Crochet Pattern Cyndaquil - Free amigurumi pattern

Cyndaquil - Free amigurumi pattern

Difficulty Level:   
0 Comments

Hey there! If you are like me, then you grew up playing the Pokémon games and watched the television series. I thought I would share a pattern that I created that brings one of my favorite Pokémon characters to life: Cyndaquil, who is one of the three starter Pokémon that trainers can choose from in Pokémon Gold and Silver (two of my personal favorites in the series).

This character pattern is fun to make and it is a great way to practice your crochet techniques. I have added some options when adding the fire. It is time to crochet 'em all!

This pattern I think turned out extremely well, if you do use this pattern please @CrochetCacheCA on social media. I would love to see the results!

Spots on Back


For spots on the back you have two options:
  • Red Felt
  • or
  • Red Velcro

Cut the felt or velcro (soft velcro side, not the hooks side) into the shapes below. You can sew them if you would like. I hot glued mine to the back. The velcro is for if your making the fire removable. If you are making cyndaquil with out fire then use the felt. If you are making the fire not removable you do not need the velcro or the felt.

Fire


**Make Four**

Whether you make the fire removable or not use the following instructions to make the fire for his back.
  Red - Chain 6, skip look closest to the hook, 4Sc, 3Sc in same loop, 4Sc, 3Sc in same loop (14)
Rnd 1 (4Sc, 3Inc) x 2 (20)
- Sl St leave long tail if direct attaching to back. Else if removable fire, secure and cut short.
 
Strings Needed
Red - Cut 10 inch strings x 20
Orange - Cut 8 inch strings x 30
Yellow - Cut 6 inch strings x 40
 
Attaching Strings
Red - Group four strings together and fold in half. Feed the loop through the center of the crochet oval and back through. Feed the ends of the strings through the loops and pull taut, trying to keep the ends the same length. Do this 5 times in the center row of the oval.
Orange - Group two strings together and fold in half. Feed the loop through next to the red in the crochet oval and back through. Feed the ends of the strings through the loops and pull taut, trying to keep the ends the same length. Do this 15 times in the center row of the oval.
Yellow - Group two strings together and fold in half. Feed the loop through next to the orange in the crochet oval and back through. Feed the ends of the strings through the loops and pull taut, trying to keep the ends the same length. Do this 20 times in the center row of the oval.

Using a wire pet brush, brush out the tied strings to get a more realistic looking fire. You will have chunks of the string come off that is ok.

Assembly


  • NOTE: do this before you make the teal head stripe, so you can use the distance from the back of the head to the top of the nose to measure. Attach the head to the body.
  • - Attach the nose pointing down.
  • - Attach the teal stripes.
  • - Attach the legs next the body teal stripe for the back of, with a slight tilt to the legs and body.
  • - Attach the toes to the legs
  • - Attach arms at the side of Cyndaquil.
  • This part is different depending on your choice for the fire or no fire:
    • If you choose no fire. Sew or hot glue the red spots on his back on the teal.
    • If you choose the fire but perminant, then with the long red tail left attach the fire to his back
    • If you choose removable fire. Hot glue and/or sew the soft side of the velcro to his back. hot glue the hook side to the fire.
  • - Stitch on the eyes half circles
  • - Stitch on nostrils.
