Bulbasaur Crochet Pattern :D

I had planned on waiting a couple of weeks before posting the next pattern in this series, but when it came time to work on my thesis paper naturally I decided that this was more important.

I'll be posting Squirtle next (in a week or two... depending on how much I'm focusing on coursework.) and possibly Pikachu after that, if I can write the pattern out in a way that makes sense.  After that, I'm open to suggestions!

Anyways, without further ado, here's my Bulbasaur pattern:

These patterns take time to design and write out. If you enjoyed using my pattern, please consider supporting me by paying what you can for the pattern by using the "buy me a coffee" button to the right.

Arms and Legs
Row 1: CH 2, SC 10 in first stitch. (10 stitches)

Stuff legs lightly, and sew them onto body. (see pictures at the start of pattern for placement.)

Next comes the markings! This part is super simple, just cut out a bunch of triangles /other angled shapes of varying sizes and using the fabric glue/your hot glue gun, fasten them to your Bulbasaur.
And you’re done!
