Introduction: Jake the Dog / Cake the Cat Amigurumi
Finalist in the
Fiber Arts Contest
These are crochet dolls made to look like the main characters from Adventure Time!
Finn and Fionna are crocheted entirely with single crochet. I don't have a pattern for them, but they're really just basic shapes! Everything is done in the round with the right side facing out, and they have wire in their arms and legs to make them pose-able.
Cake and Jake follow the same basic pattern, and where you sew on the arms/legs changes whether they stand upright or on all fours. Here's a basic pattern for Jake:
• Size US H or smaller crochet hook
• Red Heart Super Saver yarn (or other 4-ply worsted weight yarn) in:
• Small amount of black and white felt
• Tapestry needle
• Wire/pipe c leaner for arms/legs (optional)

2) (sc 3, sc 2 in last three sts) twice (18)
3) sc 5, sc dec over next three sts (the toe), sc rest of the way around but sc dec (over 2) once in the other end of the oval (the heel) (15)
