Here is Haunter! One of the original 150 (erm 151) Pokemon who may be gone but not forgotten. Although he’s a spooky ghost I think he’s more of a practical jokester type rather than actually scary. Who could deny that mischievous grin? Crochet yours today!

Refer to this video for clarification on how to make the claws:
Attach of the large horns at the ‘top’ of the body almost in an ‘ear-like’ position. The 3rd large horn actually goes in the very back and bottom of the body like a ‘tail.’ Below the two large horns- attach the medium horns, and finally below these, attach the small horns. Attach the hands at the bottom/slightly underneath the body.

Thank you for sharing your work and creativity. My adult child is wanting to learn to crochet and loved pokemon growing up.
You’re so welcome! I hope they give crocheting pokemon a try – it’s so much fun once you get the hang of it!
I don’t see instructions for the eyes and mouth?
Hi Lora, the eyes and mouth can be made from either cutting out colored felt pieces (very last picture) or needle felting spare yarn ends (here’s an example on a different pokemon: needle felting eyes).
Thank you for the video explaining the claws, that was super helpful! I should hopefully be able to finish it tonight ??
