Crochet a Weedle

IMG_2581

Gotta catch ‘em all! Whip up a crocheted Weedle, and it’s sure to be a hit. Made with worsted weight yarn, this finished doll measures approximately 6½ inches tall.

Find all of my other Pokemon patterns, including the Pokeball, here.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed:

Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in light raspberry and aran. I also used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in mustard.

G (4mm) crochet hook

Poly-fil

Yarn needle

9mm safety eyes

This pattern is worked “in-the-round”, and stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted.
