Hey hey crochet lovers. My next creation was very much inspired by my younger days watching the Pokemon Indigo League cartoon. Togepi was a cute, pocket-sized enigma in the cartoon and just too adorable to overlook when it came to crochet.
I believe this pattern arose from an official Pokemon crochet book, which adds an extra special authenticity to the proceedings. It’s not the simplest pattern I’ve tackled though, and I’m glad I didn’t attempt it before honing my skills. Mastering the cracked shell frill tackles a little work, and Togepi’s pointy crown was even tougher.
The pattern itself provides some templates for felt shapes to add to Togepi’s shell, which many will find very helpful. Needless to say I opted for needle-felting these elements, but the templates were still very helpful.
All in all, I was extremely pleased how this one turned out and he’s just so cuddly.
Hey hey crochet lovers. I’m celebrating my crocheted Pokemon anniversary this month – it’s a full year since I hooked up my first little friend, Bulbasaur. In those 12 months I’ve learned so much, improved my skills and even put together my first pattern. There have been many more projects created than I’ve blogged here so far, so I really need to spend some time catching up, as you’ve only seen about half of the little fellas I’ve crocheted so far.
This tiny fella is one of the quickest makes I’ve had the pleasure of producing so far – he’s basically just a collection of balls and a couple of simple feet and arms – but he packs a lot of character into his tiny form. Igglybuff – the baby form of Jigglypuff – really showcases the needle-felting, which brights his bright cartoony features to life. Don’t they make a lovely pair?
After hooking up a couple of Evelyn Pham’s baby Pokemon patterns I fancied trying my hand at something a little different. For critter number three I turned to WolfDreamer’s Jigglypuff pattern.
Withthe main body being one big pink ball, this one was very quick to construct. I didn’t really like the ears in the original pattern so made my own on the round instead of flat. After building my needle-felting confidence with Eevee I dove straight in with Jigglypuff’s eyes and I’m so pleased with how they came out. A little more needle felting adding the mouth and the black depths to the ears too.
