Put eye into place, embroider the nose. Sew the ears to place, use the eye placement as guidance.

Shave some red chalk pastels then apply with cosmetic applicator (recommended: eyeshadow or lip applicator) or just cut some two small circles from thin red felt and glue them on.

Your pikachu is done! Secure some ribbon to attach some keychain or ball chain. Pikachu is a perfect companion for your other pokemon items such as NDS case, pouch or even dust plug.

    Hi Judith,
    This pattern is so adorable thank you so much for sharing it. I am a little confused about row 8 is it 2sc, dec or is it supposed to be 1sc, dec? Thanks so much!

      • Judith Chen says:

        Hi Daphne, row 8 is correct. There will be one stitch left in the end and that is just how it is πŸ™‚ One stitch will not bother the overall shape so no worries.

        Hi Judith, thank you so much for sharing! But I’m still confused on row8. I tried 2sc,Dec for the entire row, and I’ve tried (2sc, Dec)rep for the entire row, I still can’t get 18 stitches in the end.

        Thank you so much for sharing your free patterns, they are so adorable ^^ I’m currently attempting to make your cute pikachu head pattern but am also having problems understanding round 8 (2 sc, inv dec). I’m still new to crocheting and could just be doing it wrong, so would you mind clarifying what I’m supposed to do for that round? I took your instruction as saying to single crochet for two stitches and then invisible decrease the next one, but if I’m reading it/ counting correctly that leaves 3 extra stitches till the end of the row. .. So am I missing something or is that how it’s supposed to turn out? Either way I love your patterns and am looking forward to attempting more if I am able to complete this pikachu ^^

        Hi Sarah, yes it leaves 3 stitches in the end which you inv dec in the end and leave one just like that. one stitch will not affect much in this case so no worries πŸ™‚
