Totodile Amigurumi Pattern

posted in: Free Amigurumi Patterns | 5

Totodile has been on my crochet list for a while- years, actually. I was always stumped on how to tackle crocheting the snout and jaw. Then I stumbled upon this amazing free pattern for the Small but Mighty Dragon . After trying their pattern to make the dragon’s snout I was completely inspired to make Totodile based off of their design.
Anyhow, without further ado, here for your crocheting pleasure is the Totodile crochet pattern. This feisty crocodile is the water-type starter from Generation 2 and is a bit of a prankster. I hope you enjoy this little addition to your amigurumi Pokemon team!

Legs: Attach the feet to the bottom of each leg such that the flat heel entirely covers the hole of the bottom of the leg.

Body: Attach the head to the top of the body, the tail to the back, and the legs to either side. Attach the yellow chevron at the chest and the arms at either end of the chevron, angled outward.

I hope you enjoy your amigurumi Totodile!

      Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my site. The eyes were made by needle felting extra yarn ends. Here is a video I made on how to do this- for a different pokemon, but the technique is the same. . I hope that helps! – Lisa from StringsAway
