I have to admit that Spongebob Squarepants
is one of my guilty pleasures: the antics of the little "absorbent, yellow, and porous" ocean dweller are always good medicine for a bad day.
So I was delighted to see this amigurumi version of Sheldon J. Plankton
, the evil nemesis of our hero Spongebob's employer, Mr. Krabs
. He was created by Craftster
user LadyLuigi, and is one of the site's new featured projects.
To make this amigurumi, you need a passable knowledge of crochet: the instructions given for Plankton
(on the fifth page of replies) may not be enough for a beginner. But if you have
crocheted a few things before, you shouldn't experience any real problems.
Required supplies include:
Plankton may ordinarily be 1% evil and 99% hot gas
- an H hook (approximate size)
- a couple of pipe cleaners
- black embroidery floss
- scrap yarn in the following colors: olive green (you'll need the most of this), pale yellow or cream, red, and white
, but in this case, he's primarily made of yarn -- and 100% adorable. I bet he won't even try to steal your Krabby Patties.
