Shercat and Hedgeson

After watching seasons 1 and 2 of BBC's Sherlock... I became quite the fan, following forums and fan sites. I couldn't get enough of the crime-solving duo.

So I decided to get in on the rave and do a fan art of my own. ^^


Okay, making human amigurumi versions of them was out of the question... Sorry, not enough experience. But I figured why not make something that represents them instead. That's when I had the brilliant idea of making a cat version of Sherlock Holmes and a hedgehog version of John Watson. 


For "Shercat" and "Hedgeson" I used the cat pattern made by Nicki Sandoval and ideal sphere pattern by Emily Premise-Conclusion.

SHERCAT

Crochet Hook - F5 (3.75 mm)
White felt
White thread
Fiberfill stuffing
 
 
I didn't anymore post my adjustments to the pattern to make Shercat since it's really not that much of a biggie, very minor tinkering. The scarf's also easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy, just do a few rows and make sure that scarf's length is long enough to be tied or stitched for it to look like Sherlock's actual famous blue scarf. Then add a row of tiny tassels at both ends for effect.

I don't have a pattern for the sweater. I just did some random rows for the body and sleeves and didn't keep track on the count. Really sorry! But you know, If I could come up with the sweater then it wouldn't be too hard for you to come up with it too. I even think you'd do a lot better. Hehehe ^^ I used Blonde.
 
 
 
So that's about it... My very own fan art of BBC's Sherlock. Pretty proud of myself actually. I wasn't 100% sure that I could do it and yet here they are... New additions to my amigurumi collection. So happy! ^^
