Gorgeous Granny Square Sweater Crochet Patterns to Start the New Year

Granny squares are a great place to start when learning to crochet, but often times new crocheters dont’ know what to do with them once they’re made. I’m going to be honest about those first few: you’re probably not going to be able to do anything with them. You’re learning! It’s normal! Maybe if you caught on quickly, you’ll have some coasters. But take that knowledge and come along to see what you can do with the skills you’ve acquired and find some great patterns to turn your new hobby into garment making!

This Sunflower Crochet Cardigan pattern from Kristines Day Crafts is so cheerful and sunny! I love sunflowers and this stunning cropped cardigan pattern is easy to follow and requires beginner level crochet skills. You could easily lengthen or shorten this cardigan by adding another row of granny squares to the bottom to make it suit your preferences!

This long hooded granny square jacket crochet pattern is a vintage pattern that has been tested and tweaked by skilled crocheter The Sweetest Crochet PT. It is written for size S-M, but is adjustable and the seller offers support for adjusting the size. So I wouldn’t necessarily say this is a beginner crochet pattern, but if you have some experience constructing a crochet pattern, it is likely fairly easy to adjust to your preferred size.

This Crochet Granny Hexagon Cardigan Pattern from Amy T Design isn’t exactly a granny square pattern, but it fits the theme. These Hexagon sweaters are so cool the way they turn a couple of large hexagons into the sleeves and body of a cardigan! You’ll be so amazed at how it comes together. It’s oversized and slouchy, super cozy and quick to make! The beauty of this is that you won’t have to seam together a bunch of tiny granny squares at the end to finish it.

Stephanie is one of my favourite designers for easy to follow crochet patterns and her Cozy Days Daisy Cardigan Crochet Pattern is no different. It is made with a bulky level 5 yarn, so the granny squares works up quickly and you’ll be seaming up this sweater in no time! The yarn she suggests is Lion Brand Yarn’s Hue & Me, which you can also get as a kit (pattern included!) from Lion Brand. This pattern has inclusive sizing, with sizing from XS to 5XL.

This fun Crocheted Daisy Cropped Cardigan Pattern from TS Crochet Design is a fun and colourful granny square jacket with oversized sleeves and a cropped bodice that would make a stunning statement piece. So fun for festivals or weekend wear. You could choose to make it in just a few colours or use it as a stash busting project to use up those leftovers!

This Crochet Granny Square Hooded Cardigan Pattern from By Masal is such a gorgeous long boho-inspired sweater and would be such a stunning statement piece! I love how the different colour arrangements of each square make it so unique and have such a lovely 70’s vibe!

Speaking of a 70’s vibe, check out this stunning Ada Top Crochet Pattern from Cucurucu Crochet! I love this pattern so much! It is size inclusive from XS to 5XL and the length can be customized to your preference. Such a lovely little top! Would make a great top on its own or a vest over a long sleeved shirt.

The Isla Granny Square Sweater Crochet Pattern from Lakeside Loops is a classy take on a crochet classic! This pattern is also size inclusive, with instructions for sizes S-5XL. The 2-4″ of positive ease on this sweater allows for a comfy fit, and depending on the yarn you choose to make it in, it can be suitable for spring/summer or the cooler months.

This Daisy Square Granny Tee Crochet Pattern from Cansharkseattoffee has just one round of granny squares at the yoke of the sweater. It has sizing from 32-34 inches to 44-46 inches and is an easy pattern with flattering sleeves. Once you seam together the granny squares, the rest of the sweater will work up pretty quickly.

I hope you found some inspiration for your next steps in crochet! Crocheting is so fun; your granny squares can turn into more than blankets and scarves! Grab a pattern, some yarn, and a hook and get crocheting today! Or Pin it for later!

Knit and Crochet Gorgeous Handmade Gifts for Baby

My nephew’s fiance is having a baby! I’m so excited! I’m going to be a great auntie! So fun! AND that means that I can make cute things for the baby! Baby is due around Christmas and we don’t know the gender, so it’s a gender-neutral baby pattern round up! If you have a baby you’re knitting or crocheting for, I have a lovely collection of ideas for you!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Let’s start with garments! This stunning Baby Wool Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Little French Knits is an adorable French-inspired striped cardigan with a raglan button opening. I love this one; I think it reads a little bit girly, so I’m a little hesitant to go with this one for my nephew’s baby, but this pattern comes with 3 sizes: 0-3 months, 6-9 months, and 12-18 months, so I could totally make the 12-18 months size for next Christmas!

How adorable is this Back to School Kids Jacket Knitting Pattern from Agasalhos e Bugalhos? You could duplicate stitch a letter on the chest; how sweet would that be? This pattern is available in 11 sizes from 0 months up to 14 years! Incredible! You could make this for any kid or a collection of matching jackets for a family of kids! If this letterman’s jacket isn’t your style, Agasalhos e Bugalhos has soooooo many other adorable baby patterns, it’s worth taking a look in the shop to find a classic baby knitting pattern that you’ll love!

The Joyous Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern is another one of those stunning baby knitting patterns from Agasalhos e Bugalhos. This pattern is worked top-down in garter stitch, which makes a nice thick fabric while also being easy and quick to knit. This pattern comes with instructions to knit 8 sizes from newborn to 24 months.

This Hooded Baby Jacket from Easy Knitting Camp is another garter-stitch jacket, but this one with a warm and cozy hood and double-breasted buttons. This pattern includes 6 sizes, from 0 months to 6 years and is knit in once piece from the top down, using raglan construction to shape th yoke, so it requires no sewing! I love seamless patterns; they’re my favourite!

The Beginning Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Knits Du Nord is a classic, top-down, seamless knitting pattern including instructions to make 7 different sizes from 0 months to 8 years. Simple and classic, you can’t go wrong with this adorable knitting pattern.

Not to forget the crocheters in the room, this Crochet Sasha Sweater is a great crochet baby sweater option from Bananna Patterns includes 4 sizes, from 0-6 months to 3-4 years. I love the additional texture on the body, which adds to its specialness. This would make a delightful gift for baby!

The Mika Crocheted Cardigan Pattern from Petit Chou Chou Shop is a top-down, seamless crochet cardigan pattern for baby. Instructions are given for 7 sizes from 0 months to 6 years. I love how classic and simple this lovely little jacket is! Perfect for baby boys or baby girls!

I’m always torn between wanting to dress babies like little grown ups or like dolls with fun things like bear ears. I think there’s room for both! This Baby Bear Hoodie Crochet Pattern from Adele Uyan Crochet is just the ticket for a not-too-costumey hooded sweater with a touch of whimsy with little bear ears. You could skip them I guess, if you didn’t want the bear look, but I think they’re so adorable.

Not your traditional baby booties, this Crochet Baby Sneakers Pattern from Crochet Club Store Co are such a fun little baby shoe for your little one! This pattern makes a pair of slippers in a 3-6 month size, so keep that in mind. What a fun little pattern!

The Rainbow of Stars Baby Blanket from Three Loops on the Hook is a fun crocheted blanket pattern that would be a fun option for baby! It would be sure to be a treasured blanket! I can totally see this blanket being the kind of blanket that would become a loved comfort item for a child, that they would take with them into adulthood, worn and loved.

Another fun option is a sweet stuffed animal! I love this adroable Baby Bunny Knitting Pattern from Elves World. This sweet little stuff bunny pattern also includes instructions for those adorable dungarees (overalls) as well as a cute beret not show in this photo. This would be such an adorable stuffed toy for baby!

I just love the unexpectedness of this fun Amigurumi Knit Good Pattern from Amy Gaines. Honestly, I was drawn to this pattern because it reminds me of my middle son (16), but it’s such a delightful little stuffed animal pattern, a little unexpected, but definitely delightful!

There’s just something about bunnies that just say “baby” and this little Cotton, My Little Rabbit Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Pensebonheur definitely says that! “Big ears, a round belly, a pretty romper and a look of full tenderness” is how this adorable doll is described. The pattern comes in 4 languages with 9 pages of instructions and photos to make this little rabbit toy.

I couldn’t just scroll past this sweet little Baby Cake Bunny Crochet Pattern from Ninas Time 4U; it was just too cute! Patterns for all the accessories you see here are also included: the beanies, dungarees and swaddle bags, as well as the adorable little bunny! This pattern is available in English and German and it would make the sweetest baby shower gift!

So if you are not someone who enjoys knitting in the round, this is definitely the stuffed toy knitting pattern for you!

sheep in the countryside cushion knitting pattern

One of the things I really love about knitting is the ease with which designers can create a picture with colourwork knitting patterns. This Knitting Pattern for Sheep in the Countryside Cushion from i Knit Designs is a sweet little knit pillow pattern that would be delightful in a nursery or to bring a touch of whimsy to your living space or bedroom. Who says all the fun and cute things have to be left to the kids’ bedrooms?

I cannot get over the cuteness of this Little Lamb Knitting Pattern from Cute Knit Toy. It looks so cute and cuddly. Cute Knit Toy has a bunch of other adorable knit toy patterns as well. A lot of knitted toy patterns have such obvious decreases and increases that I usually think they don’t look as good as crocheted toys, but these ones are so good!

image of a drawstring handbag made to look like an orange

I love the simplicity of this Crochet Orange Bag Pattern from Lilys Handmade Store! It looks like the leaf acts as an anchor for the drawstring, which is a genius idea. And it’s basically just a little sack, perfect for your cell phone, wallet, and keys when you don’t have pockets.

image of a crocheted duck handbag

Ok, though, but this Crochet Duck Bag Pattern from Bebblepuff? How can you not? The design for this adorable and unique crochet duck purse include instructions for two pockets and a cotton lining. It calls for size 6 (bulky) yarn and an 8 mm crochet hook, which means it will work up quickly and make a nice sturdy handbag.

flower shaped crocheted handbag

Ok, when I first saw the Blossom Bag crochet pattern from Bookworm Gardens I thought it was a fried egg purse. I suppose if you made the petals more irregularly shaped, you could make this bag look more like a fried egg, but it is still a really fun flower purse! There are lots of sample photos (tester photos!) in the listing, so you can see what it looks like in different colours to help you choose.

crocheted lemon granny square tote bag

If you have been around here a while, you will know it’s no secret that I love lemons! I love the look of them (yellow is my favourite colour!) and I love the flavour of them! I love a lemon wedge squeezed in my ice water. And I love this Citrusly?? Granny Square Tote Bag crochet pattern from Cozy Dome Crafts. This citrus granny squre tote bag is great for beginners and can be modified with differnt colours to create a variety of different citrus fruits. Limes? Oranges? Grapefruit? So many options!

white crocheted tote bag with a black cat pattern

How great is this Black Cat Tote Bag Crochet pattern from Patterns Crochet Store? I can just see this bag adding a touch of whimsy to a little black dress and would make such a fun gift for a cat lover! That’s one of the great things about bags: they make great gifts because you don’t have to worry about fit!

crocheted crossbody mushroom bag

Ok, maybe you saw my last post about mushrooms, but I didn’t include this Crossbody Toadstool Bag Crochet Pattern from HELLO Happy. This super whimsical mushroom bag has a zipper closure and is made with a small hook so it can remain unlined and you won’t lose your little things through the crochet fabric.

crossbody crocheted frog bag

This Crossbody Froggy Bag Crochet Pattern also from HELLO Happy has a similar fit as the mushroom bag and calls for a 9 inch zipper. It would make a nice alternative to the mushroom bag, but still with a whimsical woodland theme.

crocheted drawstring bag that looks like a strawberry

The Chaotic Strawberry has this Amigurumi Strawberry Drawstring Bag Crochet Pattern available for purchase and immediate download. This pattern is probably best for an advanced beginner or intermediate crocheter. The design of this purse allows you to open the drawstring without having to adjust the strap since the strap is separate from the drawstring opening. I love the bundle of leaves on the top of the strawberry closure: makes for a very authentic looking strawberry!

crocheted handbad that looks like an acorn with a cute face

The Kawaii Acorn Bag Crochet Pattern from Sweet Home Deco Estudio is another woodland-inspired bag pattern that would make the perfect whimsical gift for anyone! I love the sweet little oak leaves adorning the top of the bag. The beauty of making your own bag like this is that you can make it any length you want!

crocheted shopping bag that folds into a flower

The Spring Folding Shopping Bags Crochet Pattern from one and two company is an adorable and functional shopping bag pattern. I don’t know about your city, but my city has recently imposed a ban on plastic bags, so it is all the more important that we bring our own reusable shopping bags with us. And what better way to do so than with an adorable crocheted bag that folds into an adorable little accessory? With this one pattern you can make a cute bunny, funny chicken, or a colourful flower!

collapsable fruit bag crochet pattern

For a slightly smaller bag, you could make the Collapsable Fruit Bag Crochet Pattern from McScottys. This pattern features five different versions including options to make citrus fruit (lemon, lime or orange), dragonfruit, and watermelon. Handy for stashing in your purse to corral additional purchased for a little bit extra storage.

I love the functional whimsy of this Mushroom Jar with Removable Lid Knitting Pattern from mymarketstall. When I first saw the description of this mushroom jar, I thought that maybe it was designed to cover a real jar. I think it still could do that (hot glue the mushroom cap to the lid?!) and then you could have a super cute candy jar. I have a whole collection (hoard?) of jars that just feel a shame to do nothing with, so maybe I could make a whole bunch of mushroom jars?!

This beautiful collection Knit Amigurumi Mushroom Christmas Ornaments from Amy Gaines is a great set to get you started making delightful little mushrooms. They would make super cute Christmas ornaments for a tree, of course, but also could be put on a key chain to be used year round!

The Fairy Ring Socks also by katiegreen is such a cute sock pattern for the more subtle option of the three patterns. It’s a little easier to hide whimsical socks under a pair of shoes, but still feel delightful knowing your secret fun socks are keeping your toes warm!

I loooooove the Fairy Ring Cardigan Knitting Pattern designed by katiegreen. This pattern looks steeked (the process of cutting your knitting), so it can be knit in the round and then made into a cardigan at the finish. I have still been too shy to get the steeked sweater pattern that I have made, so I have yet to try this process. It seems straightforward, though still slightlly terrifying.

I can’t get over the cuteness on the Toadstools Embroidered Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Love Fibres! I love the adorable embroidered mushrooms! I think this would be such a delightful gift for a new baby!

The Mushrooms Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Ana Swet is another mushroom-themed cardigan, but the mushroom design is worked using the duplicate stitch instead of regular embroidery. Looks like a great pattern to learn the duplicate stitch!

Crochet Patterns to Make Your Own Custom Mantel Decor

I have a confession to make: I’m not particularly skilled at decor. I value utility. Don’t get me wrong, I love pretty things, I appreciate a beautiful space and styled things, but ultimately, I live here and we’ve got a lot of stuff that needs homes. I have a hard time devoting a lot of shelf space to knick knacks. But I have 2 mantels in my house now and both of them are only half styled. So, I’m going to take it slow and start thinking through more of what we put on those mantels. Today, I’m thinking about the mantel in the family room, which sits about 12 inches below the television and is only about 5 inches deep. I know there are guidelines about height and depth and I feel like it’s pretty hard to obey those rules when I don’t have much room for either. Nearly everything I currently have on there is about the same height, so I think I need some shorter things. This is what is looks like now (and yes, soccer is often playing at our house, even if no one is there watching it):

So, I like all these little quirky elements that are here, but they don’t seem properly styled or connected. So, I think it might need some things and it might need some things taken away. I’m going to start experimenting. And making. I’m thinking about some of the following patterns as options for things I can add to the mantel to add some texture and cohesiveness. (Though, I might just have to invite my sister over for a styling session). Anyway, maybe you’re looking for some handmade decor styling items (aka knick knacks), check out these patterns and tell me which one(s) you’re thinking of making (or which ones I should add to my mantel).

Ok, this is where I’m leaning right now. Strings of wooden beads have been pretty popular in home decor for the last little while. Probably they’re on their way out, but it’s not like I’ve ever been on the cutting edge of home decor anyway, so it will be new to me! Also, these wouldn’t be wooden beads, they would be strings of crocheted beads! It’s a spin, which makes it relevant again. Regardless of whether you’re looking to make little crocheted balls for home decor or for a baby toy, this Bead Crochet Pattern in 5 Sizes from My Dear Knot is a great pattern to work with!

This is another great contender! I love this Crochet Light Ball crochet pattern from Made by Catarina idea, with the lacy crochet ball filled with little mini lights. Such a fun idea! What do you think?

Ok, I already have a fake plant on the mantel and a real plant (in that super cute cat planter), but I have once before had a real string of pearls plant that I killed, so I’m not sure if I can keep one alive, especially not in this spot. This room sees a fair bit traffic and no one is super careful in my house. I would be super bummed if I managed to keep a string of pearls plant alive and then one of my family members knocked it to the floor. But… a crocheted plant made from this super cute Pointy Leaf Vine Crochet Pattern from Keeleys Crochet might be just the ticket!

Ooooh or I could crochet around a jar with this Crocheted Jar Cover Pattern from ellina and make that into a candle holder or put a little string of battery operated lights in there. I do have a strange hoarding tendency towards jars, so if I could put some to use like this, that would be wonderful! To be clear, I use a lot of them for other useful purposes as well, but I do have a hard time throwing out a good jar! Perhaps I will make a goal of giving gifts in jars for Christmas this year!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

Ok, again, I know I already have plants on there, but what if what it needs–stay with me here–is MORE plants?! I know right? I think it could be what’s missing. Especially if it meant having one of these super fun Air Plant Crocheted Planters made with the pattern by Cosmonaut Llama! Right? That is so fun. I think I need to make one of these.

Ok, look at this. We’re getting closer here… jars, crochet, plants… all in one pattern! This Crochet Mason Jar Sweater Sleeve Candle Plant Cozy Pattern from Deni Made Designs is just the thing. Ticks all the boxes. More plants… more jars. This is a great option.

I also quite like this Farmhouse Candle Cozy Crochet Pattern from Through the Loop YC. It could probably still be used to cover some jars, but I must say it looks pretty sweet on this collection of 3 matching candles.

I just love amigurumi; I’m not sure the family room is where I want to put an anthropomorphic stuffed plant, but it does check the plant box! And it’s little! You can’t find a real Sansevieria plant this small! This delightful Snake Plant Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Knot Monster sits only 16 cm tall when finished, so it could be just right for my mantel!

Ok, so while not strictly something I would make for the top of my mantel, this Crochet Daisy Garland with Leaves Pattern from Krafty Home Studio could be hung from the bottom of my mantel. It doesn’t really solve my mantel decoration “problem” but I stumbled upon it in my search and I just loved it, so I wanted to share it with all of your

Alright, looking at the dimensions of the Crochet Tray Basket Pattern from The Cozy Knot Crochet displayed here, I’m not sure this exact item would fit on my mantel, but hear me out… perhaps I could make it in a size that would fit on my mantel? What do you think? I’m pretty sure I could figure out resizing it. Also, I didn’t even realize it at first but this pattern also comes with a matching vase cozy! Sweet!

Alright, I know that these vintage patterns are distinctly Christmassy and well, kind of old-lady-ish, but maybe one of the little houses could work? It’s a vintage crochet pattern from Past Pattern Palooza Co and it’s prety inexpensive, so perhaps I could experiment, maybe in a not-white crochet cotton? And get something that could work on my mantel? What do you think?

Ok, back to the balls. See? Like this? In different sizes, or perhaps a string of the same sizes. These Large Size Crochet Balls (there are other sizes, too) from Dalecrest Designs are actually a finished item made of cotton macrame cord and styrofoam balls. I have made similar ones as baubles for my Christmas tree using Bernat Home Decor Yarn. If you don’t crochet or you don’t have the time or materials to make them yourself, these are a great option!

Well, I’m looking forward to some of your feedback about what I should make to put on my mantel. And maybe once I’ve made some shorter little trinkets, perhaps my sister will still come over and help me make it pretty. Grab one of these patterns or pin it for later!

There are many great resources out there to learn on your own (try searching on YouTube for some great visual tutorials!). So, if you have started to learn to crochet, you will want to start with some easy crochet projects for beginners. I have created a wonderful collection of easy beginner crochet projects for you to try out.

Dishcloths are a great place to start. Dishcloths are small projects that allow you to work on gauge and learning one stitch until you perfect it. The Savon Set of beautiful set of crochet dishcloth/washcloth patterns from DeBrosse NYC is a great place to start. The washcloths work up to be about 10″ x 10″ and you can make a set from a single cake of Lion Brand Comfy Cotton.

You can make a dishcloth in whatever colour you like. So whether you like creamy naturals like DeBrosse is known for or your prefer something with more colour, the beauty of handmade is that you can make your dishcloths in whatever colour you prefer. There are so many washcloth tutorials out there, like this Easist Crochet Baby Washcloth from Daisy Cottage Designs.

Once you’ve got the hang of basic crochet projects, you will be ready for larger projects. Blankets are basically just like large washcloths, but the beauty of this Easy Peasy DC Throw Crochet Pattern from Whistle and Wool is that it is made with a single (large) skein of Lion Brand Cover Story Chenille yarn. This bulky yarn works up quickly, so this blanket is done pretty quickly!

Patchwork blankets are super trendy right now. So, if you like the look of a patchwork blanket, this Easy Scrap Buster Blanket Crochet Pattern from Knitting With Chopsticks is a great beginner project! It’s like making a bunch of washcloths and sewing them together to make a sweet and trendy modern crochet throw blanket! It’s a wonderful way to use up scrap yarn and it’s a great project to bring with you, since you can work on it in small pieces!

Your first amigurumi project could be this Squiggles Octopus Crochet Pattern from Ohana Craft Amigurumi. Making stuffed animals with super bulky velour or chenille yarn means that the stitches are easy to see and the stuffed toy works up really quickly!

Then you can make hats!!! How fun is that?

Next you can move on to the Azali Crochet Wrap Pattern from The Easy Design. The design for this wrap is all about easy to make and trendy to wear, using a simple shape and easy texture. You can make it with either a bulky yarn or a medium yarn to make it for the season of your choice. The bulky version will work up quickly and be so cozy for the cold winter months, while a medium weight wrap will be perfectly stylish for the warmer season.

Once you’re feeling pretty confident in the consistency of your stitches and your ability to meet gauge (that means: make your stitches the same size as the designer), you can move on to a more fitted (but still forgiving) crochet pattern, like the Nala Crochet Cardigan Pattern from The Easy Design. You can make it in one of 7 sizes, XS – 3 XL. The basic stitch pattern and the very easy construction of this cardigan make it perfect for beginners who want to make their first wearable garment.

I hope you found some inspiration to get you started with crocheting and learning to make written patterns. There’s no end to the wonderful projects that are available, once you have the hang of the basics. And as you can see there are many lovely projects you can make while learning!

Crochet Them All: Pokemon! Stuffies to Make

Ok, so for me, this is panic time. It always seems like there’s plenty of time before Christmas until suddenly there’s not and I have no good ideas and the ideas I have had suddenly seem silly and I planned to make a bunch of things for people that I just haven’t done yet. Here’s where the last minute gifts come in. Some of my favourite last minute gifts for kids and adults alike are amigurumi. (Make it extra small and put it on a keychain!) And kids are still into Pokemon (I guess: my kids seem to go in and out of Pokemon). So here’s a collection of some quick (and a couple not-so-quick) Pokemon amigurumi if you’re looking for a delightful handmade gift idea for someone who loves Pokemon.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

You can crochet your own Bulbasaur with this intermediate crochet pattern from Shea Crochet. 14 pages of step-by-step instructions to make your own Bulbasaur, with numerous photos to help you with sewing and details! If you make this little guy with worsted weight yarn (as the pattern calls for), you will end up with a toy that is 8 inches tall, 5 inches wide and 8.5 inches long.

Here’s a super quick one for you! This Pokeball crochet pattern from lulus little shop can be made up quickly and would make the perfect little decoration to wrapping or accompaniment to a crisp $20 bill! Made with worsted yarn, it will be about 2.25″ in diameter, but make it in a smaller yarn with a smaller hook and it could be perfect keychain size!

My youngest is planning a gift exchange with his buddies and somehow I have roped myself into making a couple of these patterns from Shea Crochet: this Charmander crochet pattern and the Squirtle crochet pattern below. He expressed interest in learning to crochet and even though I knew this was not going to be a beginner project, he got me and now I’ve got this pattern and a skein of orange yarn and almost all of the pieces done: it’s sewing time. Follow my instagram to see an update when I’m done.

Here’s the other adorable pattern I bought to make (for my kid’s buddy! What was I THINKING?!). This little Squirtle Crochet Pattern (also from Shea Crochet) will sit about 7 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 9 inches long when he is finished, when made with a 3.5 mm hook and worsted yarn. Stay tuned to my Instagram to see the finished product!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

But, if you’re wanting a quicker project (and really, I should have pushed for these guys), this Starter Pokemon Plush Dolls Crochet Pattern Set from 53 Stitches would be much quicker to make up. They are not quite as accurate to the characters, but surely, they’d be recognizable, no? These are definitely more beginner friendly, so if you’re new to crochet, they might be a little more your speed.

Ok, this one definitely will not be a quick one, but how could I not include it? This Mewtwo crochet pattern (again from Shea Crochet… so many good Pokemon amigurumi patterns!) is an advanced level crochet pattern, so if you’re a newbie, this is probably not the pattern for you, but she’s a beauty if you have the skills! With 31 pages and over 70 photos to help you, you will be able to make this toy that stands approximately 20 inches tall, 7.5 inches wide and 18 inches long (includes the tail). Pretty incredible! The Pokemon fan in your life will be impressed by this one!

Ok, my 12 year-old did not pick this one out, so I’m not sure how accurate a represenation it is of the Gyarados Pokemon, but I though it looked pretty cool. This Gyarados Pokemon Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Sir Purl Grey is very animated looking and will make a doll about 36 cm (14.3 inches) long with worsted weight yarn.

I couldn’t have a Pokemon pattern round up and not include Pikachu! This sweet Pikachu Crochet Pattern from Panda Crochet Store is a deal (only ~$1.44 today!). This one is made with superfine yarn, so it would probably take a bit more time to make up, but he’s so adorable and an iconic Pokemon character, he’d be loved and recognized by anyone!

Speaking of total deals, this Eeveelution Pokemon Pattern set from Nerdy Knitter Designs is only ~$8.53 CAD right now, which is a 70% discount and an absolutely amazing price for 9 patterns that look this detailed! Amazing!

If you have never crocheted with a super bulky chenille yarn, you will be floored at how quickly you can make an adorable, chunky, super squishy and cuddly toy out of it. This Gengar Amigurumi Pattern from Azelia Crochet has 13 pages with lots of pictures and tricks to help you create tyour own amigurumi step-by-step. This would be great for a relatively new crocheter! And it’s so satisfying how quickly toys in this yarn work up!

I hope you found some inspiration for your own Pokemon crochet adventure. It’s always fun to crochet some delightful little toys for your kids (or your kids’ friends, if you’re easily tricked into extra work, like me *face palm*). May your hands be pain-free and your yarn have no yarn barfs as you push during this final stretch of making, maker-friends! Go grab a pattern today or pin it for later!
