Wakko – Free Crochet Pattern

Remember the Animaniacs? I loved this show. Yakko, Wakko and Dot were the best. Plus it spawned Pinky and the Brain.

I’ve been working on crocheting my childhood.

Here’s Wakko. You can also get Yakko. I haven’t typed Dot yet. She will be done eventually. IMG_3095

Don’t forget to vote for Betty the Yeti and Thalyssa the Chthulu at amigurumipatterns.net.

Remember this one isn’t tested. If you see problems, let me know.

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn – White
I love this yarn – Red
I love this yarn – Black
I love this yarn – Medium Blue
12 MM Safety Eyes
Oval Safety nose Spray painted Red (I used pink ones from Fresh Stitches)
Size E crochet hook

Abbreviations
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
CH- Chain
FO – Fasten Off
SL ST – Slip Stitch
INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch
DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

Spray Paint the Nose before you start crocheting to give them time to dry. I recommend 2 coats to get even coverage.

The example pictures are from a different head that has the same construction as Black is difficult to see the stitches.

Attach to head pursuant to the instructions below.

HEAD

The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you finish the head and stuff her.

Black Metallis Floss for the eyes and nose or
