Sobble Pokemon Amigurumi Pattern

posted in: Uncategorized | 0


Crochet yourself a tiny Sobble, the water-type starter from the Galar region: Pokemon Sword and Shield!

Some interesting Pokedex information about Sobble: it is able to change it’s own colors when in water to hide, like a chameleon. When it gets embarrassed, it secrets water (like sweat) from its body and uses it to disappear by camouflage. Sobble’s tears can make others cry with the effect of 100 onions.

Materials

  • Yarn: Turquoise Blue, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Yellow
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook – fiber-fill stuffing
  • Felt: black and white (for the eyes) and felting needle if desired
  • Scissors, yarn needle for assembly

 Abbreviations

R(#): Round number
MR: magic ring
Sc: single crochet
Inc: increase (2 sc in same stitch)

Using dark blue, stitch a stripe across the top of the head crest using either surface crocheting, or a layer of Sl stitches working along the top side of the higher headpiece.

Assembly of Crochet Sobble

Assemble as shown in pictures- be sure to pin limbs in place before sewing in place.
Head: Sew the yellow head fin to the tip of the head. Sew the head onto the top of the body.
Appendages: sew the hands to the end of the arms, and feet to the thighs.
Body: Sew the stomach to the front of the body. Attach the arms to either side of the body at shoulder level. Attach the tail to the back of the body and thighs to either side of the stomach- arrange the tail and legs such that Sobble is able to sit up balanced between these 3 limbs.

Facial details (eyes and cheeks) were added by needle felting loose yarn ends . Alternatively, felt pieces can be cut out and glued on. The eyes and cheeks are placed over the color changes of R7 of the head.
