I'm just going to sit here and pretend this is a few days after AnimeIowa rather than a week and a day past. That work for you? Okay then.

For those of you who made it to AI, this was the pattern I used for Senator Lemonsnout. I started out trying to find out whether the dc pattern I made for Pyralspite would translate to a smaller scalemate just by switching to sc - and then found it it didn't. Good to know for future me/present me!

Sooner or later, I'll have up Pyralspite's pattern (AKA the Large Scalemate Pattern). Hopefully I'll also eventually have a Medium Scalemate Pattern, though who knows when that'll happen exactly. (Future me, obviously.) In the mean time, I hope anyone who wishes to can overpopulate their respiteblocks with scalemates of various colors and identities will be satisfied with this.

First, though, pictures for those who haven't seen the end result yet: Senator Lemonsnout )

Pattern )
hooked_on_anime: Blue yarn in a magic ring (untightened) with six sc stitches; a green arrow points away from the loose end. (Tighten the ring)
What the heck; I've got my written patterns out, I've got a clean file on OpenOffice ready, why not get the other scalemate pattern up?

For those of you who made it to AnimeIowa, this is the pattern I used for Pyralspite. I'm happy to announce that I have since found cheap squeaky toys at the dollar tree, and plan to perform surgery on Pyralspite ...eventually. Sooner or later, really.

Pics or it didn't happen? Well here's pics of Pyralspite, so it must have happened )

Pattern here )

I hope this makes up a bit for me taking so long to post the Small Scalemate pattern :X I really do try not to let my life get too far away from me but - well, it's an ongoing process.

Edit: 11 Nov 2011 - Made a minor change, removing the start-up sc from the body, head, and legs. If you've been having trouble with shape, this should help a bit. (24 May 2012: Round numbers have been changed to reflect this.)
Edit: 06 Dec 2011 - Added a suggestion to the bottom of the Head pattern. I'm planning to give it a try myself before making it permanent, but it seems sound to me from just looking, so if you've had trouble with the nose area, give it a look-see. Hat-tip for the suggestion to a helpful commenter :)
Edit: 10 May 2014 - Minor correction to the body. Hat tip to anonymous commenter. Thank you!
