Giant Charmander Crochet Pattern

Hello, everyone! 

I've slowly been going through my most popular patterns to update them and correct any mistakes. If you find an issue in any of my patterns, feel free to leave a comment and I'll correct it when I have time! 

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!

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!
