Many of you dear readers will know by now that my little boy is a great fan of knitted soft toys (plushies). Especially ones that have anything to do with Pokémon. So imagine my delight when researching Pokémon toys on Ravelry to stumble across the wonderful Alyssa, who creates amazing amigurumi knitting and crochet patterns!
And this is what Eric chose and asked me to knit at speed:
It’s a free pattern, and written in a very innovative way – you almost need to do no sewing up at all as it’s pretty much knitted in one. I’ve been used to having to knit all the pieces and then sew them up one by one… it’s rather painstaking. So this was a refreshing change!
I am afraid I did not do a perfect job with the duplicate stitch on the tummy, but he doesn’t seem to mind, and Wooper was duly taken to school today for a show-and-tell.
Knitted in The Wool Company‘s 100% Perendale 8 ply yarn in Aqua and Cyclamen.
Thanks once again, Alyssa!
