BT21 Mang Plush ♥ Crochet Pattern

BT21 Mang Crochet Pattern
Can you believe we're almost finished with all the BT21 patterns? Time flies by so quickly! I still remember the first BT21 pattern I crocheted. Anyways, today I'm making Mang. Created by J-Hope. In the making of the BT21, J-Hope had a solid idea from the get-go but throughout the production, they continued to edit his character. I'm glad they did though because I love the end result and the color palette they ended up using for Mang, I think was perfect.

"While dancing, Mang is cooler than ever. Always wear masks."

I've been looking forward to crocheting Mang because he's the most unique character out of all of BT21. But also very nervous because of his unusual shape. The biggest challenge was making Mang's head because Mang has many important features that I had to incorporate such as his horse-shape mask head, heart nose, and mane/tail thing. He was tricky to make but I'm very proud with how he came out and I hope you enjoy this post. lol

With a scrap piece of black yarn add nostrils to Mang's nose. Then sew the nose to the head, stuff as you go. Next, fold down the neck part down and sew around, it should look like a thin donut. Turn the next piece upside down (round part should be facing down), pin with sewing pins and sew down to the head.

Fold the "mane" piece in half lengthwise and sew along the side closed. While you're sewing create these hair bumps by inserting your tapestry needle all the way up (round part of your fold) and sew a few stitches all the way down so that the stitches weighs down and create a bump, repeat until you have 5 bumps.

Attach the tail at the end of the "mane" piece. Next, pin down the mane part to the side of Mang's head and sew on each side so that the mane securely stays on. Don't sew the tail to the body! Pin the ears next to mane where the second bump is and sew down the ears.

Assembly
Time to sew everything together! There is going to be lots of sewing, especially for the head but if you want to save time you can always use hot glue certain parts (like the mane and head). Just be careful because hot glue is permanent, unlike sewing. If you are going to sew I highly recommend using sewing pins to keep everything intact and look at pictures for reference.

Start by sewing the arms to the body. Next, sew the head to the body. What I did was sew the bottom part of the head (not the neck) and sew it to the top of the body. You can choose to either sew or hot glue the end of the mask (neck) to the body but I just left it as is because A. I was lazy and B. to make it appear more like a mask.

With black and white felt cut out various different circle sizes and glue together until they look like Mang's eyes. Glue the eyes to Mang's head and press lightly to secure. You're finally done!!!
