Giant Bulbasaur Crochet Pattern

 Well hello there.  I know I promised scheduled patterns when I published my Charmander pattern.... but it turns out I have once again underestimated my ability for procrastination.  

On the bright side I've cast on two blankets, a sweater, and started designing yet another knit top.  

On the not so bright side, I'm behind on publishing my Kanto set.  So it's time to get on that.  

Here's Bulbasaur.  Hopefully Squirtle isn't too long off (I know better than to make promises now.)


Enjoy making it!  If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments!

Lastly, add your felt details!  I've provided some pictures below for felt placement as well as limb placement when sewing stuff on.

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES

 I just realized something rather big - I had a dead email connected to my "contact me" form.  

If you've tried to send me a message through there, please re-send it!  I've corrected it now so I'll get your message and be able to respond to you.  

Excited to publish the next free pattern soon - it's going to be Squirtle!

Giant Charmander Crochet Pattern



Hello, all!

It's (once again) been a while since I've posted a pattern. But I have THREE lined up, which I'll be posting over the next three weeks.

With the pandemic still keeping me home, I have a bit more time on my hands. In between working on a few paid patterns, I really wanted to publish a few free ones for those of you who are also stuck inside.

The first patterns I shared on this blog were tiny versions of the original Kanto starters. My next three will be GIANT versions of them.

First up: Charmander.




Each of these next three patterns are made using Bernat Blanket yarn. I suggest that you use the recommended yarns, as I haven't tested with any other materials or weights.

If you do try out a different yarn, be sure to let me know how it went in the comments!

SC 6, INC 2, SC 5, DEC (15)

SC 6, INC 2, SC 6, DEC (16)

Now to shape the tail, I did SC on the bottom (no increases or decreases), and slip stitched on the top. The top of the tail will be with that line of increases you made pointing up.

Should you not want to bother with this, you can just put some modeling wire in the tail to shape it.

I did 5 more rows after the increases and decreases.

Stuff Tail




Putting it all Together

At this point I made the flame for the tail. I took acrylic yarn in orange, yellow, and red, and unraveled it giving it a looser, softer look, I tied a large knot in it, and put it through the magic loop in the tip of the tail. If the loop was still too loose I tightened it at this point.


I then sewed the tail on, and cut the beige felt to size to cover the tummy and underside of the tail. Then I just glued it on. 

  








Next sew your arms and legs on, weaving in all ends as you go (including the tail end.



For the eyes I examined many pictures of Charmander until I found my favourite design, and cut the pieces of felt out. Set them up before you glue them together to make sure they're perfect.





Glue the eyes together, and stick them on your Charmander.




And you're done!
