Pattern: Game of Thrones Baratheon Stag Amigurumi REVAMP

A 8" tall amigurumi of a stag. The pattern is available on Ravelry and my Etsy shop. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at icrochetthings@gmail.com.

Revamp time! I've been itching to make new versions of my Game of Thrones sigils for a while. The only one I really liked out of the original bunch was the direwolf. This time around I decided to make the animals look more realistic and have them stand up. This stag will make a lovely reindeer amigurumi come Christmastime. :)

The old pattern for the stag will be posted in an upcoming Free Pattern Friday because I have to go and edit all the links, posts, etc. relating to the old pattern and I'm too lazy to do it at the moment.

Free Pattern Friday: Raven Amigurumi REVAMP

A 7" tall amigurumi of a raven. The pattern is available on Ravelry or you can find it written below. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at icrochetthings@gmail.com.

Two patterns in one day? Nonsense.

Another revamp because that's my thing now, this time its of my old Raven pattern. Decided to remake it so it looks more like a real bird. It's also kind of Game of Thrones-y because of the three-eyed raven and all that. Only two eyes on this guy though. He's able to stand on his own, but you have to find that sweet spot and make sure to stuff the legs pretty well. In order to get the body to have a bird-like shape, I had to be a bit creative. The pattern looks complicated, take it slow and feel free to ask questions.

Here's a comparison pic:

*** More Detailed Instructions for Rounds 13 and 14

13. Do 15 sc as normal. Chain 7 and sc down the chains, back to the main piece. Resume single crocheting around the body for another 15 stitches. [sc, dec] six times until you reach the end of the round.
14. Do 15 sc as normal. Single crochet up the opposite side of the chains you made in the previous round. You should now be at the top of the chain extension. Single crochet back down the chain piece and back into the main piece. Do 33 sc as normal to the end of the round.

You should now have one piece with 60 stitches around. Proceed to round 15.

Basically the point of these rounds is to extend the length of the body to give it more of a bird shape. This is done using a chain extension that you incorporate into the rest of the piece, which adds an extra 12 stitches lengthwise onto the piece.

I hope this helps!

Free Pattern Friday: Tyrion Lannister Amigurumi

A 7.5" tall amigurumi of Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones. The pattern is available on Ravelry or you can find it written below. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at icrochetthings@gmail.com.

Game of Thrones? GAME OF THRONES!

My god I am so excited. To celebrate, here is an ancient pattern. It's supposed to be Tyrion Lannister but it uh...doesn't look much like him. =/
I've had this pattern just sitting on my computer for probably over two years now, and now that Game of Thrones is upon us I finally decided to upload it. There is so much I would change about it if I were to remake it, but that's not happening.

Sorry for no patterns lately, I had a few super busy weeks. BUT I will make up for it; I have been remaking all of my Game of Thrones sigil patterns. Once I upload the new patterns, all four of the old patterns will be free. The only one I have left to make is the direwolf, so those should be coming soon. TGIF and GET HYPE
