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

      First I made a dough out of flour, salt and water. I shaped it into a stand and put it into the oven. When it was done I made glue out of flour, water and salt. I mixed those things in a pot cooked it. I put glue all over the Tamagotchi stand!!!

      It looked icky.
      After it has dried I painted it.

      Then I took, what-it's-called?, white fluffy stuff, synthetic cotton?

      And I throw that fluff into the green paint water!!!

      Waiting for it to dry was boring so I used microwave.

      Then I had green, green, fluff of home.

      And YAY! It is finished!

      The R.I.P Tamagotchi Stand

      EDIT:
      I might cut down on the fluff....

      I'm beyond confused and sorry for the confused title I have no idea what to title this. Ok on to the question. You guys know how tamagotchi can like somewhat talk. How they'll call out your name when sad or hungry. I woke up this morning to my twins as adults calling me literally and I quote "Anon, we want to play"* (roughly what they said I should of taken a picture but I was panicked) I have never seen them say that before. Like they were near full happiness and fed so I was baffled. Even the attention icon was on. Again baffled. It went away after a few minutes.
      So to summarize, has anyone seen similar behavior in their tamagotchi, or other odd things like this? 
    • By Maxton
      So, I have the set of Tamagotchis called "Tamagotchu", I believe, and I really don't understand how they work too well.  I know that they need to be connected every once in a while, but it seems that sometimes when I connect them they get mad at each other?  Does anyone know what this is and what's happening?

      hello. i’m new here so bare with me. but i’ve come here today to talk about Qpet. incase you don’t know what i’m talking about, it’s basically like a chinese knockoff of the real tamagotchi color. good now that’s out of the way. i’ve owned a lot of tamagotchis in my time my latest one being tamagotchi friends but that was quite awhile ago because i lost it LOL. so i saw a commercial about them and it was in that exact moment i remembered they still exist. i googled the new tamagotchi on to find they are almost $70! which isn’t that bad but in my current situation it kinda is. so i totally gave up being able to have one of those...at least for now. i end up on a website called Aliexpress and find something called a Qpet with color. (i got the one that has cherries on it)  looks cute, was way cheaper than the real thing and was pretty interesting. so i bought it not too long ago and it is yet to get here. so i have a few questions for anyone that also has one. just please don’t bash me for having “a fake tamagotchi” it’s only temporary until i can afford the real one 😅
       
      1. is it actually any good?
      2. is it possible to mod it like you would with the real ones?
      3. can you dress them up and change their rooms?
       
      alright have a good day ♥︎

      Helloo!! Sorry if this has been discussed, I was having a hard time finding a topic that was specific to what I was seeing.
      I have an iPad Air running iOS 12.4.1, I've made sure the software is up to date. I have the Tamagotchi ON (Magical. Its purple) and I am able to connect to the App just fine, but whenever I try to take my items in the Present Box home, the connection fails every time.
      I replaced the batteries in my ON last week, maybe 4-5 days ago. Has anyone run into this issue before?
      Thank you to all who may be able to help. ❤️
    • By Pingasatchi
      The instruction manual for the Tamagotchi ON claims that twins appear "every once in a while, " implying that it is a rare occurrence. I am challenging this claim with circumstantial evidence that points towards it actually being based on genetics in a similar way to how physical traits are determined.
      I am currently in the 15th generation of my Tamagotchi family. After tallying up which generations included twins and which didn't, I found that there were 10 out of 15 instances in which twins occurred. You could even take the first generation out of that, since it is impossible to have twins on the first generation, which would make it 10 out of 14 instances. This means that over 70% of the time, I have received twins, which is way too likely to be, "every once in a while." 
      This could be chalked up to really good luck, but it's not as fun that way, is it? I honestly believe, based on my results, that my Tamagotchi bloodline is somehow predisposed to twins. My first set of twins happened immediately in my second generation, which sparked the long line of twins to come. I think Bandai knew what they were doing with this, as in they intentionally made it this way just to add depth to the genetics mechanic as a whole. 
      Let me know what y'all think.
