Baby Pikachu (with pattern) by aphid777 Baby Pikachu (with pattern) by aphid777
First off, this pattern is incomplete.  I was not able to write proper instructions for the tail, just a really rough one that I have posted in my scraps here: fav.me/d74nhwc  I apologize for that, but I hope the notes I have will help!

I don't know if I'm completely happy with how Pikachu's face turned out.. I don't think he looks quite accurate, but it was difficult balancing accuracy with a similar style to the other three.  The ears are floppy on purpose because I like floppy ears :D  Eyes and other details are needle felted, though I'm sure regular cut out felt or embroidering will work too.   Let me know if you catch any errors!  Hope you guys have a great weekend and happy crocheting! :)

Arms:

**For optional fingers, include puff stitches.  Otherwise, ignore the slip stitches and puff stitches and just do single crochet stitches.


Puff stitch:
Do 3 incomplete double crochet stitches (all but the last step of the double crochet stitch) into the same stitch.   You should have 4 loops on your hook at this point.  Yarn over and draw the yarn through all 4 loops to complete.  Make sure  to tighten this stitch as much as you can before continuing to prevent holes from forming.

Can't wait to try this pattern! The only thing I would change, though, would be to make the stripes on his back brown, as well as brown at the base of his tail. Very nice job nonetheless. It's the best one I've found so far! SO excited.

I really want to make one for my friend but I'm getting confused and keep messing up. I'm not quite undersranding when you say the [sc 2, inc] and so on. When I try it, I don't get the right amount of stitches and it then looks deformed. I'm still relatively new to crocheting.

the brackets mean to repeat, so you would do 2 single stitches, then do an increase stitch. So it's adding a stitch onto your round. So if it said [sc 4, inc] you would stitch 4 then increase and repeat till done with that round

:iconaphid777:
aphid777 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It means to do 2 single crochet stitches, then increase in the third stitch, and repeat until you reach the end of the round.  I'm not too sure how else to explain it :(

Thanks a lot!  Your cousin is very lucky! :D  If you're having trouble finding felt, I've bought some online before :)  And yes, I do come up with these patterns on my own.  I've just done enough that I can kind of figure out shapes now and of course, there's tons of trial and error ^^;

I usually use any worsted weight yarn.  I use a lot of Red Heart Supersaver brand since it's one of the more inexpensive brands (until I can afford better quality stuff ^^;)

aphid777 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I don't have instructions on where to attach everything since I generally just eyeball it.  It helps if you lay everything on a flat surface and pin the pieces together before sewing the parts together.

Hello!  I needle felted the brown striped onto the body after assembling everything.  You can also cut out some brown felt and glue/sew it on :)
