Charmander – character from popular franchise “Pokemon” that is managed by The
Pokémon Company, a Japanese consortium between Nintendo, Game Freak, and
Creatures.
This toy was crocheted with “Garden 10” yarn. This is 100% cotton, 280m/50g. To
create a toy with a height of 8.5 cm you must crochet with single yarn using a 1.00
mm hook. To crochet the eyes you should use a 0.75 mm hook. You can use the same
mouline yarn as was mentioned in materials or any matching color yarn, but you have
to make it two times thinner than the main yarn to crochet the eyes. The flame on the
tail end is made of carded merino wool combed sliver with a 18 mic thickness. The
stuffing material used in this toy is polyester wadding.

Tip 1
The toy must be crocheted with tight stitches, to be sure that there won’t be any holes through which stuffing material can be seen.

Tip 2

To keep track can be seen. of the beginning of the row, use a marker. Pin marker to the last loop of the row. Every new row must be finished with a loop at the marker.

All amigurumi toys are crocheted with tight stitches. Avoid small holes when stretching crochet fabric, if there are some tiny holes, use a smaller size hook. To avoid seams, all details are crocheted in a spiral without slip stitch and lifting loops. There is a chance that you will lose the beginning of the row; to avoid this, use a marker. It can be a colored pin or thread of contrasting color.

Assembly
Put the body under the bottom center of the head, adjusting it by the nose.
Sew the body with the end of orange yarn that we left before.
Fasten and cut the yarn, hiding the end inside the body.

Assembly
Place the stomach on the front part of the body so that its bottom part reaches the tail connection place and fasten it with pins. Sew the stomach with the end of flesh-colored yarn that we left before. If you can see orange color through the stomach, hide it by guiding flesh-colored yarn through these holes. Fasten and cut the yarn, hiding the end inside the body.

Assembly
Place the hind legs symmetrically to the bottom part of the body so that the squished parts lean against the body, and fasten them with pins.
Sew the hind legs with the end of orange yarn that we left before.
Fasten and cut the yarn, hiding the ends inside the body.
You don’t need to make it balanced as Charmander will be standing leaning on his tail.

Assembly
Place the forelegs on each sides of the body, a little bit lower than the connection of body and head. Raise one of the hands and fasten them with pins.
Sew the forelegs with the ends of orange yarn that we left before.
Fasten and cut the yarn, hiding the end inside the body.

Assembly
Place the tail at the back of the body so that its color is perfectly matched with the bottom part of the stomach and fasten it with pins.
Sew the tail with the ends of fleshcolored and orange yarn, keeping the color
Fasten and cut the yarn, hiding the ends inside the body.

Assembly
Put both parts of the eye against each other as shown on the photo. Fasten and cut the unnecessary ends of yarn from the beginning of crocheting on the back sides of the details. Split the second end of white yarn into strands and leave only one strand, because we will need very thin yarn for sewing. Sew both parts of the eye along the back side so that the seem is invisible. Do not cut the yarn, you will need the end of each color to sew the eye to the head. Repeat with the second eye. Place the eyes symmetrically a bit higher than the nose and fasten them with pins. Sew the eyes to the head along the whole circumference keeping the color of yarn.

Assembly
Place and sew the pupils on the center of the navy blue part of the eyes. Connect thin black
yarn and embroider the eyebrows, nostrils and mouth.
Embroider sparkles on the edge of both eyes and two tiny teeth making a few stitches with white yarn.
All yarns must be fastened, cut and hidden inside the head.

Assembly
Take carded wool in all three colors. Take every color of wool and split them into thin strands. Put together several strands of different colors.
Insert the hook into the end of the tail. Take a strand that we prepared before. Pull the strand into the stitch so that the length of the strand is equal on both sides.
Prepare the second strand of wool of different colors. Insert the hook perpendicular to the first strand.

Assembly

Pull the strand in the same way as you did the first time.
Cut the loops.
Comb the wool, in this way you will comb out unnecessary wool.
Pull the wool together, cut it if necessary and make it look like a fire flame.

Assembly
Congratulations, your Charmander is ready!
