Pony Apparel Pattern 2: Vincent Valentine

Okay, let's do this thing!


A couple things before I get started!

1) It's been quite a while since I actually made these, so I don't remember how I put everything together. I wasn't so much on the writing-the-assembly-instructions-down thing with - well, any of my patterns, really, but these in particular. Moreover, I don't have the ponies themselves, so I can't look at them and figure out how I did stuff backwards. I'll try to include what I remember/can figure out from the pattern, but otherwise, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. Sorry! That's the way it is. I recommend looking at the pics of the accessories for help.

2) You can use these as a template for making your own clothes! I WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY NEW PATTERNS FOR NEW CLOTHES FOR YOU. Unless you pay me to do so.

3) Apparently I just wave my crochet hook and white science magic happens? Basically, I cannot guarantee what you make will turn out looking what I made.


What you need to know:
Crocheting in the round [spiral]
Single crochet (sc)
Double crochet (dc)
Slip stitch (sl st)
Back loop crochet (bl [stitch])
Increasing ([stitch] 2 in 1)
Decreasing [double crochet] ([stitch] 2 tog)

Where it says Row, that means you crochet in reversing rows. Assume ch 2 to turn at the end of every row.
Where it says Round, that means you crochet in the round in a spiral.

Cape Collar Bottom:
Row 1: Ch 32 (last two are to turn)
Row 2: Dc 30
Row 3: Dc 45 ([dc 1, dc 2 in 1] x 15)
Row 4: Dc 60 ([dc 2, dc 2 in 1] x 15)
Row 5, 6: Dc 60
Fin

Cape Collar Top:
Row 1: In the free loops of the chain from row 1 of the collar bottom Dc 30
Row 2: Dc 36 ([dc 4, dc 2 in 1] x 6)
Row 3: Dc 42 ([dc 5, dc 2 in 1] x 6)
Fin

Cape Tail:
Row 1: Ch 20 (last 2 are to turn)
Row 2 thru 13: Dc 18
Row 14 +: Ragged ends (I'm sorry, you're on your own for this one for now! I'll see about drawing up a diagram, but I really, really don't have the pattern written down and have no plans to do so, so after that you're really on your own.)
Fin

Boot Base: (make 2)
Round 1: Dc 12
Round 2: Dc 24 (dc 2 in 1 x 12)

Fin

Fin

Round 4: Dc 15 ([dc 2 in 1, dc 3] x 3)
Round 5: Blsc 15
Round 6: Dc 18 ([dc 2 in 1, dc 4] x 3)

I actually made this in several rings and sewed them together, but used bl crochet on the claw sleeve after making them and was of the opinion that those lines turned out better/more visible. That basically means I haven't actually tested this way yet, but it should work okay. Also, stuffing the toe point is optional.

Claw Sleeve:
Round 1: Dc 12
Round 2: Dc 24 (dc 2 in 1 x 12)
Round 3: Sc 36 ([sc 2 in 1, sc 1] x 12)
Round 4: Blsc 36
Round 5 thru 8: Dc 36
Round 9: Bldc 36
Round 10, 11: Dc 36
Round 12: Bldc 36
Round 13, 14: Dc 36
Fin

Joints: (make 2)
Round 1: Ch 4, sl st into first ch; switch to rows; dc 2
Row 2: Dc 6
Row 3: Dc 12 (dc 2 in 1 all around)
Row 4: Dc 18 ([dc 2 in 1, dc 1] x 6)
Row 5: Dc 24 ([dc 2 in 1, dc 2] x 6)
Fin

Claws: (make 3)
Row 1: Ch 8; last ch is to turn
Row 2: Sc 4, dc 3
Row 3: Dc 3, sc 4
Fin

Sew the top of Row 3 to the free loops of Row 1. (I didn't write this down either, but this should work? If it's too small, repeat Row 2 after Row 3 (ch 1 to turn to sc).
