Jumbo Mini-Pikachu Amigurumi Pattern

posted in: Free Amigurumi Patterns | 0

Ok. What is a ‘jumbo-mini’ Pikachu? Well, it’s a modification of my mini Pikachu pattern with Jumbo yarn! This was my first experience with Jumbo yarn and I’m in love with it. It’s so full, thick, and soft! So how about it- are you ready to up-size your Pikachu!?

Jumbo-Mini Pikachu is about 7 inches (~18cm) tall from feet to the tip of the ears, and has a 5-inch (~13cm) armspan. For my fellow Canadians, this is basically a bit taller than a medium coffee cup from Tim’s.

This pattern is also available as an instantly downloadable PDF with step-by-step instructions and a 1-Page Quickprint Summary of the entire pattern on one single printer-friendly greyscale page. Click here to get yours!
