My son had already told me that he wanted to help me gather together a Pokémon themed crochet post. Since the launch of Pokémon Go yesterday, I figured now was as good a time as any. Since the servers apparently still have some bugs that need to be worked out, we figured we would bring you some patterns to help fill the void of those un-playable hours. Let’s try to catch them all!
1. Ami Amour : Pokeball and Pikachu (Pika Pika!)
Logically we have to start with a functional pokeball pattern. You can’t catch more Pokémon without a working pokeball. With a stroke of luck, we already have Pikachu!
2. 53 Stitches has free patterns for more than just a few Pokémon characters
Here are some of the more classic and well known characters from the very beginnings of Pokémon. I already know I’d like to try out that Squirtle. Please head over and check out her fantastic patterns.
3. Becca de Kroon: Charmander!
Who doesn’t like this fiery little creature? He has always been one of my favorites.
4. Mia Hand Crafter : Charizard!
What is Charmander without his fully evolved form of Charizard? Mia’s instructions are very detailed, include pictures, and even videos to help you evolve your very own Charizard. L has told me that he now wants this for Christmas instead of the Legend of Zelda crochet pattern he picked out.
5. Mia Hand Crafter has wowed me twice in a row with the Snorlax
You may even be able to catch some snores of your own on Snorlax because he is pillow sized!
6. Wolf Dreamer Off The Hook : Lugia
The pattern creator warns us, ” This doll ain’t for the faint of heart.” Perhaps this pattern will take a little bit longer than between crashes, but it’s awesome nonetheless. She also has several other free patterns on her site. Please go check her site out!
7. Oui Crochet :Halloween costume
This pattern is for the hat and tail of the costume she made for her daughter.
8. Craftsy User Knit Grit : Pokeball Beanie
9. i crochet things 3DS and 2DS sleeves
The link above it to the 3DS pattern which will then lead you to the 2Ds pattern. Just because you’re playing on your android and iPhone mobile devices doesn’t mean these handhelds need to be pitched to the wayside.
10. Creative Compendium : Deck Bag
Another Pokémon pastime that should not be forgotten is the massive amount of Pokémon trading cards. Never turn your back on your roots and never leave a teammate in trouble.
It looks like I have some work cut out for me now. I still have plenty of leftover white and red yarn from my 4th of July projects. It’s about that time for me to GO! I hope you enjoyed this round-up of free crochet patterns. The above images are not my own. They belong to the very creative crafters that have so graciously gifted us with their free patterns. I love geeky crochet, don’t you? Until everything with the new game becomes more stable, we should all have plenty of time to get in a few rows. Have a great day!
For those who are really serious about being on the GO!
