Baby Squirtle (with pattern) by aphid777 Baby Squirtle (with pattern) by aphid777
I am on a roll :)  Pikachu is already in the works :iconpikalaplz:  Anyway, here is Squirtle!  Hope you guys like him!

As usual, I ask that you please credit me should you use or alter this pattern!  I spent my time not studying and typing this up instead!  You probably don't want me as your dentist.. ._. Kidding, I will be an awesome dentist ;)  Also, please don't sell the finished product since I do not own this character.  Let me know if you catch any errors!  Happy crocheting!

25.  FO

-------


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.

1.  Magic ring: 6
2.  Inc around (12)
3.  Sc 3, puff, sl st, puff, sl st, puff, sl st, sc 3 (12)

4.  Sc 3, inc, sc 4, inc, sc 3 (14)
5.  Sc around (14)

6.  Sc 4, inc, sc 4, inc, sc 4 (16)
7.  Sc 4, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 4 (18)
8.  Sc around (18)

9.  Sc 5, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 5 (20)
10.  FO

(The FO point should be in the midline of the underside of the arm.)



-------

Feet:

**For the puff stitches this time, I wanted the toes to be larger so I added one more stitch.
Do 4 incomplete double crochet stitches (all but the last step of the double crochet stitch) into the same stitch.   You should have 5 loops on your hook at this point.  Yarn over and draw the yarn through all 5 loops to complete.

Same thing applies, toes are optional!  Substitute puffs and slip stitches with single crochet stitches if you don't want toes (but who can resist that!).


1.  Magic ring: 6
2.  Inc around (12)
3.  [Sc, inc] around (18)
4.  Sc 5, inc, puff, sl st, puff, sl st, puff, inc, sc 5, inc (21)

8.  Sc 3, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 4 (17)
9.  Inc, sc 4, inc, sc 3, inc, sc 2, inc, sc 4 (21)
10.  [Sc 6, inc] around (24)
11.  FO


(His feet should be feet shaped so make sure to keep that in mind when attaching and stuffing!)

-------

Tail:

**Be sure to stuff as you go along.  Stuff more at the tip of the tail (rounds 1-8) to give it the round shape.  Do not overstuff in the middle portion though or else you will have trouble wrapping and sewing/shaping the tail.

1.  Magic ring: 6
2.  Inc around (12)
3.  Sc around (12)
4.  [Sc 3, inc] around (15)
5-7.  Sc around 3 times (15)
8.  [Sc 3, dec] around (12)
9-12.  Sc around 4 times (12)
13.  [Sc 3, inc] around (15)
14.  Sc around (15)
15.  [Sc 4, inc] (18)
16-20.  Sc around 5 times (18)
21.  [Sc 4, dec] around (15)
22.  Sc around (15)
23.  [Sc 3, dec] (12)
24.  Sc around (12)
25.  FO

**Note on assembling: When sewing on his head and limbs, I lay everything on a flat surface because I wanted that "belly-flopping" shape.  The head and limbs all ended up being part way between the yellow and brown of the shell.  Don't worry about this because the white rim will end up bordering along the shell and limbs and help to give it a nice shape and finish.

**For the white rim around the shell, I single crocheted along a long chain and sewed this strip along the edges of the shell and body parts.  The length will probably vary depending on how you've put your Squirtle together.  I assembled everything first before making the rim.  I ended up needing about 85 stitches in length.  Before addition of shell rim: fav.me/d73l0rb

**Shell details and eyes are needle-felted, though yarn/thread and cut-out felt should work fine!

Here is my squirtle. seon-ha.deviantart.com/art/Sch…

My husband loves it. He even took it to classes. His pupil were thrilled and the little fella helped one girl in math to get a better grade at a test. =^.^=

Thank you. Somehow it looks a little fragile in comparison to yours. That's what I love about your squirtle. It looks so sturdy like the really little ones often do.
hmm. Maybe mine is just a little bit older. XD
When I've finished my current projects Charmander is the next one. I have the perfect wool for it. But I will definitely share that one too. =^.^=

It's a little hard for me to describe how to stitch pieces together.  I hoped pictures would help more than any explanation could ^^;  I think yours looks fine how it is though!  And I can't wait to see your Charmander! :la:
