Crochet Hovernyan from Yo-Kai Watch 2!

Hovernyan!






 My oldest son loves all things Yo-Kai.  With the Yo-Kai Watch 2 games out in America now I thought I would make him the new Hovernyan Yo-kai!   This pattern may be messy and has only been tested by me, so if anything is confusing, feel free to ask or help correct my pattern! Thanks, Natasha (mnopxs2).







I used all worsted weight yarn (you may use whatever you wish tho)  Feel free to use whatever colors you wish, I just used yarn I had at home.

Colors:
Blue (Head/Body)
White (Head/Body/Belt Buckle)
Yellow (Eyes)
Black (Eyes/Mouth)
Pink (Nose/Mouth)
Purple (Ears)
Light Blue/Turquoise (Belt)
Silver/Grey (Belt)
Red (Cape/Belt Buckle)

Size E-4/3.50mm crochet hook
Polyfil for stuffing
Scissors
Yarn Needle

*He came out about 6 1/2 inches tall for me (Ears to Feet), but that will all depend on how tight or loose you crochet :)
