Slime Pattern from Stardew Valley

Aaaaand I made another Stardew Valley pattern. This one is very simple and quick to whip up on your own, so I will write it directly here rather than doing a PDF.



The green one was the prototype. Once again, the second time around with some tweaks I got the shape I wanted. I also added the star bobble because CUTE.

I used a thinner yarn, the Caron Simply Soft yarns, because I wanted them to have that slime sheen. They turned out really cute and squishy--I wish I could have a Stardew Valley themed party and have a Slime Slingshot game for the guests. And themed foods...and... guess I just need to make local friends that play Stardew Valley!

Weave the tail of yarn through all 6 stitches, going from the middle to the outside each time, with a yarn needle.

Planet June has an excellent tutorial for this: http://www.planetjune.com/blog/the-ultimate-finish-for-amigurumi/

If you are adding a star bobble, you can leave a tail to chain to form the bobble. Then weave the excess yarn back through the chain and into the body. 

You can add a star bobble by using the tiny star pattern by Repeat Crafter Me with yellow yarn:
Glue it to the antennae you made. Alternatively, you could use a pipe cleaner and a star bead, or a pom pom, really anything you like!
