Hello everyone! This post is coming out a little bit later in the day, but it’s so worth it! This week, I finally finished making, designing, and writing up the pattern for my crochet Articuno. Before I even started, I was struggling to picture how I would make this come together in a way that I was happy with, but in the end, I decided to just start and see how it went.
And it went AWESOME!
I’m so pleased with this guy and I can’t wait to give him to my niece. She requested him so many months ago, and although I made my crocheted Charizard and a Snorlax for her brothers without any problems, Articuno had me stumped. But that girl has been so patient. Finally, she’ll have her Pokèmon too!
Crochet Articuno Pattern
Here’s a little bit about this pattern:
- He’s 18 inches tall and has a wingspan (from the tip of one wing to the other) of 13 inches.
- This crochet Articuno is constructed in parts, which are all seamed together at the end.
- The main stitches used are single crochet and half double crochets, so it’s easy for beginners too.
- There are pipe cleaners in his legs and tail so they are posable.
- He’s a little top heavy, so he won’t stand on his own unless he’s leaning against something
The PDF is 13 pages and includes a ton of info:
- Everything about the sizing and gauge
- A list of materials
- All the skills and techniques that went into this crochet Articuno
- Pattern details and pictures for each body part
- A few diagrams/step by step pictures to help with the more complicated sections
- Close up of assembly and instructions on placement
- And so, so many pictures!
I hope you guys like this and give it try! Or, if you’re more of a Charizard or Snorlax fan, try the patterns for those guys! I’m super pleased with this and I really think this is my favorite pattern yet. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
I’ll see you guys soon 🙂
