Hey hey crochet lovers. I’m so far behind with my blog posts that I still haven’t shared some of the critters I crocheted back in March, let alone what I’m up to now! I’m determined to get bang up to date though, so first step on the journey is to introduce you to the pink delight that is Hoppip.
This second-generation grass type was a delight to make a delight to look at too. Any Pokemon with a largely circular body tends to whip together pretty well, and Hoppip was no exception. The only more complicated aspect here was introducing some wire to his helicopter leaf blades to make them extra perky. A little bit of twisted jewellery wire did the job but it does make this one unsuitable for kids.
If you are new to crochet or want to get started making crocheted Pokemon then I would recommend Sabrina Somers’ patterns. I’ve done a few now and they’ve all been easy to follow and true to the look and dimensions of their intended monsters.
Yarn: Bright pink and green Rico DK cotton plus yellow, black, read and pink roving for needle-felting.
