Godzilla-Kun!!!

So I watched the reboot movie of Godzilla a week after its release and I say, it did not disappoint. It was hands-down awesome, it just blew my mind. OMG! The Godzilla vs. Muto smack-down was out of this world. Man! I so love monster movies. The bigger, the better!!! Rawr!!! Hahaha! 


Anyway,  with the Godzilla hangover I've been doodling

the kawaii version of the classic monster. Yah, you heard me right... Kawaii version. Well, he was really fierce in the movie but if you take a good look at him... He actually seems adorable. Those chubby-wubby wegs, cutie-patootie big eyes, and shkewy-wewy roars. Aww! So cute. 

Hmm... Maybe I do have a problem... Nah! ^^


Eventually, I got tired of the doodles and decided to create an amigurumi version of Godzilla. If it was possible and would not kill me in the long run, I'd make him in life-size form. Seriously! I'd go for it if I could stop time and turn my hands into steel so I wouldn't bleed to death. How awesome could that be? An amigurumi of Godzilla as big as a building... Whoah! So. Want! Hahaha!

Well, this was quite an accomplishment, if I do say so myself. Making the body/bottom part of the head was one of the hardest patterns I had to come up with. To tell you the truth, I wasn't 100% sure that I was doing this right. But not until I finished it and turned out this cute that I finally said to myself, "You did good". Most awesome feeling in the world. Yeah! Hahaha ^^

  3. I don't understand the instructions on row 37 on the bottom of the head.

    1. When you reach Row 37, just sc around until you reach the st before the marker. You'll be working on rounds again. It's just getting you back where you left off before doing the rows. Did that help? ^^

      Delete
    2. rows 31-37 are a flap for me and when I continue on it folds and I do not have 39 stitches. I must be reading the pattern wrong for those rows.

      Delete
    3. What do you mean? It's supposed to be a flap since it's the lower jaw. You get the 39 stitches if you go around. So after 13 sc in Row 37, don't ch1-turn but instead sc all around (From the rim of the jaw to the back of the head) until the last st before the marker. You left the marker before doing the rows right?

      Delete
    4. What I do 37 after I continue from the flap to the stitch it only makes 26. Than I do the next round of SC and it is still 26 but it says 39. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Can you help?

      Delete
    5. I went around and I didn't get 39 I got 26 :-(.I do not know what to do. I left the marker

      Delete
    6. I think it's because you didn't include the 13sc in the count.

      Okay, put a marker on the first sc in Row 37. It'll make it less confusing. Then do the rest of the 12 sc and instead of doing a ch1-turn continue working in rounds until you reach your marker. So 13sc plus the 26sc to go around is 39sc all in all.

      I hope this helps. ^^

      Delete
    7. Whoops! I didn't see you had a follow up question. So sorry about that.

      No worries, just retrace your steps before Row 37. When you're sure right back in track, put a marker on the first sc you do in Row 37. Then like I said earlier, just sc around until you reach your marker. ^^

      Just give me a buzz if you're still having a hard time. I'll be more than happy to help. ^^

    8. Hopefully this does not come across as rude like so many things come across in text....the confusion I was having was due to the fact that is was unclear that you have to add 7 down the side of the flap after the 14 across the top. SC to the marker and onto the next side of the flap and than add 6 SC up the side of the flap. I only realized this after watching the video. Thank you! Again not trying to be rude at all. This is a great pattern and I love the end result. I just wanted to put it in simple terms in case anyone else was confused :-D thanks again for sharing

  4. Why do have two differant sets of instruction for rows 31-37?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because rows 31 - 36 are worked in rows and not rounds. I described 37 as a row then turning into a round so that the transition wouldn't be confusing.

  5. My grandson would love this Godzilla but the pattern is too confusing for me even though I have been crocheting for over 40 years. I would love to know if any others have given up on the confusing rows.

    1. Ouch! Well that kinda stung. I'm really sorry if my pattern's confusing but that's the only way I know how to write it. I'm no expert. I've just started crocheting 2 years ago. I wouldn't know if anyone's given up, but I do know some who did it in Ravelry. You could ask them instead if you like. ^^

  6. Sorry, didn't mean to be mean just frustrated that I couldn't figure it out but I'm not giving up! THANK YOU for the hard work that went into writing the pattern that's something I have never done or have the talent for.

    1. No problem. I understand the frustration. ^^ I asked a friend who made this to assist you. She said she'll comment on this blog next Monday or any day next week. ^^

  7. To anyone who's confused by this pattern, please go to Shanese J/n3se's youtube video (http://youtu.be/5y1VcgpSk1k) on how to do the body/head-bottom part. Specifically rows 31-37. It's a bit out of frame but the how-to is quite clear.

    Shout out to Shanese J/n3se, THANKS SO MUCH!!! ^^

  8. It's absolutely adorable! I must make this for my son. I'm curious as to how big it is. I don't see the measurements and I can't quite tell from the photos. Sorry. And thank you for sharing your pattern. I can't wait to start it. :)

    Replies
    1. Sorry about the measurements, I'm not very good with details. Y_Y But I think it's about 10 inches, big enough for a cuddle-buddy. ^^

      I'm glad you liked the pattern. I know your son will love it. Just give me a buzz if you need any help. Good luck. ^^

      Delete
    2. Oh my goodness, I'm nearly finished with it. I went with a wool that he liked,a very chunky one, so it's about 14 inches or so, but he will absolutely love it! It's my first 3D project, so I figured it would take longer. Now, I have to try and keep it a secret until end of November for his birthday. Thank you!

      Delete
    3. Wow! That's great. It's a relief to know that my pattern isn't that confusing. Hehehe! ^^ Oh so his birthday is in November... Not very long now. Extend my greetings to your lovely son. ^^

      Delete
  9. I too am confused by the flap and returning from back and forth to rounds - do you mean you should be picking up stitches along the sides of the flap so that you end up with 39? That is the only confusing part. The rest of the pattern is really well done and super cute. :) Thank you for putting in all the hard work.

    1. Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand your question. But let me see if I got it right... After you do the flap up to Row 37, you go around with sc until you reach the marker you left on Rnd 30. Then work on it as a normal round... So you'll not just work around the front flap anymore but around it. Did that make sense? -^.^-

      Delete
    2. Just give me a buzz if it gets difficult again. ^^

    1. It means front loop only. Instead of inserting your hook to both loops of the stitches, you only work on one... The one that's facing you. ^^

      Delete
  11. The stitch count for rounds 27 and 28 should be 31, not 21. I figured it was a typo.

  12. I finishe'd attaching the spikes early this morning. It's very cute.

  13. I just finished my Godzilla-kun! It is so cute and I enjoyed making all the parts, especially the claws! Thank you so much for sharing your pattern!

  14. How big is it? Don't see any mention of size any where. Thank you :)

    1. Sorry, I keep forgetting to put in the size. It just slips my mind. T_T

      Anyway, Godzilla-kun is about 12 inches tall.
