A few days ago I had the idea of making a pirate couple to celebrate Valentine's Day, my friend @yetsimar suggested me to do Davy Jones and Calypso but guess what? It turned out to take me longer than expected and it took me a long time doing just Davy Jones and he is the one I share with you today, I hope you like it. I wove all the amigurumi with acrylic yarn and # 4 crochet hook (1.25mm), it is filled with antiallergic synthetic fiber and measures approximately 16 centimeters high.
I started by making the human leg, that is, the one that keeps its foot with a black boot. I knitted an oval starting the base with 5 chains, once the desired size was reached, I knitted without increases a few rounds and then I did decreases to make the ankle, I knitted increases for the calf, and continued making the edge of the boot. Then I changed to green yarn and lifting the stitches corresponding to the inner edge of the boot, I made some increases and continued knitting in a straight way until I got the whole leg.
For the second leg, which is like a crustacean leg, with red and black thread at the same time I started with 4 single crochets in a ring, I was making progressive increases in each round, leaving only the red thread for the widest part of The leg, apart with the green thread, I made a woven edge with irregular peaks to resemble the torn edge of the pants, I knitted in a circular way placing the leg inside until I obtained the entire leg.
For the body I joined both legs and continued knitting straight, apart with black thread I knit the edge of the black shirt that crosses the body, then I joined both parts and with the same black thread I began to make decreases to create the torso, I was also knitting a triangle with white thread stitches in the center to simulate the white shirt, I placed the fabric in suspense to make the arms apart.
For the arm with the hand with tentacles, I started in a similar way to a human hand, that is, I started the fingers with 4 single crochets in a ring, but the index finger and the little finger I started with chains on which I wove increases so that curls will be created, then I joined all the fingers and continued shaping the hand, I changed to black thread to make the arm, and with white thread I wove the wavy edge between the hand and the arm of the shirt White.
For the arm that has the crustacean hand, I started by making the upper part of the pliers with red thread, with 4 single crochets in a ring, I was progressively increasing and giving it a curved shape by taking only the back side of the stitches in the half of the work, in the same way I proceeded with the smaller side of the pliers but with black and red thread at the same time, I joined both parts and with decreases I finished the pliers, I continued the weaving with black thread until obtaining the arm, with thread white I made the wavy cuff of the shirt.
I filled in the arms and the body, I resumed the body fabric joining the arms on both sides, making decreases to complete the torso and knitting a beige triangle that forms the character's exposed chest, I made the neck with beige. Then with black thread I made the edge of the crossed shirt and with white thread I made the edge of the white shirt with a wavy neck.
I made a belt with brown thread and two metal rings, weaving three chains and on these making the necessary rounds to surround the body. Also with brown thread I braided the shirt collar and placed two plastic beads on it.
For the head with beige thread I wove 6 single crochets in a ring, increasing by 5 rounds until obtaining the desired width, I continued straight and then I made decreases, filled with fiber and sewed it to the body.
For the face I made each tentacle separately, the mustache tentacle was made flat, starting with chains and then weaving single stitches and increases to create ripples, some tentacles follow the same shape but another I made them in a similar way to the fingers from the first hand, that is, on the basis of the round or tubular fabric of 4 points I wove chains on which I wove increases so that they ended in a wavy way. I made the eyebrows by weaving chains and stitches on them, then I sewed them to the face, with two blue beads I made the eyes.
For the hat with green thread I wove a flat circle on which I continued the circular knitting in a straight way, then I made increases in three points of the hat so that the flap of the hat was triangular, then I wove two triangles in the central part of the flap, over These with golden thread I wove a round of slipped stitches and sewed beads on the sides of the hat that resemble the pebbles, shells and things stuck to the bottom of the sea.
For the jacket I started to knit chains on which I knitted single crochets, I created the holes for the arms by skipping stitches and knitting chains in their place, I continued the knitting up to the waist where I started knitting increases to expand the width of the jacket. Then I picked up the hole stitches and knit the sleeves straight, making a hem that folds at the cuff.
With golden thread I wove the edges of the jacket and the details of the front, with two metal studs I made the details, with transparent nylon thread I sewed the plastic beads around the jacket.
I hope you liked my Davy Jones amigurumi version, it was a hard work of many days and I am fascinated with the result, I wish that my effort has been worth it for the people who follow me and motivate me to continue weaving more complex projects like this.
