Free Pattern: Squirtle Amigurumi


A 4.5" tall little Squirtle. You can download the PDF pattern on Ravelry or you can find it written below. If you have any questions feel free to email me at icrochetthings@gmail.com.

This is one of my oldest patterns and one of my favorites. He's so cute and tiny! I had to do minor reconstruction before I took pictures of him because his face looked kinda weird, which gave me an idea to do a tutorial on how to deconstruct and fix an amigurumi. Hopefully I'll get around to that soon.

Materials:
▪  Worsted weight yarn in light blue, beige, brown, white, black 
▪  F hook (3.75 mm) 
▪  Stuffing 
▪  9 mm safety eyes 
▪  Scissors 
▪  Tapestry needle

Difficulty: Easy
You should know how to work in the round, increase, decrease, work in the front loops, and change colors.
