So I have been wanting to make one of these little cuties for a while now and I keep putting it off to do other things.  

Well tonight was that same day.  personaly I think for working at 1am its not to shabby for a first attempt.

Heres what I did
 In white yarn
MR 6
Inc all -12
sc all -12
inc sc - 18
sc all -18
inc sc2 -24
sc all -24
inc sc3-30
sc all-30
(work next row in BLO to make base)
dec sc- forgot to count the stitches after this round sorry
dec sc2
dec sc
then finish off by stuffing and weaving the tail back and forth in the last few stitches to sew it shut.

In black yarn
chain 7
Sc in second chain from hook and across (6 st)
sc back and forth for 12 rows leaving long tail.

Your white piece should have a slight cone shape so you will be using that long tail to shape your Onigiri.  Position the nori (black rectangle) on the 4th row from the close, lining up the other end on the other side also on the 4th row and sew it in place.  Try not to over tighten, but pull it tight enough to shape it into a Onigiri ball, if you don't know what that is its a triangle shaped rice ball popular in Japan often with something pickled or salted inside. From here you get to decide on what type of eyes or no eyes at all.  I went with the  > < eyes because he knows he is going to be eaten.  I think I will make more when I am not dead tired.

As always if you make one I would love to see it!!
