Skill Level

 This pattern expects that the reader has a basic understanding of crocheting

amigurumi.

Measurements

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

Materials

  • Approximately 50g (or 100 meter) blue yarn, worsted weight.
  • Approximately 25g (or 50 meter) black yarn, worsted weight.
  • Approximately 12g (or 25 meter) red yarn, worsted weight.
  • Glue for attaching the eyes to the head
  • Little scraps of white felt for the eyes and a black marker
  • 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

Abbreviations

-­‐ ch = chain

-­‐ sl st = slip stich

-­‐ sc = single crochet (US), double crochet (UK)

-­‐ hdc = half double crochet (US), half treble crochet (UK)

-­‐ dc = double crochet (US), treble crochet (UK)

— tc= triple crochet (US)

-­‐ rnd = round

-­‐ tog = together

-­‐ dec = decrease by crocheting 2 single crochet together

-­‐ 2sc in sc = 2 single crochet in 1 single crochet

-­‐ bl = back loop only

-­‐ fl = front loop only

-­‐ MR = start with a magic ring

-­‐ fo = fasten off

The number after the abbreviation means how many times the stitch should be done. For instance, Sc 4 = sc, sc, sc, sc. The lack of the number behind the sc means that the stitch should be done once.

If it the pattern says ‘around’ at the end of the round instructions, it means to repeat the previous instructions until you reach your stitch marker and finish the round. For instance, 2 sc in each sc around = 2 sc in each sc repeated 6 times, until you get 12 sc.

  2. Tangela is made in rounds and in several different parts that will be sown

#068 Machamp

Hi Guys!

This week i have Machamp to share with you! I really like how he turned out! Halfway through i ran out of blue/grey yarn, so i had to order some new online, which took much longer to arrive than i anticipated. I made the fingers using the same technique as i used for Hypno (you can find a link to a tutorial there).

#108 Lickitung

Hi there!

I hope you had a nice week! Let’s start this week with the first of my new ‘batch’ of pokémon. I divided the remaining pokémon in different batches so I don’t have all the difficult ones left in the end (i know myself).

At first I had no idea how to start with lickitung! I was a bit struggling with the open mouth, but in the end I think I did a good job. What do you think about him? IMG_1131
