Pikachu - Free amigurumi pattern

Difficulty Level:

Pokémon is one of the biggest video game franchises in history, and it has created a wide array of memorable characters over the years that people really love to collect. One of Pokémon’s most popular is Pikachu! This adorable little electric mouse is popular among all ages and genders.

I even had a soft spot for him because of the shows. When I got a chance to play and have a Pikachu I never would evolve him.

In this post, I will show you how to make your own Pikachu amigurumi. This pattern is not only easy to follow but also beginner-friendly!

If you do use this pattern, please @CrochetCacheCA on social media. I would love to see the results!
