Let’s have a big hand for Aipom

Hey hey crochet lovers. It was only when I started crocheting Pokemon that I realised how many are purple. I’m too pernickity to use the same purple on them all, so I clearly need a rainbow of purple shades to hook them all.

This rich bright purple seemed a perfect match for Aipom – the cheeky second generation ape Pokemon – who is most notable for the giant opposable hand on his tail. This makes for a super cute toy but certainly doesn’t help him stand up unaided, even with wire in his tail.

Pattern: www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/aipom-pokemon

Yarn: purple and cream DK cotton yarn

Hook: 3.5mm

Aipom was a great excuse for some cheeky needle-felting
