Patterns for tamagotchi cases

Recommended Posts

I've been making some cases for my tamas and there aren't a lot of free patterns out there so I thought I'd share.

Basic principle, crochet a circle until if fits the back, make the sides, then finish off with a slip stitch.

 

You may want to randomise your increases to get more of a circle shape or stagger them i.e. instead of starting with a 2sc followed by 4 x sc, do 2 x sc first, then continue the (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) pattern because if you increase in the same spot, you’ll get a hexagon shape. I recommend using a cotton type wool and I used a 3.25 mm hook.

 

Connection models (half double crochet) (Pictured on the left)

  1. Magic loop with 10 starting sc (10)
  2. 2hdc in every stitch (20)
  3. (2hc, hdc) repeat (30)
  4. (2hdc, hdc, hdc) repeat (40)
  5. Hdc around (36)
    1. You want to work 4 decreases in at the points marked in the diagram
    2. For a keychain hole - ch 2, skip one stich and hdc in the next stitch
    3. For an antenna hole just chain 3 (or more) and skip 2
  6. Slip stitch around to finish (36)

 

Bunny ears

  1. Magic circle (6)
  2. 2sc in every stitch (12)
  3. 2sc, sc (18)
  4. Sc (18) for 6 rounds
  5. Dec, 4 x sc and repeat until there are 6 stitches left
  6. Bind off leaving a long tail for sewing.
  7. You'll have to join with a couple of stitches to support the weight of the ears.

 

Vintage models (single crochet) (Pictured in the centre)

  1. Magic loop (6)
  2. 2sc in every stitch (12)
  3. (2sc, sc) repeat (18)
  4. (2sc, sc, sc) repeat (24)
  5. (2sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (30)
  6. (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (36)
  7. (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (42)
  8. 4 hdc, dc, 4 hdc, dc, 2 hdc, dc, 4 hdc, dc, hdc to finish the row (38)
  9. 6sc, dc, 4 sc, ch 3, skip 1, 4 sc, dc, 6 sc, dc, sc to finish the row
  10. Slip stitch around to finish

I don't tend to use cases myself, but it's really great to see someone putting in the effort to share patterns!

 

Just to clarify something, though: I presume that the crochet terminology used here is American, as opposed to British? (I actually learned the American terms myself, as most patterns and guides that I'm interested in tend to use them, but it's worth knowing that "double crochet" in British terminology is equivalent to what's called "single crochet" in the American terms, amongst other strange things.)

 

Also, your bunny-eared case is adorable. :lol:

I wasn't even aware there were different terms for US vs the UK, thanks for letting me know ^^

I am using the US crochet terms.

 

Here's the picture with the marked decreases I forgot to upload.

I'm trying to come up with a single crochet pattern for the connections, but I find that the cases tend to come out a bit loose.

I'll try and come up with a pattern for the Ps when mine arrives.

If anyone else has patterns or tips to share, please do!

Hello all, this is my first post, so bear with me.

 

I recently purchased a connection v2 on ebay, and love it!

The first thing I did was look up a crochet case pattern, as I want to protect it from more scratches than the ones it came with :/ (but, it was only $20!)

So, I stumbled across this pattern on TamaTalk!

As you said, when I tried to use this to create a case for the v2 it was loose. After bumbling for a bit with decreasing some stitches, I found that using a smaller gauge yarn works better. I had some old rainbow baby yarn laying around (unfortunately I don't know the exact gauge), and using that and a 4.25mm hook I created the case below. I used the pattern from the link above up till the row containing 30 stitches, then sc around until desired height, fasten off. Hope this helps, and I absolutely love the bunny ear case! Thank you for your pattern!

The rainbow effect looks so good, I love it!

Using smaller gauge yarn is a great idea, thanks for the suggestion, I don't like using decreases so much because it makes small kinks in the circumference of the case. I found that decreasing earlier and then crocheting a few rows over them decreases the noticeability of the bumps, but I'll try your suggestion next time.

Thanks again :)

Came up with two new patterns and also found that the double slip stitch gives a nice, raised edge perfect for colour tamagotchis.

Connection models (single crochet)

 

  • Magic loop (6)
  • 2sc in every stitch (12)
  • (2sc, sc) repeat (18)
  • (2sc, sc, sc) repeat (24)
  • (2sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (30)
  • (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (36)
  • (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (42)
  • (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (48)
  • (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (54)
  • (2sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc) repeat (60)
  • Sc all around (60)
  • Sc all around, decreasing every 7-8 sc
    • Make holes where appropriate
      • Keyhole (ch3, skip one stitch)
      • Antenna - experiment
  • You can either:
    • Double slip stich around (what I did in the picture)
    • Sc another round and then slip stitch (recommended)

 

Tamagotchi Ps (double crochet)

 

 

  • 12 dc in magic loop (12)
  • 2dc in each st (24)
  • 2dc, dc (36)
  • 2dc, dc, dc (48)
  • 2dc, dc, dc, dc (60)
  • Dc until 4 stitches remain, chain 5 and skip 4 to make hole for lanyard
  • *sc, sc, sc, sc, dec* continue until end of round
  • Double slip stitch to finish off

I kind of don't like the huge hole on the Ps cover, and will probably use single crochet next time so I can make two individual holes for the IR port and the lanyard.

Just an idea, but I wonder if weaving a small ribbon around the opening would help with the loose fit? It would look cute too.

These are great designs and so cute! I have been making cases for my Tamas for years and love to use soft and fluffy yarns as well as the I Love this Cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby. It's so fun to make characters and cute kawaii designs. don't like doing decreases, so what I've found is if I only increase the first 3 rows ( 2sc in each, 2 sc in every other & 2 sc in each third) and then do my very last row very tightly, it works out perfectly without having the lumps from decreases. It fits nice and snug and if not then I just frog that last row and do it with a smaller hook.

I've seen that on some handmade cases and it's really cute! There's also a flat ribbon variation but I can't seem to find any pictures.

I found that decreasing evenly and then crocheting another row or two on top of that hides the decreases pretty well and makes the fit very snug, but I'll give it a try with a smaller hook too!

 

Found some youtube tutorials on cases that might be useful:

 

 

 

And to finish the post off, here's a little mod I did of one of my cases. I cut the wings out of felt and sewed them on in a spiral with contrasting thread. Felt is really good for little decorations.

Just a quick note to the other Guides: I've re-opened this per request because Eggiweg has new content to add, and crochet patterns don't go out-of-date like Tamagotchi information in old threads can. ;)

Tamagotchi m!x/meets case

I used a 2.3 mm hook and 8 ply cotton yarn for reference.  Crochet in both loops unless stated otherwise.

Again, when following steps 3-5, you may want to offset your increases so that they don’t occur in the same place to get a more circular shape rather than a hexagonal shape.

  1. Magic loop (6)
  2. 2sc in every stitch (12)
  3. (2sc, sc) repeat (18)
  4. (2sc, sc, sc) repeat (24)
  5. Continue consecutively increasing until you are increasing in every 8th sc (54)
  6. Chain 6 sc and skip 6 stiches to create a hole for a strap, 11 x sc, 2sc, (sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2sc) repeat 4 times, 8 sc
  7. Sc all around
  8. Sc all around
  9. Sc all around
  10. Slip stitch in both loops
  11. Slip stitch in back loop (as shown by red arrow in photo)
  12. Finish off and weave in the yarn tail

      This is a poll for a game I really want Nintendo to make for the Switch to make up for Mario Kart Tour (which I hate a bunch, mostly for its heavy microtransactions). To differentiate from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I want this game to be another Double Dash game and to re-feature EVERY past driver (a la Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) that has been playable at some point in the series' near-30-year history (Petey Piranha, Funky Kong, Wiggler, R.O.B., Pac-Man, Mametchi, etc.)

      I stumbled across this in a branch of TK Maxx (the UK version of TJ Maxx) today, and I couldn't resist picking it up;

      It's an officially-licensed metal and enamel keychain, featuring a nostalgic element of the original toys that we enthusiasts sometimes bemoan ("Oh no, they only remember the Tamagotchi as a toy that poops and dies!"), albeit humourously framed. I'm pretty happy with this find because it was the only one that they had left and it had been reduced in price to £1.70! (A quick check online tells me that they originally retailed for £7.99, which, even though this is a really nice and surprisingly big keychain, I feel is a little high.)
      These were made by the UK giftwares company Paladone. Their goods are sometimes sold in North America too, so this is just a quick heads-up to let anyone who might be interested know that these are out there, presumably now discounted after the pre-Christmas impulse-buy period for items like this has come and gone.
      Interestingly, even though this is a British product, it doesn't use the angel death-screen from the original Western localised version of the toys, instead opting for the gravestone from the Japanese versions (though without Obaketchi). I'm sure that some people will swear blind that they remember it being this way originally, as a result. But it's still a nice-looking little piece of merchandise, and I certainly can't argue with the price!

      Hello, I am Deru-sama, AKA Dale8998. I have a plan to make an abridged anime containing all 400 episodes. 😀
       
      However, I need voice actors. You can't have an abridged anime just by cutting up an episode and calling it finished, you have to slap in a bunch of jokes. (For example, Goku squeaking whenever he's crushed in someone's hands during a TFS episode, or Tea being a kleptomaniac in YGOTAS.)
      Here's the questions:
      1. How old are you? (I need you to be 13 or older, because I'm going for a PG-13 audience in order to keep myself from getting COPPA banned. If you don't want to say, just give a range.)
      2. Do you have any experience with voice acting? (If you do, it's a bonus, but first-time actors are fine too.)
      3. What time zone are you in?
      4. When are you available? I try to get one upload a week, but I can do it more slowly or quicker depending on when you're available.
      5. YouTube link?
