South Park’s Cartman Pattern

By: Edward Yong

South Park’s Cartman Pattern By: Edward Yong I created Cartman for one of my friends because

I created Cartman for one of my friends because he asked for the South Park characters as a

wedding gift. Even though I thought it was a strange gift I made them anyway. Cartman was the first character I made so he’s a bit rough looking. As I continued making the other characters I worked out a base pattern for all of them. I wanted to remake Cartman but because of my tight deadline and him being much fatter than the others, I decided to leave it alone (i.e. he’s a unique pattern). The other characters will be published as another pattern. If there are any corrections to the pattern please feel free to contact me know and I will update it!

I used a 3.5mm (E) Hook and 10-ply worsted yarn for this pattern but that is not a requirement. I tend not to worry about gauge on my pieces. As long as the yarn and hook are of the appropriate and equivalent size it will still work out fine.

Most of the rounds for each piece will be joined unless otherwise stated. I found working in continuous rounds did not create a nice division between the different colours.

Materials Required:

- Beige, turquoise, red, brown, yellow, and black coloured yarn

- Fibrefill

- White felt

- 3.5mm (E) hook

- Yarn needle

- Sewing needle and thread

- Black embroidery floss

Continue to stuffing as you work on the piece. Rnd 16: *6sc, dec* x 6, ss into 1st st, ch 1 (42) Rnd 17: *5sc, dec* x 6, join with 1st st F/O and leave the large opening alone for the legs to attach.

F/O and leave a tail long enough to sew closed the 4 st opening and attach the foot to the leg.

Repeat the above process to create a second leg. Using the tail of the first leg, sew the two together before beginning the next round.

Rnd 8: 36sc, join with 1st st F/O and leave a long tail for attaching legs to body. Stuff the piece firmly.

Hand and Arm: (Make 2) Using Yellow Rnd 1: 6sc into magic circle, ss into 1st st, ch 1 (6) Rnd 2: *sc, inc* x 3, ss into 1st st, ch 1 (9) Rnd 3: 8sc, 3hdc in last st but do not finish the first 2hdc (i.e. do not pull through the 3 loops at the end before next stitch) ensuring that before you finish the last hdc there are 7 loops on the hook, sc, into last st, ss into 1st st, ch 1 Rnd 4: 9sc (ensure to go into the sc on the last st of previous round instead of the hdc), ss into 1st st, ch 1 Rnd 5: 9sc, ss into 1st st, ch 1 Begin stuffing the hand. Continue stuffing as you work on the piece.

Rnd 6a: 9sc in front loop only, ss into 1st st F/O and weave in tail. Attach Red to any back loop on Rnd 5 (I always attached it to the joining stitch from previous colour to ensure the seam continues)

Rnd 6b: 9sc, ss into 1st st, ch 1 Rnd 7-12: 9sc, ss into 1st st, ch 1

Stuff the arm moderately and leave room at the top. Fold the opening in half to line up the stitches then sc across the top to seal the arm closed (4sc). Ensure that the fold is with the length of the hand and not perpendicular to it (i.e. the flat seam so line up with the thumb). F/O and leave a long enough tail to attach the arm to the body.

Assembly:

1)

Attach the legs to the body. Line up the stitches at the bottom of the body to the top of the

2)

legs. I used a whip stitch to bring the two pieces together. Add extra stuffing and shape the piece before closing off the opening. I had to flatten the body slightly to get the elongated shape of Cartman. Attach the head to the top of the body. I attempted to line up the 30st opening of the head

3)

with the Rnd 5 on the body. Add extra stuffing and shape the head before closing off the opening. Again, I had to flatten the head to make it the correct shape. Attach the “puff” to the hat. Slightly stuff the puff before closing off the opening.

4)

Attach the hat to the head. Angle the hat on the head to designate which side is the back and which side is the front. The hat may be a tight fit so slide it on as best as possible. Pinning the piece may help with sewing it in place correctly.

With white felt, create the eyes. I cut out white ovals for the whites of the eyes and tied

6)

French Knots with black embroidery thread for the pupils. You can try and use black felt for the pupils but I found cutting out the tiny dots to difficult. Position the eyes right below the hat. The top of the ovals should be pointed together

7)

while the bottom of the ovals should be pointed away. Sew the eyes to the head. Using black embroidery floss, embroider on the eyebrows and mouth. I gave Cartman a

frown and angry eyebrows. Using black embroidery floss, embroider a line down the middle of the torso for the opening of the jacket. Tie some French Knots evenly up the left side of the line to represent buttons.

9)

Attach the arms to either side of the body where the head and torso meet. Ensure that the thumbs on the hands are pointed forward.

Ensure that the thumbs on the hands are pointed forward. 10) Attach feet to the legs.

Now it’s complete!

Hope you enjoyed making this as much as I did. I made several attempts at the various body shapes. At one point I was about to throw this thing across the room but I think it turned out great and am extremely pleased with the results.
