Amigurumi Pichu Free Pattern



And finally I’m done working on its. Requires a lot of time to finish this one. I had many problems when creating the ears. It got a little stressful. I usually make a pattern for amigurumi just three or four days, but this time was very time-consuming and draining of mind , especially for the ears. From the body, head, hands, foots, and tail I only need two days to finish it, and take more than 3 days to only make the ears. But now I can finish it and I’m very excited for it. You can enjoy to make Amigurumi Pichu right now! Amigurumi Pichu is about 5 inches from the bottom to the top of the ears.

Assembly
This assembly is just advice from me. You still need to use your imagination to make it looks good in your eyes.
1) Sew the head onto the body.
2) Sew the ears onto the head.
3) Sew the arms to the body. I placed the arms directly under the head and between  the spikes.
4) Sew the foots to the body. I placed the foots in between round 5th and 6th.
5) Sew the tail. I placed the tail in between round 7th and 8th.

Faces
I’m using felt for the eyes and the cheeks. I placed the eyes in between round 11th and 13th with 6st between them. I placed the cheeks in between round 13th and 18th.
For the nose and mouth I’m using embroidery thread. The nose is in round 14th and and the mouth is in round 16th.
