Mini Snorlax Pokemon Amigurumi Pattern

posted in: Free Amigurumi Patterns | 0

He’s a big Pokemon, and not just in size. Snorlax is an iconic classic favourite from the original Pokemon series. I’ve seen so many amazing huge Snorlax plushies- from huggable pillows to entire bean-bag beds! My version is a lot smaller than these, but still cute and fat! I was inspired by my panda pattern to modify the colors and make this version- possibly the Smallest Snorlax you’ve ever seen. I mean if you really think about it- isn’t Snorlax exactly like a big fat lazy panda?

I hope you enjoy this crochet pattern!

For the next row I recommend using markers to mark the location of each increase if you aren’t able to tell by looking at your work where increases are. The locations of these increases will be important later. Mark the ‘second stitch’ of the increase, and mark all increases except the last one (you should have 5 marked places.)

R6. ‘Sc 4, inc’ around (36)

Now work in Rows to make the face.

Row 1. Sc 4 (4) tch

Row 4. Sc 6, inc (8) tch

Row 5. Sc 8 (8) tch

Row 6. Sc 8 (8) tch

Note [ ] denotes all stitches within brackets are worked in the same foundation stitch:

Row 7. Sc, [Dc, Tr], [Dc, Sc], sl st, [Sc, Dc], [Tr, Dc], Sc, sl st.

Finally, you will crochet a final round around the side of the face and body until you reach the ‘other side’/ beginning of Row 7.

Sc ‘down’ the side of the face working in whatever spaces are available (see this video about crocheting along the sides of work- but use Sc instead of slip stitches.) On my work I reached the bottom of the face in 4 sc.

When you reach the body, Sc in the round but add an Inc at every marked stitch from above. As you work around you should increase 5 times.

When you reach the other side of the body/bottom of the face, Sc up the side of the face until you reach the place where the ‘eyebrow’ begins. On my work I used 4 sc to reach this location.

F/o and leave quite a long tail for sewing to the body and head.

Assembly of Crochet Snorlax

Assemble as shown in pictures- be sure to pin limbs in place before sewing to properly adjust position.

Head: Attach the ears to the head, covering the ‘corners’ of the head. Attach the head to the top of the body.

Body: Sew on the tan stomach and face. There is a part of the stomach/face where the work narrows at the ‘neck’ area. Use this location to line up the stomach/face piece at Snorlax’s neck (where you attached the head to the body.) After attaching this piece, sew on the arms to either side (the underside of the arms is placed at the junction of the stomach to the body) and the feet (the outer edges of the feet line up with the outer edge of the stomach.)

Facial details, claws, and teeth were added by needle felting loose yarn ends .
