress isn't as long as I wanted it....And she's not as pretty as I'd hoped.....But at least she's all in one piece! lol!
 If you find anything amiss with the pattern then please email me, comment on this post, leave a post on the Facebook page, or send me a Ravelry message. Also if you'd like to, post a picture of your finished Jynx on the Facebook page! I would love to see them all!
 Well no more dawdling! Onward to the pattern!

JYNX

Materials:
 WW yarn in purple, yellow, red, gray, and cream(I used Red Heart Aran, Purple, Bright Yellow, Red, and Light Gray)
 Size G (#6 or 4.00 mm) crochet hook
 Yarn Needle
 Polyester fiberfill (pillows work just as well!)
 Scissors
 Felt in White, Pink, Brown, and Black

Notes:
 Gauge isn't that important, just so long as your stitches are tight so that the stuffing won't show or fall out.
 The (parentheses) at the end of each Rnd/Row indicate the number of stitches at the end of that Rnd/Row.
 I work in continuous rounds (aka spiral rounds), but if your prefer to join at the end of each round that's fine. I also decrease in front loops only because I've heard that it makes the decrease stitch less visible.
 If you don't know what a Magic Ring is don't panic! It's also called Magic Loop or Magic Circle. Here's an alternative: If the pattern says 6 sc in Magic Ring you can ch 2 and 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook and join stitches. I prefer working with a Magic Ring because you can pull it as tight as you want so that the stuffing won't show. Most people I have tried to teach the Magic Ring to throw their crochet hooks and yarn on the floor in a huffy, but I myself find it fairly easy depending on how many stitches is in it. If you'd like to learn how to make one I found THIS LINK very helpful. The only person I've had success with teaching is my sister. Just use whatever you feel most comfortable using.

 Here is a list of the crochet terms I used in this pattern:
  1. sc -- Single Crochet
  2. sl st -- Slip Stitch
  3. hdc -- Half Double Crochet
  4. dc -- Double Crochet
  5. tr -- Triple Crochet
  6. dtr -- Double Triple Crochet
  7. dec -- Decrease over next 2 stitches
 Try not to get confused with any of these techniques. If you need any help please contact me via any of the above mentioned means.

Rnd 3: 2 sc in 1st st, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last 3 (10)

Assembly:
 Sew the hands to the arms and then sew the arms to the dress. The hair was probably the most complicated of the body parts. I used a technique that some of my friends showed me. Here is the link. If you have any trouble please contact me and I'll be glad to help. Here are some pictures of what the hair looks like.
