Totodile crochet pattern by Robezpierre Totodile crochet pattern by Robezpierre
So, here's a new pattern that I made up over the summer. Now, there is a very nice pattern already available, but I'm cheap and didn't want to pay $5 for said pattern, so this is my free pattern (if I don't like to pay for patterns, why should I make other people pay for mine?).

You'll need:
Turquoise yarn
White yarn
Yellow yarn
Red yarn
a crochet hook (I used a G)
Stuffing
A Tapestry needle
Felt for the eyes. The totodile in this picture is actually winking, though this is his shut-eye side.

The pattern's formatted as following.
A number, indicating row or round: the instructions for the row or round (the number of stitches that you should have by the end of this round)


Head and Body
Round 1: single crochet 6 in magic circle (6)
2: inc around (12)
3: sc, inc around (18)
4: sc 2, inc around (24)
5: sc 3, inc around (30)
6: sc 4, inc around (36)
7-19: Sc around (36)
20: Sc 11, inc around (39)
21: Sc around (39)
22: Sc 12, inc around (42)
23: Sc around (42)
24: Sc 13, inc around (45)
25-27: Sc around (45)
28: sc 14, inc around (48)
29: sc 7, inc around (54)
30: sc around (54)
31: sc 7, dec around (48)
32: sc 6 dec (42)
33: sc 5 dec (36)
34: sc 4 dec (30)
35: sc 3 dec (24)
36: sc 2 dec (18)
37: sc dec (12)
38: dec around (6)
39: dec around (3)
F/O.

Tail
Round 1: 6 in mc (6)
2: sc around (6)
3: sc, inc around (9)
4: sc around (9)
5: sc 2, inc around (12)
6-7: sc around (12)
8: sc 3, inc around (15)
9-10: sc around (15)
11: sc 4 inc around (18)
12-13: sc around (18)
14: sc 5 inc (21)
15-16: sc around (21)
17: sc 6 inc (24)
F/O, leaving a long yarn tail to attach to the body

Upper Snout/Jaw (ch1 turn at the end of these rows unless otherwise stated)
Row 1: Ch 2, inc in 2nd ch from hook (2)
2: Inc, sc (3)
3: Sc, inc, sc (4)
4: Sc 2, inc, sc (5)
5: Sc 2, inc, sc 2 (6)
6: Sc2, inc, sc 3 (7)
7: Sc3, inc, sc 3 (8)
8: Sc 4, inc, sc 3 (9)
9: Sc 4, inc, sc 4 (10)
10-11: Sc across (10)
12: sc 4, inc, sc 5 (11)
13: sc 5, inc, sc 5 (12)
14: sc 6, inc, sc 5 (13)
15: inc, sc 11, inc (15)
16: inc, sc 13, inc (17)
17: inc, sc 15, inc (19)
Now, instead of continuing to crochet along the rows, you’ll be crocheting around the edge of the snout- the other two sides of the triangle, if you will. Remember to continue with ch1 and turn at the end of your rows.
Row 1: sc 16, inc 3 in one st at the point, sc 16 (35)
2: sc 16, dec over 3, sc 16 (33)
3: sc across (33)
F/O with long tail. Now, it looks a bit odd, and like it won’t fit well against the head. I pressed and pinned the jaws against the head with a curve in order to make it fit. I’ll post a few pictures in my scraps that will hopefully help explain.

Lower Snout/Jaw (ch1 turn at the end of these rows unless otherwise stated)
1: Ch2, inc in 2nd ch from hook (2)
2: Inc, sc (3)
3: Sc, inc, sc (4)
4: Sc 2, inc, sc (5)
5: Sc 2, inc, sc 2 (6)
6: Sc2, inc, sc 3 (7)
7: Sc3, inc, sc 3 (8)
8: Sc 4, inc, sc 3 (9)
9: Sc 4, inc, sc 4 (10)
10-11: Sc across (10)
12: sc 4, inc, sc 5 (11)
13: sc 5, inc, sc 5 (12)
14: inc, sc 10, inc (14)
15: inc, sc 12, inc (16)
16: inc, sc 14, inc (18)
Once again, you’ll begin crocheting around the edges.
Row 1: sc 15, inc 3 in one st at the point, sc 15 ch1 and turn (33)
2: sc 15, dec over 3, sc 15 (31)
3: sc across (31)

I pinned everything first. Then, I sewed the legs to the body, the feet to the legs, the tail to the body, the chest spash to the chest, the arms to the chest, the fingers to the arms, the upper jaw to the head, the lower jaw to the head, the eyebrows to the head, the spikes to the body and tail, the mouth to the jaws and the teeth to the mouth. I've got pictures (here: robezpierre.deviantart.com/art… ) of how I put the jaws onto the head, since they're weird. If you have any questions, corrections, improvements, etc., just holler at me, and I'll fix/address them as best I can. :)

Hi, thanks for the free pattern! I'm a little confused by step 20 in the head and body section. I'm reading it as doing 11 single crochets and then increasing for the rest of the round, but that doesn't sound right to me nor does it match your picture. Also I'm pretty sure that would exceed 39 stitches. I'm still pretty new to crocheting so please help me out

Whoops, Sorry! In normal crochet parlance, that's (sc 11, inc) around, so sc 11, then inc once, then sc 11 again, etc. Most people I think use asterisks or parenthesis for that, but I tend to leave those off in any pattern I make; if it's meant to be a different way, I specify. Sorry for the confusion! Good luck!

It has been a while, and I no longer have the original, but I believe it was about 8 inches tall.

Hi Pierre. I'm confused about the feet and toes. Could you explain exactly how to do them in a little more detail?

Thanks for that. I didn't realise you had replied but i figured it out a while ago anyway. That's a good way of putting it.

Hi! So, the feet are worked in rounds, like the body is. Basically, just make a half sphere of yarn. Then, when you're at the point of the toes, you flatten the feet, so that instead of a half sphere, it looks like two layers on top of one another. The toes start by just continuing crocheting in that round; but, in order to give the toe some depth, like in the foot, you want to work on either side of the foot. This is achieved by starting to crochet on one side of the foot, and then switching to the opposite side- making a cone, basically. also, in that way, you can close up the foot sphere without having to stitch it manually- the toes each are worked on either side of the foot, closing it up in that way. I'm not sure if that made any sense, so let me know...

Hi I would like to make this and I have a question. What type of yarn do you use, like thick yarn, thin yarn, bulky?
Reply
:iconrobezpierre:
Robezpierre Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014
Hiya! I use worsted weight, specifically Red Hart super saver. Though different yarns will probably just change the size on Totodile. (I haven't experimented with other yarns very much) Good Luck!

How cute!  I can't even begin to imagine how you think up these patterns--is it a lot of trial and error?
Reply
:iconrobezpierre:
Robezpierre Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013
Yes. But, normally I have an idea of how to make each part before I start on it, so from there it's a matter of making everything work and seem to be in the right proportions with the other bits. And it does help that I'm working from a lot of images, normally. 

Thanks!
