Vaporeon Amigurumi Pattern

posted in: Free Amigurumi Patterns | 2

Vaporeon is the water-type Eeveelution from exposure to a water-stone. This aquamarine Pokemon has so many cute water features like a mermaid-tail, ear fins, and a coffee-filter neck reminscent of gills! Vaporeon has a lot of delicate pieces, so be sure to have time and patience when you decide to attempt this pattern.

When completed, Vaporeon fits in the palm of an adult sized hand. I hope you enjoy crocheting this little Vaporeon!

Begin making the frills:

    Ch 7. Turn / Continue in 3rd ch from hook: Sc 4, sl st to the next stitch on circular base, tch

From now on, work all stitches in back loops only

Do not work in the ‘sl st and tch’ from the previous step. Skip these and work up the previous frill:
Sc 4, ch 3, turn, skip the ch 3 and Sc 4 back towards the circular base. Sl st to the next stitch on circular base, and tch.
Repeat the above steps (between ***) until you reach the end of the round. F/o and Sew the edge of the last frill to the back of the first frill. Weave in the yarn end.

R1. 6 Sc in MR (6)

R2. Inc around (12)

R3. ‘Sc 1, Inc’ around (18)

Begin creating the front features of the helmet/face:

Small side protrusion: [Hdc, ch 2, Hdc ] , sc 2 ,
‘Noseguard’ protrusion: Ch 4 – turn work/ continue in 2nd ch from hook: Sl st, sc, Hdc. Sl st to next stitch on base.

Row 2.Sc 4, tch

Row 4. Sc 3, tch

Row 5. Sc 1, dec. F/o

The webbing is sewn with the long side (Row 1) onto the fin and one of the small sides onto the head. I recommend waiting until you have finished the head and helmet before sewing the webbing onto the fins so that you can guarantee proper placement of the webbing pieces.

R10-11. Sc around (5) for two rounds

You’re going to see some unusual increasing and decreasing in the next rounds. My goal with this was to try and give the tail a ‘curved’ shape so it curls around the side of the body.

R13-14. Sc 2, Dec, Sc 1, Inc (6) for two rounds

R15. Sc 4, Inc, Inc (8)

Finally, F/o, stuff well, and leave a long tail for sewing to the back of the body.
Tail/Back Spikes

Using Dark Blue:

Ch 20, Turn / Continue in 2nd ch from hook:
Sl st, Ch 3, Sl st into the next chain.
Repeat above (ch 3, then sl st to next chain) to form spikes. At the end, F/o and leave a long yarn tail for sewing to the back and tail.

Assembly of Crochet Vaporeon

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

Head: Place the helmet over the top of the head such that the nose-guard protrusion is pointing down just above the nose. Sew in place. Arrange the fins for the ears and head: the ears are placed on either side of the helmet over the junction of the helmet and head, and the center fin is palced at the top of the helmet above the forehead. After these are placed, sew on the yellow webbing- making sure that it touches the side of the face (ears) or the top of the helmet (top fin.)

Body: Place the coffee-filter-I-mean-neck-frill piece under the head. Note that on my Vaporeon I pulled this piece slightly to the back, meaning the center of this piece is not directly on top of the body, but rather at the lower back of Vaporeon’s head. Think of it as a ‘popped collar’ sort of placement. Sew the head to the body with the filter in place beneath.

The ‘bumps’ on the bottom of the body piece are meant to be thighs. Sew the feet over the bumps angling slightly outward. Attach the arms to the body, placing in between the feet, and so that the tips of the arms just touch the ground, and the top sides of the arms are positioned as ‘shoulders.’ The tail is attached to the back of the center of the body, angled so that the tail curves slightly forward around the side of the body. Finally the tail/back spikes piece is sewed over the top and center of the tail, and extends slightly up the back of Vaporeon.

The eye details were added by needle felting loose yarn ends . Alternatively, one can cut out and attach colored felt pieces.

    The spanish translation is wrong. IT says Diciembre, instead of Dec. (Decrease)

      Thanks for commenting! Unfortunately I do not make the translations for the website (they are auto generated by Google I believe.) I have only posted the original website in English! Sorry about that.
