How to Crochet Pokemon 597: Ferroseed

So I’m playing a little game because I got tired of trying to decide which Pokemon to make next. I found a random Pokemon generator online and decided to let that decide for me. Each week it will pick the new “Pokemon of the Week” and I’ll make it. If the pick already has a pattern, I’ll follow that. If it doesn’t, I’ll make the pattern and post it here and on my Youtube Channel (you should subscribe… seriously… I’m giving away a month’s worth of handmade Pokemon on the channel at the end of March).

 

This week’s Pokemon is Ferroseed. He’s no. 597.

250px-597FerroseedSince I couldn’t find a pattern online, I’ve made one which I will share below.

Skill Needed:

Easy. Knowledge of basic crochet stitches (sc, increase, decrease, crochet in the round)

Time Needed:

It’s a pretty fast project. I would set aside about 2  hours to get it done.

Supplies Needed:

White worsted weight yarn

Dark grey or black worsted weight yarn

Green worsted weight yarn

Size H crochet hook

Stuffing

Scrap felt in yellow, green and black for eyes

Start with body of Ferroseed:

ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook

2 sc in each stitch around (12)

1 sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch around (18)

sc in each stitch around (18)

sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the next stitch around (24)

Sc around (24) – switch to dark grey yarn at the end of the round

In grey: sc around (24). Switch back to white yarn at the end of the round

In White: sc in the next 3 stitches, 2 sc in the next stitch around (30)

Sc around (30)

Sc around (30)

begin stuffing the project at this point.

Fasten off leaving a bit of a tail. Weave tail through last round stitches and pull to tighten. Secure and hide end inside project.

Spikes (thorns):

Use green yarn and H hook.

Loosely ch 2, 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook

2 sc in the first stitch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 stitches (4)

2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next stitch around (6)

sc around (6)

Fasten off leaving a tail for sewing spike onto Ferroseed’s body.

Make 12 spikes in total.

Sew spikes onto Ferroseed. I placed one on his forehead. I placed 8 in a circular pattern around the edges. I placed 3 spikes to cover up the colour changes on Ferroseed’s back.

Cut shapes from felt for eyes. Green is a five sided shape. Yellow is a half circle. Black is a slightly oval slit. Glue or sew into place just under middle grey line.

Attach some grey yarn to a yarn needle and sew a few details (freckles?) onto Ferroseed’s body. You can use the photo for reference.
