Sorry Ash, but we know who the real star here is. This week was super busy with University projects and orders, so I’m couple of days late with this week’s pattern, sorry! But it’s finally time for Pikachu to make an appearance! The tail was a bit tricky to work out, so I’ve included a lot of photos and a (hopefully!) thorough description to help you out. If you don’t crochet you can find this guy at either my Etsy or Storenvy. Enjoy!

There’s also a link there to a photo-tutorial of all the stitches and techniques I use. :) HEAD 1. (in Yellow) MR 6 (6) 2. [ inc ]x 6 (12) 3.

So the first row is simple enough, make a chain of 7. Then on the second row, turn your work, and starting in the second chain from the hook sc 6 down one side, and keep going to sc 6 up the other side as well. Then continue with rounds 3 and 4 normally (1. below). Round 5 can be a bit tricky again. This is how we’re going to create the first zig-zag. We want to go halfway and then turn the work a skip to the other side. So first sc 3 normally (2. below), then we’re going to pretend the next 6 stitches aren’t there. I find it easier to turn my work (3. below), count six stitches, and then insert my hook into the 7th stitch (4. below), continuing as normal for the rest of the round. At the end of round 6 we’re going to chain 4 (2. below). This will become the other side of the zig zag. Chain 4, then insert your hook back into the first stitch of round six (3. below), like you would if there were no chain and you were simply starting round 7. Then you’ll skip stitches like you did above. When you get to where the chain 4 is you’re going to have to crochet in the front or back loop only, since there isn’t a proper sc to insert into. After that you’ll change colour, and thankfully be done. I like to take a length of yellow yarn and whipstitch the open parts (where you skipped stitches and chained) closed to give the tail a neater shape. Hopefully that explanation wasn’t too confusing! Press the tail flat and that’s the end of all the crocheting! Stuff the head, body, and legs. The legs don’t require much stuffing. Everything is ready for assembly. I like to pin all the pieces together to make sure they’re positioned properly when before I attach them. I usually find them easiest to attach in this order: legs, tail (stitch on back detail), arms, head, ears. I like to attach the head first because it makes it easier to ensure the ears are even. After you’ve attached the tail, but before you attach the head, make sure you remember to embroider on the two stripes Pikachu has at the back. I usually use the same yarn I’m using to attach the tail to the body. The last thing left to do is the cheeks! Take a piece of red felt, and cut out two small circles. Then simply glue them in place underneath the eyes. Done! I think Pikachu is my favourite Pokemon amigurumi so far, his little cheeks are so adorable and his ears make him much more photogenic than the others. If you end up making this doll, I’d love to see it! I follow the #53stitches tag on Instagram and tumblr. Next week will be PuppyCat, from the Cartoon Hangover series Bee and PuppyCat (which I highly recommend, it’s only 10 minutes but it’s so funny and adorable).
