Poro from League of Legends, LoL

Is anyone here a fan of the multiplayer online video game, League of Legends?  If so, you'll probably recognize this fluffy, little guy!

Yep! It's a poro!

According to the League of Legends Wiki, poros are these mysterious, magical, and lovable inhabitants originating from the Howling Abyss.  They are cute and fluffy, with a heart-shaped underbelly because they're made of love.  A poro's horns perk up when it is excited, and drops down when it is scared.

Isn't it just adorable?!

My husband happens to be an avid LoL player, so he appreciated seeing one of these little furballs take on a three-dimensional form in real life!

Wanting to closely imitate the furry texture of a poro's body, I used white Bernat Pipsqueak yarn.  It was a difficult trial to count the nearly-invisible stitches that this fluffy yarn naturally yielded, so I challenged the little tactile senses on my fingertips to feel for each stitch.  While progress was slower, it was well worth it to try out fun, new yarn types!  I also created my fluffiest project yet, so I guess that's a win too!

The rest of the poro was quite simple to make using the regular yarn that I was familiar with -- good ol' Red Heart Soft and Caron Simply Soft!  The tongue was simply an elongated sphere without decreases at the end (hence creating a U-shape when flattened), and the horns were cones made by gradually increasing in the round.

All in all, this was a quick and easy project!  Crocheted poros would make excellent gifts for LoL enthusiasts.  With the holiday season coming up, making a herd of these for your gamer friends would be quite amusing and charming, wouldn't you say?

If there's enough interest for an actual written pattern, let me know and I'll post the directions!  (It's quite simple, given only basic shapes that this project requires.)

Hope you all enjoyed reading about this crocheted poro! Stay warm, all!

Love,

  1. Oh my god this is the cutest! I would love it you put this pattern up in your etsy store! Bernat pipsqueak is honestly one of my favorite yarns, I recently made a massive quagsire, counting the stitches and losing count was a pain but it was worth it in the end!

    1. Hi dear! I'm so sorry for taking so long to get back to you, but I lost the original pattern and finally got it re-done! Here's the link to the free pattern if you'd still like to make a Poro for yourself! <3 I hope you enjoy it, and I'd love to see your Quagsire if you'd like to share! (They are the cutiest Pokemon ever!)
