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!

Tail:

**Note: Each round may not end at the same spot as the previous round but not to worry!  This helps with the curved shape of the tail.

-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!

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!

Hi! I love this Charmander, is incredible! I'm going to try it out.
Although I'm very new to the crochet world (very very new!), I'll try my best.
Thank you so much for the pattern!

Sorry for the newbie question in your pattern when you say incx2 does that mean you increase twice in a row or make 4 stitches in one go? XP
I tried looking it up first XO

Hi! I absolutely adore your patterns :D I finished my pikachu last week, and now I'm on the final stages of charmander :D
Thank you for providing the patterns :D

I just wanted to ask a quick question about the 'fire' on the tail. How did you attach the yarn? Did you brush it before hand and then sew it onto the tail? Or did you knot it all together and slid it inside the tail, and then brushed it out?

Thanks again!

No problem! :)  And I'm glad you're enjoying my patterns!

For the tail, I made bundles of yarn and brushed and ironed them before tying them into the tail.  There is a tutorial linked at the bottom of the pattern if you'd like to refer to that for more in-depth instructions :)  Hope that helps!
