Eevee with modifications


img_1792

I had a friend request some Pokémon for his wife. They are quite the Pokémon Go players. He wanted Eevee, Polliwag, Vulpix, Jigglypuff and Ponyta. We decided Ponyta might not translate to stuffed form. Not being one to recreate the wheel, I checked the internet for patterns for these Pokémon. If you haven’t gone to Wolf Dreamer’s site, I highly recommend it. There are some great patterns there. I used this Pattern as my starting point for Eevee. I don’t use a lot of felt (I never have it at home), so I added crocheted eyes. I changed the legs to a simpler version. I also didn’t line the ears with felt, leaving them simply crocheted. Finally, I made a small modification to the tail.

My colors:

I Love This Yarn in Toasted Almond, Ivory, Brown, Black and a tiny bit of White.

The only other supplies I used are polyfiberfill and a Size E crochet hook.

Using a Size E hook my finished Eevee was about 6 inches tall and 8-10 inches long. She is super cute which doesn’t really translate in the picture.

Modifications to the pattern.
