Measurements

Charmander will be about 10 cm (4 inches) heigh. The size can be changed a bit by using a smaller or thicker thread and corresponding hook.

  • Approximately 10g (or 20 meter) white/cream colored yarn, worsted weight.

  • A little bit of black yarn to sew on the nostrils.
  • 2x 8mm safety eyes.
  • I use a steel crochet hook size 4mm (size D, 3 ¼ mm regular US hook).
  • Stuffing, like 100% polyester fiberfill.
  • Wool/Tapestry needle.
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers

Notes

  1. Make sure you read through the whole pattern before starting, to make sure you understand everything. Please feel comfortable to contact me for any questions!
  1. Charmander is made in rounds and in several different parts that will be sown together afterwards. Do not join rounds unless told to.
  1. Use a stitch marker to mark the start of a round (or a small piece of different colored yarn placed under the stich at the mark of the round).
  1. To start a round you can use the magic ring method for a tight look.
