Baby Charmander (with pattern) by aphid777 Baby Charmander (with pattern) by aphid777

I'm still alive!  And it's Charmander! :)  I'm planning on entering this into :iconaltearithe:'s current contest, Pokemon!  Though not this photo because I want to finish all the starters from the first games and a group photo is a must!

Anyway, I'm planning on writing out the patterns for all of them so as usual, please credit me should you use or reference the pattern.  It really does take me a lot of time to write these out!  Also, please don't sell the pattern or finished product since I do not own these characters!  Let me know if you catch any errors!  Thank you!

-Repeat previous step 4 times
-Sc 5, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 3, inc, sc 5 (21)
-FO

**The flame at the end of the tail was made by brushing out yarn.  I was trying to figure out how to make the flames look  more "flame-like" and ended up using this tutorial: 
Yarn Tail Tutorial (Feline) by willowfall by :iconwillowfall: as a guide.  I ironed the brushed out yarn instead of using a hair straightener since I didn't have one, but it seemed to do the trick!

**The eyes and nails are needle felted though I'm sure cut out felt will also work!

I try to use pretty standard abbreviations in my pattern:

magic ring #=single crochet # into magic ring
sc=single crochet stitch
inc=increase
dec=decrease
FO=fasten off

Any numbers after are just specifying how many of that stitch you should make.

It just means to decrease twice in a row.

Hey,

First of all thank you for this amazing pattern. I have never done anything like this before and this pattern makes it very easy to follow. I'm just stuck on a little thing. How do you attach all the parts together. Maybe I'm missing something in the abbreviations seeing how english isn't my main language.  If you maybe have a site or a video that shows me how you attach things I'm sure I can figure it out.
One minor suggestion I have is maybe adding how big charmander is. Mine is turning out bigger then I estimated when looking at the pictures :)
Thanks in advance!

Hello!  Usually before sewing everything together, I lay everything on a flat surface and pin the pieces together.  Only then do I start sewing.  It can be tricky and I admit that I've had to take things apart and re-position.

I do forget to include the size sometimes ^^;  I think my Charmander ended up being about 8 inches long?
