Baby Squirtle (with pattern)

I am on a roll :)  Pikachu is already in the works :iconpikalaplz:  Anyway, here is Squirtle!  Hope you guys like him!

As usual, I ask that you please credit me should you use or alter this pattern!  I spent my time not studying and typing this up instead!  You probably don't want me as your dentist.. ._. Kidding, I will be an awesome dentist ;)  Also, please don't sell the finished product since I do not own this character.  Let me know if you catch any errors!  Happy crocheting!

Note: The FO point should be approximately in the midline of the back of his head. Yes, it sort of matters because he should have subtle cheeks and a slight nose bulge.  Knowing where you are will help you stuff "strategically".

25.  FO



**For optional fingers, include puff stitches.  Otherwise, ignore the slip stitches and puff stitches and just do single crochet stitches.

Puff stitch:
Do 3 incomplete double crochet stitches (all but the last step of the double crochet stitch) into the same stitch.   You should have 4 loops on your hook at this point.  Yarn over and draw the yarn through all 4 loops to complete.  Make sure  to tighten this stitch as much as you can before continuing to prevent holes from forming.

7.  Sc 4, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 4 (18)
8.  Sc around (18)

9.  Sc 5, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 5 (20)
10.  FO

(The FO point should be in the midline of the underside of the arm.)



**For the puff stitches this time, I wanted the toes to be larger so I added one more stitch.
Do 4 incomplete double crochet stitches (all but the last step of the double crochet stitch) into the same stitch.   You should have 5 loops on your hook at this point.  Yarn over and draw the yarn through all 5 loops to complete.

Same thing applies, toes are optional!  Substitute puffs and slip stitches with single crochet stitches if you don't want toes (but who can resist that!).

10.  [Sc 6, inc] around (24)
11.  FO

(His feet should be feet shaped so make sure to keep that in mind when attaching and stuffing!)



**Be sure to stuff as you go along.  Stuff more at the tip of the tail (rounds 1-8) to give it the round shape.  Do not overstuff in the middle portion though or else you will have trouble wrapping and sewing/shaping the tail.

22.  Sc around (15)
23.  [Sc 3, dec] (12)
24.  Sc around (12)
25.  FO

**Note on assembling: When sewing on his head and limbs, I lay everything on a flat surface because I wanted that "belly-flopping" shape.  The head and limbs all ended up being part way between the yellow and brown of the shell.  Don't worry about this because the white rim will end up bordering along the shell and limbs and help to give it a nice shape and finish.

**For the white rim around the shell, I single crocheted along a long chain and sewed this strip along the edges of the shell and body parts.  The length will probably vary depending on how you've put your Squirtle together.  I assembled everything first before making the rim.  I ended up needing about 85 stitches in length.  Before addition of shell rim:

**Shell details and eyes are needle-felted, though yarn/thread and cut-out felt should work fine!

Hello. Pattern's under the description if you are on a browser unless you are using your phone; you'll have to click the "circled i" or the tab next to the person icon that both should be under the title of the picture
I love it! its amazing!. :3

I generally consider myself to have a high resistance to all manners of cute and cuddly things. But this, this is too.adorable. I am on the verge of making horribly embarrassing noises and that ought to be considered a testament to your skill.

(Translation: AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH, it's cuuuuute!)
